i'd deffinatley switch out from that t5. it's basically just a box full of parts that don't hold up to much power or abuse

thats true. if you are or want to make power then you should steer clear of the t-5. some people have good luck with them but they are few. look into getting the tremec 3550, you can usually find them for a pretty good price with everything you need. the difference in parts from the t-5 is the bellhousing and shifter, although you will have to modify the tranny crossmember. it's definatly worth it as opposed to going through t-5 after t-5.

and if you got the $$$ and want big power get a TKO600
