Yeah, that was a given though I wouldn't be surprised if wavetrac offers a core-exchange service like powerzone does/did.

They still don't have a DQ381 unit shipping, right?
They mentioned in a post on instagram they can assist.

I saw them reply on another instagram thread about this and potentially shipping soon too.

Removal of ring gear and drilling/tapping the ring gear so that it can be bolted back on.

Right, I wasn't sure if he thought that the actual Haldex housing itself needed to be machined which I thought was the situation with the Powerzone unit that another user here had done.

That aside, is the factory unit considered a weak link, and would the Wavetrac require the same fluid service interval?

Nah I understood it was all to do with the diff itself just wasn't sure if they were talking about more than separating the ring + drill/tapping the holes to mount the new ring. In hindsight, hard to imagine anything other than that but wish they were clearer about it in their message.

I might look into this if it eliminates a weaker link.

The powerzone unit removes the stock diff, fixes the wavetrac unit to the gen5 ring and pinion, and adds new axle stubs to fit the gen5 2.0t rear axles (the 2.5t rear axles are different, and thus powerzone sells a different 2.5t part).

Not really. The weakest link on a car with a built drivetrain is the rear axles, then the driveshaft and bevel box. Haven't heard of people breaking the diff itself, even with an aggressive haldex controller/clutches.

Checked in with wavetrac, and they haven't even done the test fit on the pre-production units since they made the posts about it.

lol. Well, I just got an email from driftworks that the status has been updated to backordered 2-4 weeks. I assume that's just assuming the test fit works...
