Why do want the 6 speed?

Is it so it will cope with future mods? So you can bung in a super low final drive and tighten up the first 3 gears and have the 5 and 6 overdriven?

Or just to say you've got a 6 speed?

Yeah, I think I remember xr8chic saying she got her t56 from Mal Wood.
It ain't cheap, but they handle a fair gob more power then the T5.

That's pretty much summed it up hey? Unless your going to wack a set of super low diff gears in and / or you going for SERIOUS power. The money you will spend on the T56 is a waste over a Tremec...
