agreed. id rather make power by running more boost rather than running agressive timing.

also, what are you gonna do when this transmission dies a horrible death?

Here's a quick video of me running through the gears.


It takes 4.42seconds to go from 50-100mph according to the video.

sell the car with a blown trans? How much do you think your car would be worth with a blown trans?

I think the simple fact that the car has lasted as long as it has without destroying gears really is a HUGE testimate to how much better the stock WRX gearing is now over the 02-07 models. Be honest though xluben how often do you see WOT (daily?), how hard do you shift through the gears (I'd imagine from the video quickly, but doesn't look like you are slamming it), how long do you expect it to last.

When I first tuned mine on e85 I was worried that 360wtq was going to take my trans down, but it has been going strong now for about 4 months with it. Without a doubt I drive my car fairly hard, I don't abuse it, but it does seem hard corners, WOT, and redline just about daily. I'd love for your prime example of an 08+ wrx gearset really proving all of the buzz about how it's "supposedly stronger" then its predecessors gearset.

My commute to work is less than 10 miles each way, so it generally doesn't see that much WOT. Maybe a few times each day, but there are a lot of days I don't go WOT at all. Of course there are some days where I go WOT a lot more and also bang through the gears. In the video I'm FFS'ing, so it is pretty rough on the tranny. I used to do that every once in a while, but I've pretty much held off on doing that since installing the 4 puck clutch.

I wonder if you swapped out the 20g with the slightly larger 1.5xtr what you would make?

Probably a hair more top end. They're quite similar.

Awesome. That's a lot of power for a 20GXTR. Must feel real good on the street. Congrats!

Because 5 Speed tranny's are known to break with even a modest amount of power.

spectacular.

You should toss more fuel at it and bring the timing past 30*, you'd be well into the 500s
