That's a lot of money for an extra ratio.

From a dollar vs performance aspect, is it really worth the cash?

hmmm very expensive hobby this is...
its either the t56 or a v160/v161 from a supra..
i would deffinatly like a 6 speed im going from auto to manual so i mite as well go all out.
at this stage looks like the supra box will be a bit cheaper

Clampy is qualified to answer this. His EL XR8 has a 6 speed.

It is a lot of money for an extra ratio, but its a helluva lot stronger than a T5. Plus it allows you to run 4.11 diff gears and still sit on less revs on the highway than with a 3.23.
You would only bother with a box like this if you are after something to hold a lot of power and not snap.
