Default Transmission - 5spd new vs 6spd 100k/km

Hey,

My 5spd broke...
I get can a new 5spd and a 6spd (100k km) at the same price.

Which should I take ?

I run 200wbhp I thought about maxing out at 250~

Thanks !

I would go for the 6 speed. Although would need to change the final diff ratio probably.

haha true that, though to be honest I'd probably stay with the 5 at near stock power levels and daily driver use since its smoother and lighter.

Thats true, i just drove an NB with a 6 speed, it wasnt quite as smooth as mine, but i could put up with it if i can get my hands on one. Im trying to convince him to trade me, since he wouldnt stop talking about how smooth my car drove. Just waiting for an answer. haha

I just traded a friend my 5 speed + cash for his 5 speed. I'm swapping it on Monday, however, I have limited experience driving 6 speeds so I hope it isn't too terrible (drove his car before to confirm its function).

They arent terrible... just not as smooth. They are definitely BEARable though, especially for the added strength, longevity, and fuel mileage (depending on final ratio)

OP, another 6-speed vote. After all, you've already proven you can break a 5-speed.

With my N/A built I think it'll be much better at the track with the 4.10 not really worried about fuel economy.
