Just leave the stock stuff on until you break something. The stock trans will hold up quite a while if you run nothing more sticky than a nitto dr and dont do lots of powershifting/speedshifting.

My Friend told me that powershifting will lower ur time by ALOT!! Sooo, I tried it while racing a Lightning. Beat the lightning, but in the second Race Broke my 3rd Gear, SECOND TIME powershifting. Sooo dont do it!!

I am also looking to buy a T56 or a TKO500. G/L :-)

I was talking to my buddy who works for unleashed tuning out of JAX. It is his car that i am getting ready to purchase. Cobra motor, Cobra R fuel pump, injectors, procharger, GIGANTIC front mount. The motor is in good shape, freshly put in by HP Motorsports out of JAX. The car is a 02 GT with tons of Cobra parts. But anyway, the problem lies with 3650, third gear is gone like usual. I wanted to know if I should go with the full 6 spd swap. I was told bell housing, specialty cut drive shaft, and what i dont know is whats the best way to go about the rear end. Or if anyone know where to find a "built" 3650. So far the only guys i have found is promotionpowertrain.com
