The noise of SC Gears comes largely from the tooth contact ratio and with straight cut gears, being what they are, there's little that can be done to increase this ratio. Typically Straight Cuts are 1:1, but with some detailed work, can get up to 1.1:1. As far as I know, that's the limit with them, Automotive or otherwise.

Helicals by comparison run a contact ratio of usually between 1.8:1 up to about 3:1.

These figures are nothing to do with the actual gear ratios.

The other point with our gears that has a hand on the volume control is the machining quality of the cases and how well aligned the shafts are as well as the depth of tooth contact. Changing the depth here has HUGE effects on the pressure angle of the tooth and the noise they make.

Peter , clearly Oxford is expanding as fast as Banbury given its only 8 miles between the two places now on your map?

If I was doing this build, I'd use a close ratio helical kit. Would never consider S/C gears for a road car.
