I stand corrected. You did email me back. It was in my junk mail for some reason.

6speed swap is a pain....go ppg straight cuts 1-4....dont listen to the rude guys they expect you to spend hours googling stuff rather than answering a simple question. No matter how many 6speed videos they post ppg 5speed is better in my opinion...cheaper...easier. Tall 1st. I can do 140+ on stock tires without revving to 9200rpms....just my two cents

legacy 5 speed might be a good idea for you and I have one for sale shortly if interested I have 6 speed on the way and will be removing mine... Using the spec b 5th and 6th gear in the 6 seed would have been your best bet for strength and strength...I guess you could get custom ppg gearing that would be tough and to your liking but I figure that is quite pricey.

140 is top speed for 6 speed i hope that is not true and need to look before installing? Jesus top speed in my supras 6 speed is over 200 and if you raise rev limit and use right tires you can get upper 250's..I figured at least 150-160 was top end for sti

His car isn't a 1320 car, it's an autoX car. If he had the longer gear 6spd, it would have been better. He had a '06 6spd; short 1-4.

I forgot, Chris, what's the engine setup on this car again? What turbo? This would help so i could recommend the right gearing to suit the power band.

2.5 hybrid. heads combustion chambers were ported to match 2.5 specs. Currently it has a rotated 35r. im trying to sell that to go to a smaller sized turbo with a faster spool. Something like the 68hta i used to have maybe just a tad bit bigger.

Anything special done to the heads at all? Upgraded springs?

A 450WHP autocross car will blow up most 5 speeds, even with aftermarket gearsets. Motorsports dog box maybe, but that will probably cost $6k+ to do right, which is around the same price you'll pay for a 6 speed plus buying a synchro gearset you want.

You say this is an autocross car, but you have a 35r with no AVCS? I guess it's not a very competitive autocross car then, so just what is it you are trying to get out of your transmission? Really tall gearing for MPGs? A specific gear for autocross? Seems like for that kind of turbo with no AVCS, a 7k redline is severely limiting you (which is why Fuji is asking questions on that, you can fix some of your gearing issues by being able to run an 8k redline.)

Hence the fact of me getting rid of the turbo. I built this set up when I was young and dumb and was just concerned about power. Did an autocross event last year and now im hooked so im trying to get it set up more for that. The heads have 272 cams with different springs and retainers. Not sure what brand anymore. It was a while ago. also has all new supertech valves. stock size.
