This is a good idea. I was waiting to see you do this and I am glad that you are thinking about it.
Have you checked to see how much the 6MT flexes compared to the 5MT? This is some-what of an important number for me to see to gauge how weak the 5MT case really is.
My next question comes to heat/cooling... Do the braces interfere with heat dissipation of the trans? Is the heat even creating any problem on gear failures? Would adding an external cooler help to get any more life out of the gears?
