Looks like the bolt set will be all 17 bolts on the transmission case ahead of the center diff section. I'm not bothering with the center diff section because the upgraded hardware will be threading into the aluminum case, and the thread is not deep enough to reach the class 10.9 bolt's recommended minimum torque spec without risking stripping out the crappy cast aluminum material being threaded into . In other words, stronger center diff section bolts would be too strong for the Subaru 5mt!

So for the 17 class 10.9 bolts that can be safely installed: This is ball park right now, but the retail price will probably end up falling between $80-$100. Hopefully closer to $80, but I'll have to get in touch with my supplier and figure out what the minimum orders are for each part# and see what kind of deal I can swing.

Once I get the reinforcement deal all complete I'll move on to the bolt set and get in touch with some vendors to see if anybody is game for carrying these... I can't see why they wouldn't be.
