Building A Tranny

I'm going to start to build up an S5 tranny. Though it may seem impossible, I am hoping to build a S5 capable of with stand 1200hp and still be daily driven. So any ideas on how to achieve this goal? Should I buy a parts and pu it together or can I buy fully built trannies? If you guys know please post a link.

Thanks,
Alex

As far as LSD is concerned what do you guys think is better Kaaz 1.5 LSD or the mazda trix torsen LSD?

Start out with a FD tranny instead. A S5 TII tranny is good but the FD trans is way stronger.

Most drag set ups I've seen use S5 trannies.

Too bad they are basically the same thing.
I guess you're an FD owner...
