Default Dog Box in Phoenix area?

Hey everyone! I am going to be forced into a new tranny in a couple days here since mine didn't like me, and I know it would be wise for me to buy a dogbox or go 6spd. The car will mostly be used for drag racing and there is never enough power so my research says that a 5sp ppg dogbox is what I need to handle the power(and better ratios.) However, I have never driven or been in a dogbox equipped vehicle and was wondering if any locals might be willing to give me the dogbox experience as well as any advice on ppg vs 6spd. I'm around 7th st and bell so please pm me or reply here if you can help. Thanks!

ppg != dogbox

How much power are you making?

Methinks more research would do you well.

^^^^i think he was saying that he was going to get the ppg dogbox or the 6speed. and he just wants a ride in the dogbox to make sure it isnt a pain in the ass to drive i would guess

Well, he could go the much cheaper route and put PPG gears into a 5MT... that's where I was going w/ it.

I don't know of any dogboxes locally but I don't think anyone has broken a set of PPGs or the 6mt yet. I'm sure it has been done, but my point is that it is very rare/both are VERY strong. That being said, as intercoolerontop said, a 5 speed would prolly be the way to go for drag.

If you are REALLY into low 1/4 mile times, get a V8.

So how is 5k much cheaper than a 6mt. I know they are more expensive than that new, but a lightly used one is a bit cheaper than that.

... wow, I stand corrected. I guess I had PPG gearsets as on the cheap side in my head... You guys would probably know a lot better than me, seeing as I've never even looked into it.

Sorry, OP. I guess I gave bad advice.
