my gears are literally shredded. and i mean shredded. got my car back from the shop on a friday after they had my tranny out and opened up, and then on wed it happened. my car was driving completely fine and not making any noise at all and shifting great.. and the first time i get on it pretty good my gears just got ripped apart.. wtf happened? now i need a new trans.. idk if i should go 5 or 6 speed again.. but i need too build the tranny the best i can and get some gears.. WTH happened? anyone have any suggestions on gears i should run? i have a fully built 24v vr6 turbo its punched out too a 3.1 and also has a garret to4s turbo. it dynoed at 460whp. idk anything about gears and stuff someone help me out. already know its going to be very costly

Gear sets for the 02M are gonna be pricey!

Honestly I would stay with an 02M and not go for a 5spd... Pretty sure the 02M is the strongest trans they make...
I cant remeber who makes gear sets for our trans, but I have seen em somewhere before.. for some reason HPA and Autotech are in my head...

I replied to your other thread already, but will in this one too. It sounds like somebody likes to powershift, or somebody doesn't know how to drive stick. The 6spds are darn near indestructable. Stop dropping gears while hammering on it.

i dont get it.... the trans broke after a shop removed it and took it apart and then reinstalled it?

Now they want you to put a 5-speed in it? Something doesn't sound right here.

yea they do. they always do good work... always sick cars with high hp coming out of it too.. it just blows my mind that my tranny was just fine and even at the shop opened up so they could see everything.. and all the sudden my gears are just completely shredded
