Default gearbox questions

I would like to know if there are differences between a s1 gearbox and a s2 gearbox ,which one is the better?
Also would the lsd of any of these gearboxes fit in a fiesta mk1 xr2 gearbox?

The series 1 has shorter ratio's. better for acceleration and they both have different mountings. regards the mk1 xr2 box its a 4 speed. You'd be aswell converting to a 5 speed out of a mk2 xr2 or escort rs box. the lsd will fit in a mk2 xr2 box though.
