If you can fit the N/A rx7 tranny, you can fit the turbo RX7 tranny. Mounting and connections are virtually identical. Go to it boy.

P.S. The t2 trannys are reputed to hold 650rwhp on a rotary. That enough for you Faefae? 550 rwhp is a known, there's at least 2 guys I know of reporting (non-drag) 650rwhp holding on theirs.

And a decent scooter can make over 350rwhp. I've also had to replace a few in buddies cars after trying to find a source for parts, let alone upgrades. One with a dead 3rd gear, and another with a dead 5th. Parts for the American transmissions can be found in any auto parts catalog, and upgrades are in any Jegs or Summit.

No on the glide- Auto will make his boring car even more boring. Nothing like running single digit times while holding a cup of coffee. After the launch its just like your just driving to the grocery store.

The only way a T5 will hold big power is with an aftermarket gear set, and by the time you buy everything and have the trans built, you might as well quit messing around and buy a big boy trans. Built T5s are great when you're dropping them into places that they just drop into. If there's fab work involved, it seems really silly to use a built T5 when an off the shelf trans would cost you the same amount of money and take the same amount of effort, and a spare trans is just a phone call to D&D/ REV/ trans shop of choice away.

That said, if I can come up with a spare Turbo2/ FD trans to take measurements off of, I really will make adapter plates.

See post #2589

Please do not look for a BEGI solution. That will only prolong this carnival another 4 years.

Eventually, after you've thrown enough money at it, you'll get it to work. For a little while at least. lol

I agree that you should just take it to the dyno and do a 5th gear pull. See wtf kind of power it's making and then you'll know your options. Bro.

Second on the Getrag 265. I had it on a Turbo BMW 535 (Alpina B7 Turbo) and it handled 600nm / 360hp for over 150K miles. Some guys over at the E28 forum run them at over 600hp.

And it's cheap and shifts nicely. How to make it fit I dunno....

Why deny the bellhousing exists to bolt half a dozen real transmissions to your engine? You can't break most of them.

They are all baller and will all be more than $1000 new. Perhaps you can find something gently used for cheap. yellowbullet.com?

generally straight cut gear and/or dog boxes (square lugs replace syncronizers) will be less money and stronger at the expense of noise and poor streetability.

"For use with miata OE clutches"??? with a disc that matches the trans input shaft.......

A PPF/rear diff support, shifter location, driveshaft, speedo cable, crossmember solution will need to be created. None exist to my knowledge except for maybe the Martin/Monster Miata for the T5's and V8R/FM for the T56 if the trans happens to be in the same spot as the appropriate V8 in those kits. And umm...those aren't cheap either. I don't know if the T5 or T56 would work with that quicktime bellhousing...I think it would. If not I am sure they will make you one that does for the same price if you call and ask nicely. So yeah that's why no one vocal is using it when the Grade A players here are fine with the 6speed.

Honestly that's what I would do. Quickest & easiest by far. Maybe develop some mechanical empathy.

Either get a supply of 6 speeds or if you aren't going to go ***** out for a TKO setup then you could try these. . . I didn't say they were cheap though. Never heard of these guys either.
