The Money your going to spend on turning it into a G-force, you'd be better of getting a T56.

The T5 casing is a major weak point, they flex. the larger bearings and counter gear help yes, but at a cost.

I dont know anyone that would do this in aust, perhaps Malwoods.

That is BI6TIM's car, well, was BI6TIM's. He actually killed a few T5"G" Box's at PowerCruise 19. For the cost of doing it, and still having a box that is going to break, get a T56.
