or poss some mad project car over on passionford with a modded box?

it may be poss to have the internals changed out for straight cut gears

I thought some of the St tuners would of done one by now as there is ment to be hundreds of volvo 850's with 6-800 hp

Nope no st is running near that torque and i can safely say that the M66 is nowehere near strong enough to take that sort of power. I would speak to Bernie at competition transmission services, what he doesnt know about gearboxes isnt worth knowing.
