Reply to "SUBARU 5 sp TRANSAXLE TOUGHNESS ?"

Bruce,

There is LOTS of info on the Subaru 5 MT tranny online.  Most guys will agree that it's safe to about 350 HP, even with hard launches and occasional track use.  6 speed is more robust, but is slightly larger also, with its built-in oil pump.  PPG and Subarugears each make r&r kits to beef the 5-speed up, with escalating costs to match.  Every source includes a caveat that no amount of toughening makes the tranny idiot-proof.  I quit serious shopping when I read that.
