    Hey!
    What oem gearboxes are strongest?
    BMW is well known for strong manual transmissions.
    Supra have R154, V160 / 161
    Nissan 350z, not from 2003
    Mazda rx8


    What other powerful and affordable oem gearboxes are there on the market?


    Advantages and disadvantages?

    Mazda rx8 is nearly the same box as an s15, nc mx5 and s2000 etc. I.e not strong, lol.

    I think he means the 5 speed box not the 6 speed bud.

    i think the z33 gets my vote. R154 didn't last 5 mins.

    300ZX turbo boxes are quite beefy. I could comfortably lift an SR20 transmission by myself but a Z32 weighs a fucking ton. The gearset is enormous compared to an SR box as well.

    It's hard to beat a Magnum box for ultimate strength though. They are rated by Tremec to 700lbft from the factory which probably has a safety factor of 20% in there on top. Came in the Mustang and a number other 'murican cars.

    They cost a fortune though and generally need to be imported.

    On what car can i find the Z33 gearbox?

    Torque
    Capacity?

    Cheap or expensive?

    Any more gearboxes that is strong?

    People seem to have very different perceptions of R154 is strong or not.

    I understand that T56 super magnum is strong. But if you dont have $ 4,516 to spend.
    What other options are there?

    Is z32 and z33 same kind of gearboxes?

    From what cars can i find them?

    GTR gearbox converted to RWD work well. Need to be strong enough to handle a 26 going through 4 wheels.

    Depends where in the world you are as to whether they are cheap or not. And need the prop flange too.
