all the supercharger guys in dallas say 230whp or so is the limit. I don't know why people constantly break **** out here...and if I hear "turbo cars are unreliable" anymore I'm going to stab myself.

Here, I'll make you feel more comfortable, "I've had my car to rev limit in 5th gear on a public highway on multiple occasions."
With what rearend and how fast was that? A friend of mine was asking me what a miata tops out at the other day and I couldnt tell him. But I know for sure his Sky Redline will take it waaaay higher, lol.

Unless your power ambitions are high, get a 5 speed; you'll be happier with the ratios.
Freight is ~$50 thru DHL to an office.... it went to FL? from MI.

And my vote is: get a TII Rx-7 Trans and don't worry about anything.... + their cheap - mine was around 200

We top out where ever our redline and gears run out miatas are hp limited nothing else that being said mine hits 130+ pretty easily at 14 psi. And should go to 145-150 given the need to go there.
Dhark the T2 tranny swap is very labor intensive though i dont think most of us wanna go with that much work.

t2 = very labor intensive, someone needs to come out with a kit.
Quafie gearset = Too expensive, FM charges you up the butt
6 speed = Kind of expensive, plus need (want) new R&P.

There really isnt anything that is easy, and cheap to fix beside getting 5-6 transmission that can sit in your garage.

Does anyone know if the MS Axels will fit in a 96 Torsen II?

I'm still running a 4.30:1 r&p. I have a 4.10:1 rear I need to stuff into the car though.

How fast is that, I , you can do the math. With enough HP you can bury the speedo needle.

There is a good chance they will work together. The MS axels are suposed to be beefier from what i hear how much beefier is the question.
