altho it will be better than the t5, they need to be kept cool as possible, and need the shift firmness turned up for starters, less slip between gears means les heat and less wear on the box, not aure about actually building them up to handle 650hp though, would probably be better off bolting in a c4 in my opinion,

AFAIK the EB V8 box is pretty much the most over engineered BTR around, I have also read that the EF/EL/AU pump is pretty much ideally suited for the BTR.

If I had to (and the money to), I would get an AU six box, get it rebuilt using the V8 box parts and using kevlar bands and clutch plates, run a big fat cooler and a CAPA alloy finned pan and use an aftermarket transmission controller.

Of course the C4 is always a reliably strong option, it depends on what it is you want to do with the car really.
