I would try to pick up a second hand XR6 or 8 diff,They have 3.45:1 centre gears,will improve your acceleration from your stand geared diff.Or you could go for 3.7's.See how you go.Price wise i was looking for one of those XR diffs a couple of months ago i priced one at FTG autosalvage they quoted me 800 dollars,so shop a€round you may find cheaper.

XR8's had a 3.27 LSD not a 3.45

Why do you ahve ported injectors? there isnt any point, you will find it is running more rich now and loosing performance.
