Went with a new Sequential Gear Box for my Fd

Some of you guys may know, but for the past couple years I've had a thorn in my side that just kept on digging in every time I hit the track with my car. I tried different clutch set ups, and even different driving styles but at the end of the day... It was time to pick an alternative gear box for my Fd. My final kill sheet was a total of (9) Fd3s OEM 5 Speed Gear Boxes. 2 of those being J-spec Boxes. And I'd like to dispell the rumor that they are stronger than FD Boxes. Because they aren't. They feel nicer...but in my opinion that has more to do with Mileage than anything else. Both of the ones I had were in fact lower mileage.
So I sat down with a couple Mentors of mine and crunched some numbers for Gearing...power and wheel speed.. and ended with a few gearing ratio ranges that would level the "Displacement" Playing field vs all these V8's and inline 6 engines.

And Ordered an HGT 5-Speed Sequential Gear Box

I'm Pumped. Going to be posting a Series of Videos on Youtube going over the choice, features, and install of the Box.
you guys can follow me on Instagram @Aaparkah.300 for picture Updates or on here in the Build thread section for more in depth content! Thanks Guys!!
