SS diff swap in LT turbo truck.

Hi guys just wondering if the SS diff bolt right in? What type of HP is the limit on the SS diff? I need a diff real bad and just looking for strong bolt in option.
If not I'll go for a 8.8 ford.
The truck is used for drifts and drags.

The TB SS rear axle will swap into a 2002-09 trailblazer. The diff is much larger 9.5 vs the 8.0/8.6 units. If your truck is a V8 you have to uses the 2WD TB SS stock drive shaft or use NAPPA UV joint #447 with the stock 5.3 drive shaft. I6 must use the #447 joint.
Not sure of the HP rating. 2002-05 do not use the ABS sensors from the 06-09 TB SS rear axles. Just cut off the wires.
