Full solid hub is not really necessary on the 6 speed unless you race a lot. I had no issues holding the power with a Spec Stage 4 6 puck sprung, but anything more than 500whp and you ought to go a little more aggressive. The 6 speed swap isn't cheap, but it is an amazing parts bin solution to the fragile 5 speed. The compromise is there, for sure. But it certainly seemed like I was breaking every transmission I put in after the first 1. My first p11 trans lasted years, but once I got over 400wtq they started breaking left and right.

Lynch's VE-T Going 6spd
Nice keeping my 5 Spd I heard those 1st gears are pretty much useless
2015-02-28 19:57:53
well, first gear in alot of our turbo cars is "useless"... i'd rather stop breaking transmissions AND get better mpg..

i've cracked 2 bellhousings (ya from wheel hop but still) i've got 5th pop out twice and i've sheered 3rd gear off once but im sure its only a matter of time before it happens again.. im running low on parts transmissions so i can only keep fixing these things for so long before im fucked again lol.

by the math I did, 1st and 2nd are longer compared to 5 speed.... just 3rd-5th are slightly shorter

hey man more power to you im also battling wheel hop my self I converted to the b15 trans mount I also installed some ksport coil overs cause the megan springs with the kyb were not enough but my street tires are alos a cause I know that so also getting slicks when comes track time but my ve is getting turboed out this year so I wann see how itll hold up to some serious HP its taken 2 years of some serious track and regular abuse including some serious wheel hop from like 2 years ago that six spd gets me thinking though
