    So the transmission in my girls Delsol Si is shitting out on me, I have a DX trans I was going to swap in for the meen time when I would be rebuilding it.

    any suggestions on what to look for first the gear or teh syncro sleves? Ive rebuilt a few tans before, but that wat to either just take them appart to learn or drop an LSD into it, never had to repair one before, any suggestions on parts would be welcome aswel. were building hger motor for 300+ hp so the trans needs to be stout, im thinking cryo treaded syncro's

    not too many...i have the same problems with my sol... too much power:D
    so we have to just keep an extra tranny around so incase it blows we have a replacement. that and we are having custom fab work done on it. the fifth gear under full throttle at 100mph shredded like it was made of paper. so we had a machine shop in cali build us up a strengthened gear setup. but with too much power you can expect some breakage. with 300 ponies to the ground you have to treat things nicely or they will shit out on you.
