Fitting a lsd in a bmw diff

Having read quite a few threads into Titan lsds in Bmw diffs and not found any info, does anyone have a guide about changing then out and setting them up, the required backlash etc?

Thanks in advance

R400 D  with a Titan lsd. Not looking to get into a debate on the pros and cons of various options, just looking for the information to rebuild what I have. 
 

Thanks

Fair enough. R&RT it is then. For what Phil and Olly charge over and above parts it isn’t worth trying it yourself unless you absolutely know what you’re doing.

Oh get there oil for it to, far better than other lsd oil.

Thanks for your thoughts, however I am really after a guide to doing it. I suspect that I am not the only 7 owner that would like to know what the set up entails.

I plan to do a rebuild of my Titan carbon plated LSD with sintered plates this winter, hopefully I can put together a guide with photos and instructions. Likely won't be finished until Feb or so, though.

There are a few videos on Youtube by an outfit called Racing Diffs  like this one that may help. As for setting the preload I would talk to Titan directly. https://youtu.be/F7QTGKCcWVU

Nick, thanks for this.

i have got a rebuilt lsd to fit, so I'm hoping it will not be too challenging.
