Limited Slip Differential -- Coding needed?

Curious as to if any coding is required after installing a limited slip differential?
If so what is it?

Nope, No coding necessary assuming you keep the same rear ratio.

Is there specific coding to be done if you do change ratios? The car has a manual trans.

No problem with the MT6. But the ZF8 with bring up a warning when you get to 8th saying there is an issue if the ration is not what it expects. It can be coded but not simply.

I asked because I was reading a thread in the F30 3 series forum where it was stated the wheels sensors need recalibrating after differential install.
I had not heard that anywhere before. I know I didn't code anything on my M240 after I had a Quaife installed.
