The 2.82 upgrade is common on the 400E to make it quicker off the line, and generally more responsive to drive... more like a 500E. The Euro models came with a 2.65 ratio, the USA models got neutered with the 2.26 ratio for fuel economy reasons or some other such BS. Should be a direct swap, just make sure it's an ASR diff if your car has ASR (or not, if you don't.) Almost definitely NOT a limited-slip unless someone paid a LOT of money for the conversion ($1k+ last time I checked.)
