Simple question guys -
Are Watson's final drives genuinely too noisy, or not too bad ?

I had the same worry and as such didn't want to risk it so bought an M-Factory one. I bought it from H-Tune and considering the exchange rate it was cheaper than ordering it direct from M-Factory in the US.

I'd have preferred a 3.7 but they only do a 3.4 so I went with that and a light flywheel.

Yeah same here. I reckon the 3.7 is the best ratio overall

Well done Shaun.
Just had a read, and it seems most people are happy with the whine, which does seem to be only on the overrun.
Am just worried it'd sound like a straight cut 'box, which wouldn't make me happy at all ...
