As far as handling goes it works like this from best to worst.
Torsen best but only available in 10 bolt.
Strength is in inverse order.

sorry to revive a dead thread but im curious about the ABS stuff. Im looking at a used 9" that doesnt have ABS where as my car has the 4 channel stock. What needs to be done to get the ABS off my car? The light doesnt bother me, ill just pull the bulb. Probably noobish here but can I just not hook the ABS up? Or does that cause big problems? I dont need ABS and dont plan on using it. Im just trying to figure out how to unhook the thing.
Im taking my car here in, in a couple weeks to have it tuned for the cam, could I just have the tuner remove the ABS on the rear and then i can drive without it for a while until I put in my 9"?

I eliminated my ABS with an SJM Manufacturing ABS Delete Kit.
The kit comes with a Wilwood Proportioning valve and pre-bent lines. You will need to cut the lines and connect them into a T fitting.
Call them up and ask to speak to Steve. He know his stuff! He will also tell you the easy way to shut off the ABS INOP, BRAKE, and TCS lights without breaking bulbs or rigging.
After you have the kit installed, you will need to take the car out and adjust the valve so that the rear wheels no longer lock up before the fronts.

After you delete it, you will need to do a few easy steps to get rid of the lights. I can tell you which ones and how to do it.
Deleting the ABS actually frees up the cluttered engine bay and you drop about 16lbs. off of the nose!

Well, Im not popular as far as being a Ford guy (Ive got a 1965 F-100). But why not buy a Detroit locker and a Posi? Thats the way I roll. Know your going to the track? it only takes about 30 to 45 min to change out the chunk. Just my opinion, thats the way I do it. By the way, Ive never had a problem with a limited slip, and Im pushing a big ole lead sled around.
Just a thought
Edit: dang I didnt even notice the date on this thread

HPtuners will not get rid of the lights. You will need to pull some fuses and splice some wires and ground them out.
The kit cost me around $140 and is pretty easy to install. You will need to make some double flares (PRACTICE ON SPARE PARTS) and be creative to insure that it looks nice. I got a kit without the line lock since I do not really car for one right now.
How does it stop? Well, it will rip the eyeballs outta your head and I have not even begun to really adjust the regulator!

Hours to complete roughly? Sounds like making the lines would consume most of the time.
