Too bad it's in Ontario. :-(
I asked the seller for a shipping estimate though. We'll see.

i dont get whats soo special about a 6 speed. All ive heard about them is that you have to shift more than the 5 speed and on the highway your revs are higher. Is there something I'm missing here?

How strong is a typical 1.6 5 speed trans? Is it common to break one with 200hp?

I think the 5 speed will handle what, 270ish before you have to worry about it?

I think a lot of it depends on how you drive and what you're doing. Drag racing will kill it at 250ftlbs, but I've got a buddy who tracked his 300rwhp Miata for five years on the same trans and it's still going.

Ok good. I'm just tired of buying upgrades just to get my car ready for higher boost. The only weak part left on my car is the clutch. I need a clutch and fuel pump and I'm DONE.

Go for it, you probably won't find one closer.
The seller wants $200 to ship it to me

I would have thought the opposite is true. My Miata sits at about 4k rpms at 80mph, twice now I've gone searching for that 6th gear only to remember there wasn't one and it has to go back to fifth. But I guess the 6-speeds could be geared in such a way that 6th isn't much higher than the 5th we have now. Is this true?
