Default Half/Full Doxbox tranny?

I'm planning on putting an STi engine in my L within a month or two. Shortly thereafter (as soon as I can come up with another $3200), I know I'll have to upgrade my tranny, and I was leaning heavily toward a half-dogbox setup, as I want to do a little drag racing and autoxing on the side (mainly drag racing).

What advantages and disadvantages are there to a dogbox tranny? I want something as reliable as possible, as I drive about 500 miles/week, and motorsports are just a side issue. I want this tranny to last at least 3 years, and I'm planning on running at about 300 hp. Are there any other viable options to a dogbox upgrade as far as trannies are concerned?

Thanks for your help.

Mark

I was looking at getting a reinforced non dog box when i go turbo, just because I dont want to dread shifting gears in my car. I know a company that MIGHT make me some titanium synchros and gears...I am hoping .

Help me out here, blindeye, why would you "dread" shifting with a dogbox? Is it really that much different than a normal tranny?

This is why I'm posting now, is to learn the facts before I acts

shifting doggies is no harder than a synced car. in fact it is prob easier to do . yes sometimes you will clang them but it will allways to into the next gear.

We upgrade transmissions to the dog gears. Full dog box is the best way to go. We don't offer half dog gears. Most likely you will have to upgrade to a full dog box.
