6-speed gearbox or TRD clutch+flywheel?

For my 2003 GT (manual), wondering should I change to GTS gearbox with 6-speed manual, or simply stick to my 5-speed and change to TRD clutch + flywheel...

Any ideas, pros and cons?

Flame me if I'm wrong; but I thought I remember reading somewhere that the tq/hp curve of the GT engine would not work well with the gear ratio of the GTS six speed transmission.

6 speed will only make you slower...

clutch and flywheel. The engine's are too different in terms of power, it'll make you slower with a 6 speed

What about the euro gt model. It has a six speed. And since youll hae to swap ecus Im sure it will work fine. more gears equals more fun. hell i wish i had 8.

Not familiar with the Euro GT model...but it seems that the difference is more than just the tranny...which also means that if I simply swap my GT to a 6-speeder without "the other stuff", it no where near the real McCoy...

the gts gearbox isn't geared for the GT.. but if you have a turbo kit on there and are able to rev up to at least 7500 then the 6speed gearbox will help especially with acceleration
