Zexel has some good information on their FSAE page:

http://www.torsen.com/fsae/fsaefaqframes.htm

I've had this page bookmarked for a year or two, and its fairly useful for answering diff questions. Lots of basic FAQs like, "How does a diff work?"

Some of the non-technical folks might find it useful combined with the cutaway.

EDIT: The FSAE Page has an FAQ geared towards the Torsen Type-1 (T1), not the Coupe's T2 diff. But again, its a good page for getting general info. It looks like the T-1 has a different configuration for the spur gears.

EDIT AGAIN: They used to have a section comparing the T2 to the T1 -- had lots of good info. It looks like that page has been rearranged, since I can't find it.

Congrats Jon! You will be very happy :)

Most difficult part for me was to keep RPMS low during break in...good luck :)

See the following pic. I read this as two thirds of maximum road speed.
155 x .67 = 104 MPH. So as long as you do not exceed 104 MPH, it doesn't matter what the engine RPM is.
If anyone reads this differently, I'm interested in your thoughts.
