    I hear LS thats what I am going to use with a quaiffe differential. Some swear by gsr trannies, if you have the $ Iw oudl try both, if not use ls.

    gsr keeps you in the power band better.

    read in our article section about mph per gear. on an ls, you will be doing 80 mph in 2nd gear, 130 in 3rd on an 8000 rpm motor - thats just too long

    thats a little too close. you will have a lot of power and simply backe 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears with out moving 10 feet =)

    gsr is the best compromise

    It depends on the turbo and what you are going to do with the car. It's a tough question.

    the gsr is the tranny for the 1/4. no if's about it.
    if yo are a highway racer, the LS is for you.
