Will mine break? Maybe someday. It lasted 4 years at 351wtq in a wrx before breaking the first time. It should last longer this time in a lighter vehicle. It's also no longer in a needed DD car, so if it breaks I park it and figure it out then.
340whp.... is nothing... You guys were claiming that the 5 speed was going to last forever because the car was so light and RWD...
. I know of a WRX with 160k miles that makes around that power on E85 and is still on the stock transmission with many trips to the track.
Just accept that they should have designed the car to use the 6-speed as well.
