The only Saginaw gears I know of being re-popped are the 3speed input/clusters that all the short track guys use. As far as the Muncie stuff; its very hard to compete with the junk from India. Theres no way visually to convince most guys that a quality gear made in Italy is worth 20percent over the same visually appearing gear made in India or China. All Trans in Portland (now Transtar) seems to have a consistent product for an M20 with say a 350hp SBC in a street car (not a 10second street car, a REAL street car). If you want quality Muncie gears, you have to go to a M22 or M22Wide. The reason is that the lions share of performance guys have more than 400hp and require the strength the M22 platform provides. ADDITIONALLY; the worst part of a Muncie is the flyweight aluminum/potmetal case. A person really needs to evaluate their Aluminum case before investing in a quality gearset. A worn out case eats gears.
