Default what are my transmission options, something to hold 400-450 foot lbs

currently i have been building my 2.35 liter ej22 and turbo set up. i want to know my options as far as transmissions go. there are many dog boxes that will suit my needs. i am looking to do somthing different. can i use a rally type of transmission where i dont need to use the clutch or have an assisted clutch slave. what type of transmissions are used in the rally cars. i know that there are many different rally car classes and regulations, but i want to know my options. i dont want to use a dog box, so i need to know whats out there. thanks

Since you've stroked out the engine I assume you're not rallying the car since it's not going to fit within the 2.0l limit. Dog boxes with straight cut gears are all fine and dandy but they're not the most fun thing to drive. If you ever drive your car in traffic then you should reconsider. I believe that an STi 6 speed would be able to handle it.

How can you say that the guy will love the MRT dog box if you've never seen/driven one? Straight cut gears are very noisy. So are dog box shifts. They don't call them crash boxes for nothing. Forget about your girlfriend/wife/nonenthusiast partner driving the car.

I'm fortunate to have a woman who appreciates a performance automobile. She sold her Civic and bought a '99 2.5RS. So yes, she drives my car too. It's funny when she comes home and talks about cooking a transmarobird mulletmobile or the odd mustang 5.0 on the way home.

Simple truth of the matter is. It's like putting a road racing suspension in your car. "I can live with this" you think as you put up with your bones being jarred everywhere you drive. Then you get into a stock car and can't believe how comfy it is. You're left answering the question, was your mod really that easy to live with? Although I have 225/180 springs and DMS-50's it is on the harsh side.

I also drove a copper 5 puck racing clutch for a while. It was very unpleasant and I hated driving in traffic. I even hated every stop sign and everyone around me wondered if I could in fact drive a standard. The car would not take off smoothly from any stop.

Put in that dog box and it may be an expensive way to learn how pleasant helical gears and synchros actually are. All this falls to one side if you're actually building a racecar that won't be driven on the street but I'm betting this isn't the case.
