i too blew one of these rears up with a touch over 500hp within 2 weeks of having the motor in the car and i hadn't even put slicks on it or launched it hard from a dead stop yet, after i pulled the rear cover it looked like metal soup. after i convinced my wife i needed to shell out some more loot for a rear i got this one

delivered to a local parcel service in my area, and for me to pick it up there it cost me just shy of 3000.00, but i also had it built to handle a good 200hp more than i am putting too it, so i would have room for possible future plans
