Hey guys, I'm new to this 5-speed thing,(I've always been an auto guy), and my T5 went south. I'm on a tight budget & my mechanic is a good tranny builder. I do not intend on my car ever developing beyond 13.0 flat E.T's since it willl continue to be my daily driver. I believe the T5 will do fine...am I correct? What will hurt it the easiest? Slicks? Hp & torque range you guy's feel or have experienced as safe? I know the factory ratings; I just want to hear it from experienced people as to what anyone here on the Corral thinks.....thanx in advance.
