When the car was running 572/540, did you have any issues with the transmission or anything else. What else did you strengthen to cope with the power?

I did, but not for strength reasons. The X transfer box gearbox and diff seem to cope well. Could probably take more.

I changed the OEM GSR diff for an RS diff, not for strength, but for track work, to get rid of the extra weight and to lose the AYC for track use. The transfer box had a whine in it ages ago, but the bearings were changed before the build last time, it's great now. That was because I abuse it I reckon LOL. I have been using both a Samsonas dog box and a OEM 5 speed manual with a diff pin upgrade. The manual is great with one exception, too big a jump from 4th to 5th on a car like this. The OEM box has taken everything I can throw at it. Great box IMO.

Hope that helps.

Unfortunately, there has been a delay in this build, we are waiting for two things before it can continue.

Waiting for the Tomei Cams to be made in Japan and to be shipped to the UK via the USA. Also waiting for the Samsonas sequential dogbox to be rebuilt. Waiting on parts arrival from Samsonas.

I will be back when we get some news.

Having them built correctly always helps!

I should have said, having them built by the guru of Transmissions (CliveW) helps no end.
