What's the problem with the tranny in the MK3s that nobody uses them for any swap? Do they not bolt up or is it that bad of a transmission?

It only bolts to the 1zz and 2zz.

And made of chewing gum internals over 300bhp they go pop.

Sometimes below that! :lol: Chocolate shaft bearings don't help, but MWR do make an upgraded gear set or 2 for the box now. Not cheap though, only really for cheque book tuners! Bearing in mind that they were never really designed to work with vast torque figures, its not surprising I guess. The 1zz only has around 123 lbft torque in stock trim. Some of the turbos are producing double that.

I figured that would be the problem.
