I am using a fairly well built EFI 351w in front of a stock T5. I need a transmission that will be able to take a bit more power. The T5 is on its way out and I need some opinions on what to replace it with. I really don't care too much if its a manual or auto trans either. I was thinking about a c4 swap but I don't know how well that would work on the highway seeing as it only has 3 speeds. I would like a tko500 but that is well out of my price range. any thoughts or opinions?

I switched to a C-4 if you drive alot of hwy then go Lentech. That is if you want a trans that will hold.

I bought a new Tremec Z-class T5 for $1500. They are suppose to be good up to around 450hp. I don't do much track time so that is good enough for me.

The only thing bad with the Tremecs are that they need new bellhousings and crossmembers so that adds to the price but they also offer stronger casings which limit the T5 to how strong you can make it.

I see you feel very strongly towards your transmission....well good for you:rollgrin:!!! I just happen to have a tremec when I bought the car and it should be enough for (hopefully).
