suggestions for gear sets

i was wondering if any one knew if there was a good gear set for my 2008 wrx for about 2 grand maybe a little more depending on my situation because thats all i can spend, im looking at about 400-450 hp as my goal and before i do that i wanna build up my tranny, and i was wondering if any other model wrx or legacy gears would fit our trannys. if i could have some email links or something that would be helpful, and please no smart comments i just need a question answered. thanks

Keep saving then. If you want that power you got to pay to play. Contact either ds1motorsports or andrewtech for your options. Just google them and you can find both their websites.

I have personally delt with AndrewTechAutomotive and gave him some decent cash with nothing but happy results.. I broke a shift rail which is NOT a part that he installed but he fixed it free. Andrew is a great guy and will work with you and he knows his stuff. He has my vote..

I tried going to their website to see how close you are (they're really not far from you) and it like shitcanned my PC. Something's up with that website. I think they had an angry customer get them on some "do not go to for any reason" website list. That or their web server is hacked.

Mosc what exactly did it do to your comp?
I booted up my linux comp to go to it so I wouldn't have to worry about viruses. The site seemed fine and I had no problems with it on linux but I would wait for some clerification becore going there.

Well, mostly Firefox refused to load it in order to protect me. It crashed in the process and became unresponsive.

This is true. PPGs will run around 4000 for a standard set. Keep in mind that one (like me) can spend in upwards of 12gs on a fully built PPG 5 speed dog box with all the extras and Front PPG LSD.. They can get pricy but PPG offers "Stages" if you will or "Budget" options... All kinds of price ranges..

I've heard alot about M factory but the last time I they were being discussed their gear ratio was short. Have they upgraded to an OEM or closer to ratio? If one plans to drive the car daily the ratio could be a deal breaker. Just one more thing for 08silverwerx to think about.
