it will help but for the power im puting down and going to put down with the new turbo kit its not worth the time.  iv already started on the RWD conversion for it.  im gona adapt a turbo 350 GM trany to the zx2 motor.  i just picked up my gt35r turbo, 44mm wast gate and new intercooler so im going for 600+ hp and 9's on boost.

To me the zx2 is one of the best cars for what ever you want to do to a car.  it looks good. it rails.  you can make them very fast.  you can do what ever you want to them and they wont look to bad.  o and they are not hondas.  as of yet i havent hurd of anyone that has done a rwd conversion on using a zetec motor in a zx2.  i hope im the first.  if not i will be the fastest regardless haha.  thankx guys

Correct.  Not with a Zetec motor.

I am interested to see how that goes for you. I have been talking to a company out of Europe about our trani's and they are looking into helping us. It's a slim shot on a slippery slope but if it pans out... it will be worth it.

best of luck to you on that.  Unless they put a diffrent trany in our cars we are stuck. the cases flex too much and the gears arnt even close to being strong enough. the cut of the gears is not strong at all.  stright cut gears would be the only way to go and how anyone could pull that off would be phuckin great.

Shouldn't we also look into material? If the material that the gears are built with are strong wouldn't that help? (Thus a newb ventures into the world of transmission construction.)

So how much can these stock transmissions take semi-reliably?

Same question here. I know this is out of place but Kicker, what kind of rims are those that you use when your not drag racing, and what size are they? Im out of placce because I know that I wont be turboing anytime soon. Hey have you tried Gude before?

on an open diff a stock trany can take up to around 185 whp b4 you have diff problems  if you weld the diff (not lsd) you can go just over 300.

as for my street rims  im not sure but ill look when i get to my shop and tell ya  as for gude iv been working with them for 5 years now no new stuff as per head and turbo cam/ nitrous cam ideas.  Bill Gude has done alot for me.  he is a good guy and their head and cam packages are second to none.  iv gone 13s on a stock bottom end n/a with their head package no weight reductions.  i also made 202whp N/A with a custom cam grind he did for me. and that was on a stock bottom end too.

no offence Kicker... but you are the first guy that has ever said they liked gude equipment. Don't get me wrong I have never tried any of there stuff, it is just an observation. As far as the trani... we will see.

ask anyone who has actuly used gude and see what they say as far as heads and cams  the turbo kits are great for guys just getting started.  but their heads and cams are the best essy can suck it easy iv used their cams and heads and it sucks.  i had a stage 2 package and only made 145 whp  i sold it 2 days later and put on a gude and made 170. and the head package was from a guy back east who for some reason only got 135 whp out of it.  haha the timing was off he didnt know how to do it. haha dumbass.  thats where people go wrong with the head packages  the timing is wrong and they lose power or the car doesnt run right.  this goes for essy too  iv had many people with both heads call me with the same problems.  i helped them get the timing right and everyone was happy.  the major problem gude had is customer service.  iv herd alot of bad things about that but their stuff is always good.
