Off the top of my head maybe 5 front 5 center and 2 in the rear. Its hard to recomend diff oils without knowing exact track conditions because there are so many factors to consider, but 552 sounds like a good starting point and just make diff changes from there. Normally people dont use torsens because it makes handling a bit erratic. You can try using a torsen diff in the front but normally thats only if the track is smooth. For the inside of a torsen I use any automotive grease, enough to coat everything with a little extra(don't fill it up). hope this helps
