:? YES. Im new to the site so im gona start posting where i will do the most viewing.  For those of you who dont know me Im kickerzx2.  always have been always will be.  i have been racing zx2's sence 99 and building them sence 00. I have 5 ZX2s ranging from slow as hell to one of, if not, the fastest street driven zx2 in america.  My fast car is a 2000 turboed z running 24.5 psi right now but im getting rid of that kit and making a new one and using a GT35R. it made 380 whp and broke the trany on the dyno so im junking the zx2 trany and probably gona make a TH350 adapter and go RWD.  but my vega comes first before that undertaking.  n e ways just wanted to say hi.

Nice, 300hp is my goal.  It's great to see you made it.  I just gives me more confidence.

best of luck to you id be happy to help you in any way i can  let me just worn you that 300whp you WILL be breaking tranies. if you weld the diff or get a good possi (not lsd) you will break 3rd and 4th gears.  with lsd you will break sinkros and shift forks.   iv broken 19 trannies now.  iv tried everything.

Perhaps this is another project for Jayco?

iv been talking to him about this for some time now.  but i have went many steps further then just him.   The Mazda sponcered race team  used to use these tranies about 4 years ago.  I got ahold of their trany guy through the ralley zx2 i sponcered and we talked.  with compleetly building the tanny including making a new case  and braces and all new forged gears stright cut setup's as well they still failed at 425 hp.  they spent 10k on a trany that lived for 2 passes on one of their cars.  they just dont live.

Kicker great to see you here bro. I was woundering I you tride cry'oing the trani? I was thinking of using Escape shift forks, and syncro's combined with ZX2 gearing. Then cry'O the Dambed thing and praying it holds up. What do you think...
