That gearset is good if you are going to be staying around the 300whp range

Those look great for a mid power level WRX. Cant beat the price. I wonder how much wider/stronger they are from stock gears

my tuner said cryogenically treated gears are brittle...of course you could probably find other tuners who swear by them..like just about anything aftermarket

Good price, but not worth the money. If you plan to be in the 300whp+ range, then for all intents and purposes they are not much better than stock gears.

The bulk of your expense is going to be in pulling the trans, putting the trans back in, cracking the trans case and replacing the gears. Working on the trans, even for a master mechanic is labor intensive. Gears/bearings have to be pressed off and back on. Seals, gaskets have to replaced. Everything has to be cleaned. And any damaged bearings and/or gears or shafts or synchros have to be replaced.

Gasket/seal kit will cost about $65-85 (depending on your relationship with a Subaru dealership), some of the larger bearings with flange can cost $120-150. I'm guessing that the synchros would be around $250.

Given these costs . . .
