Default Which manual transmission for 450whp in 1320?

Hi all, if I am running 450whp, will the 2007 US Spec Manual Transmission be the best 6 speed to use in the 1320? I have a 2002 S202 and I find the gear ratio terrible for the 1320 now that I have increased whp. I have searched all over for this info and haven't found a definitive answer. Thanks!

5speeds in general would be better, especially with the high'ish revving ej207, but if not built they're brittle. You are looking for a my 07+ 6spd Sti tranny, they have the better ratios for drag racing.


edit, I'm not sure if on the newest sti tranny's have the same ratios, they might've changed them. I don't follow the new age stuff. Anyway, an 07' is what you're looking for, you can do the research from there.

07+ all have the same ratios in the trans. A built 5spd would be best, but at 450whp you might be able to get away with finishing in 4th gear if you can rev out past 7500rpm on a 6spd. If its not built to that level, then a built 5spd will let you ride out 4th gear a lot more.
