wish someone would tell my gearbox that as syncros are done in 3rd 4th and 5th :Uzi: :Uzi: however i should change the oil and try that first :loser:My understanding is that the actual gear sets are as good as identical.
The RB26DETT revs higher and I think that does not help gearbox life also it has to drive 2 more wheels as well, I think that is why they seem to have more failures.
Now if you could get a manual box from a VQ30DETT I bet that is stronger due to that engines higher torque from the factory.
But GTS-T boxes are pretty dam strong imho, and you must either have a rare bad one or be running a whole heap of power for it to be an issue.
Changing the oil helps a lot.
