As the title says, surely they can't be standard and i can't find any uprated gearbox items out there for our cars.

cheers

i haven't seen any reports of the tranny ever failing under high horsepower. There are some v8 projects in the works that use the e153 box so I bet there will be some broken trannys in the future. The CV joints seem to fail every once in a while though. you can get upgraded ones from ATS.

yeah i was planning on doing the drive shaft bearing carriers as a safe guard anyway.

Thought the sycho's were a weak point on these boxes as well?

So all your saying is driveshaft bearing carriers, and just the box overhauled to standard spec

the synchros are weak on the 91-92 trannies i beilieve only a single or double on 1st, whereas the 93 box had beefier triple cone syncrhos on 1-3rd iirc. not sure about upgrading just the internals or if you need the whole 93+box.
