Nothing against PPG or Albins, but I'd wager their consumer grade kits aren't anywhere near as finished as something coming out of Emco.
And to touch on this a bit, reiterating what I said before, the gears they'll be producing for us will be the same material, quality, finishing processes that are used in ALL of their motorsport gears. The great thing about all of this, is the price point. Right inline, with all the other quality aftermarket sets available now but as a complete package minus the diffs (working on that, but not a major concern right now as great options are already available)
Hey don't get me wrong, I think the PPG units and the Albins stuff is fantastic and is the best stuff out right now. But.....
After talking with them John & Rich (Owners) and their mechanical engineer Anthony extensively about the Subaru 5MT and how weak it is. They gave me the opportunity to pitch them, and I earned the opportunity to get them to make a product that quite honestly, is going to be the best gear set available for the Subaru 5MT and any other Subaru gear box going forward.
I have a great relationship with the guys at EMCO, I've been invited by them the last two years as a guest for the EMCO gears Classic at Mid-Ohio to hang out in their suite and mingle with some of the biggest names / team owners in road racing motorsport.
I'm all for quality and providing the best for my customers, so are many of the vendors on this site!
There are products that are sold on this site by vendors that I wouldn't use on my car or sell to any of my customers.
But that's just how I roll.
I don't make a ton of money, but I love and enjoy what I do. That's all that matters
