caxton, Thanx m8, i will do. Theres alot of V.useful information on here wil be abused :tongue:
davio, not cheap then. but they are all wear and tear items so they have to be done and always at a cost. Do you always take yours to a main dealer to get the work done? Is yours modified in any way or is it totally standard?

So far i have found lots of v.useful info on this site. One thing though how strong are the standard gearboxes, ive had afew 4wd cars n the boxes giv up abt 350hp :( and due to the gearbox design asin the engine is transverse and the T-box is pretty much slaped onto the side of the box, will it handle alot of power?
Turboing is a must n proberly pistons,rods n shells. Also looking into converting the box to sequential but that all depends on how much power it takes and if there are and dog gear sets available :confused:
I want it to be a sleeper preferably :xD
Its all nice dreaming i suppose
