Slightly off topic, but does anyone (non-STI's) worry about killing transmissions with torque that high (300+)? Is there a thread someone can refer me to that talks about tranny risk?

I would say the majority of us WRX owners with over 300wtq have gears. Over 300whp, well, thats a different story

I have recently moved up to stage II with a 3 inch turbo back and an XPT Stage II map and I worry about 3rd gear. I'm not launching or banging gears, but there are so many threads about this issue that one can't help but worry a bit.

Man I was Stage II for 40k miles with no probs. Dont drive like a jackass and you will be ok.

I have been Stage 4 for like 8k now and still running strong with no grinding etc. *knocks on wood*

Jay is still stock gears with an SR55 and 2.5l swap. He needs to be saving for gears at any time, but its all in how you drive it bro.

Focus on being smooth dude. If you're smooth, you have no issues.

(Been Stage 2 for ~22k no problems with a 2006) Smooth is fast.

I'm smooth (that sounds a bit vein). I'm no rookie when it comes to driving and I have a firm understanding of what makes a car work and not work. I just can't help but worry a bit. Thanks for the encouragement.
