I don't think there is a front LSD available.

You should not have to consider upgrading diffs ever for the sake of power. There only one front diff I know of that you might get. It is from Toyota Team Australia for around $5000 usd.

Get yourself a cusco clutch pack for the rear. I have heard of torsens giving up on harsh racing conditions and high power. I have never heard of the front and centers breaking for those reasons. What kind of racing are you doing?
