How weak is a Turbo 400??

I ran into an article in a magazine claiming the Turbo 400 has a weakness related to the gears.

Basically, it said the heli-cut gears used could destroy the Turbo 400 under servere load/power.

The fix was replacing the heli-cut gears with some factory available straight-cut gears(cost approximately $1000 from factory)

Has anyone heard of this? How durable is a Turbo 400?

I'm a bit curious on this as I've always heard the Turbo 400 is the beefiest auto
