As for sourcing the hardware... well... Trade secret. But I doubt Ace would have class 10.9 bolts in 200mm length, few places in the country do. Let's just say it took me some days and lots of phone calls to find . You won't find them on the shelf anywhere... I'm looking at 1-2 week lead times on the bolts as it is, as standard sizes usually only run up to 120mm-140mm through most suppliers.
McMaster Carr could probably hook you up. Or worse yet Fastenal, but you would have to double your price to use their hardware.

I know this is a serious issue with the Honda guys running B series transmissions due to the multi-piece cases. Mainly guys running H2B, making the massive amount of torque on boosted H's. I do believe there is a company that makes a case girdle that has similar goals of your design.

If I was planning on keeping the five clunker in my car with gears (RA or other) I would definitely find this worth every penny. However, I cannot bring myself to spend 4k on gears alone....
