Update On Manual Transmission

Recommended Posts

So fellas....do we have any update ( i mean facts ) that the is300 tranny is weak ? The only thing thats holding me back to get this car is the tranny. I now own 300zx and I dont need another car that cost too much to maintain. : :D Thanks fellas

What do you mean by weak? Some people have had some shifting problems, and you can tear the trans and clutch up by racing a lot or boosting too much. Overall though I think it's ok.

I asked because i read some of the earlier post and some people stated that their tranny wouldnt last pass 30k. is it because they are pushing it over 300hp. I do believe that stock motor ... the tranny will hold up pretty well. Plus i dont smash my gears all day long. I hardly even gun it.

So all ya'll saying that the IS300 tranny cannot hold anymore horsepower than stock???? You have to be kidding me. The SC300 has the same motor and the stock tranny can hold up to around 500 hp. Please someone tell me, how much hp can the stcok tranny hold??

I've read some post on swtching trans on another forum. Most people don't think it's worth it. It might be if you were going to build like a monster 500 HP car, but probably not worth the cost and effort on a daily driver.
