Default transmission question

if one were to have a 306 producing 450-500 BHP what tranny would you guys suggest. It's a t-5 now.

would you put in a c6 and a stall and call it a day, or keep it a manual somehow?

people always ask how much a t-5 will handle, you know what i say? "how good of a driver are you"

i'm not a fan of the tko i personaly think that they are too notchy going into gear which causes slow shifts in MOST cases

i thought a t-5 would only be good for about 400 ft/lbs of toruqe.

which models of the g-force or TKO would I be looking for?

if i knew anything about them i would, but i don't feel the need for one since i've seen a stock one hole a mid 10 sec. car... if i reach the point of needinga new tranny i'll be geting a t-56 instead of a tko
