1) Take T5 box
2) Throw it in the bin
3) Fit T56 and be happy :)

^^^^ indeed.

The T5 is a great box for a NA 6, more grunt than that and she'll be testing the limits, especially 3rd gear.

Alot of the V8 and turbo blokes that are putting more than stockish grunt into em are picking up the pieces.

A t56 or TKO600 are the best alternatives if you wanna keep the manual.
