The case of the 5 speed is also a super weak link of its design.

The USDM STI with overdrive isn't bad, i like the JDM 6 speed a little better if your not highway driving all day. I don't like running the dccd center diff open though, the bind clunk gets annoying.

I was pulling bits out of my rear diff and I had a whine in my tranny by the time I did the rebuild on my LGT
