UN1 CWP upgrade

If I told you that it is possible to make a super strong CWP for UN1, how many would be interested?

OEM crown gear has 35 teeth 194mm diameter; pinion has 9 teeth, both right hand spiral.
I'd like to revise number of teeth thus making parts stronger and keep 3.750 ratio. I'm considering using Klingelnberg-Palloid cut and the best steel on the market . Cryogenic tempering will be available at small extra cost. Since CWP is the next weak link, it makes sense to make this part(s) stronger. All V8 are vulnerable (especially tuned ones), as well as high performance 4L-s.
Please let me know if you are interested. I'd like to initiate a Group Buy in the near future

Price estimate would be under $1995 /piece, ground and Cryo Treated. They should be able to handle 400 LB-FT.
Approx 24 weeks lead time from the completion of the design.
Any thoughts?


Cheers

400 LB Ft equals 400bhp.
Toghether with a Quaife ATB diff or other LSD will raise that number significantly.

But whats are the other weak links in the UN1 gearbox. Ill guess its not just the CWP thats the weak link.

400 lb ft = 400 BHP only at a particular RPM. What is important as far as a transaxle is concerned is its torque rating. That can be mitigated somewhat by how light the car is and how sticky the tires are.
 
I don`t know if its been mentioned but the gearbox casing has been known to flex slightly allowing bearings to move as far as I can remember.. I wouldn`t really put lots of power through one. I`d use a Porsche box instead, given the choice.
