Subarubrat was(may still be) running a DR 4 speed in his ER27 brat.. 240-250hp. Nuked one tranny so far that I know of.
he's running fat feet isn't he? stock'ish diameter wheels wouldn't put as much stress on the gearbox, would it?

i got to find out just what ej it is yet, i was told its a 2.4L so i figger it's either a 2.2 or 2.5 . gearbox should be coming with it but again i don't know if its manual or auto. but hey its cheap as so i thought why not i can always sell the ej trans if i don't want it
Are you planning on modifying the ej? They are not that powerful stock, so the box would probably be ok untill you mod it...
as long as it cranks 130hp or more i can live with it stock.......for awhile:brow:
