981 went to 1" larger-diameter tires, so it's effectively geared ~4% taller.

The tall gearing never bothered me, really. In my Cayman ('11 2.9-liter) I'd just usually be a gear down from "normal"...

I've driven them back-to-back on the street and at Watkins Glen, Palmer MA, and New Hampshire Motor Speedway. IMO the 987s steering, while definitely *heavier*, doesn't really provide much if any...

Troof. I never had a problem with my AP1's steering, but '17 BRZ steering feel is far better.

Maybe try offset top mounts for more camber? Wouldn't go bigger than 3mm spacers if using stock length studs.

In my experience a mild-preload clutch-type acts a lot more linearly and with less cycling between full-lock/full-open behavior vs. helicals. Helical in my S2000 and in my BRZ act fully locked...

IMO helical diffs aren't the best. They tend to be overly locked under light load, but will open up if one of the rears is sufficiently unloaded. I've found a light-preload clutch-type with ramps...

I found two different part numbers:
