We're just waiting for the owner to sign off, we're still looking at Oct-Nov date, the main hang up is they have other jobs ahead of mine. A majority of the engineering has been done as far as measuring center distances, shaft size and case dimensions. ( the only way they are able to quote me so they know how much material, ect.
I promise as soon as there is a update it will be posted. I don't want to jump the gun here. I'm hoping to be at PRI in the EMCO booth showing off the Subaru stuff in DEC, I'll be there no matter what but possibly as a sales rep for my line. Still working those details out.
Please be patient guys.

Swapped my forester 4.444 oem 5spd for a 08 6spd. "new DD/autox car" so far i love the gearing and have the SpecB 5th, 6th gears to highway driving is great. I havent have the chance too autox it with the new setup though.
Sorry too take this off topic. Ive been mentioning these new gears too everyone...
After talking with Matt Monson and Micah the 3.90 is probably going to be the best option as the r180 in 3.90 are readily available. the 4.11 would be a great option too! I'll work with them on the ratios as soon as I get my final numbers. Gearing is going to play a role in overall strength of the gears as well so I want to make these as motorsport oriented as possible but keeping strength as one of the major priorities.
one step at a time here. With the EMCO stuff coming out, you will no longer have to sacrifice one thing for the other.
As these will be a complete gearbox. No ala carte billet selector fork options, transfer gear options, ect. All those items are included in one set price.
You guys are going to be blown away by the quality of these gears, I have now seen almost all aftermarket manufactures gear sets available for the Subaru and NONE of them compare to the actual exterior finish, of the EMCO Gears.
Smooth, mirror finish, no burring or sharp edges.
