So you're planning to track 325rwhp?

Have you researched what it takes to track 325rwhp?

The $600-1000 that you're going to spend on a 6-speed (required) is going to be a drop in the bucket, my friend.

I shoved my tranny into third, she didn't like the abuse.

I would recommend the 6 speed if you have both side by side and no $ is involved.
