Note: The poll is for what people think is best to use not necessarily what you used or are using.
So I know this has been discussed a bit before but I'm looking for some solid impressions and opinions.
I am doing my 3VZ V6 swap in the next few months (I already have the motor but this can apply to the 1MZ and 5VZ as well). What I want to know is what Transmission I should go with. I have both an E153 and a S54 I could use. I know/have studied the gearing ratios, have driven both NA and Turbo MR2's. I would like to know how both behave on V6's.
-Handles power pretty well
-No modifications to the axles and hubs for NA cars
-Gearing makes for faster acceleration
-High Cruising RPM's
-Does not use as many bolts to mate to the block (I believe)
-Won't handle as much power
-Holds more power
-More "ideal" gear ratios for the V6
-Lower cruising RPM's
-Can be found with LSD
-Requires upgraded axles and hubs for NA (or custom)
Feel free to point out other Positives or Negatives for either Transmission.
