Yeah I saw that, I still think that the Rx7 Turbo II FC/FD 5 speed is stronger than the starion transmission. Besides, if you are serious about performance weight reduction is a given. I know my car is at least 100 lbs lighter than stock and I still have a few things to eliminate. Pretty sure you can break anything if you try hard enough. plus you can use the SQ flywheel/clutch with a Rx7 TOB. And, a higher O/D gear will yield savings in mileage and wear on the engine.
Besides I don't plan on making more than 400-425 hp.
