Ok thanks for the info guys! The trans was one of the last years of the model, an 1986 is what I was told. I know this trans has been in the car for at least 10 years. The PO did a lot of track days and racing with it but he always blipped the throttle on up shifts and matched revs when down shifting. So I think it wasn't abused very badly at all. He said it had all the wearing bits replaced 5000 kms ago.

The only upgrades that know of are a short shift kit, LSD and a center force clutch. There are twin oil coolers on the motor but I'm not sure if there's an oil cooler for the trans, i'll have a look. I just got that car last week and I'm moving in 2 days so I've been busy packing and I haven't had much time to really get under it and check thing out.

I'll definitly take it easy on the trans. I'll never dump the clutch and always shift it as nicely as I can and hopefully I can make it last

Cheers, chris
