    Majority of these "reputations" that go around on these boards happen because a couple people do something or break something, then the people that read it repeat it in another thread and so on. Its a huge pyramid. Majority of these people have never even been to a track.
    For example, if you look years back there was a rumor that the reason why gears break was because the wrx case flexes. This went on for a few years before one of the most reputable subaru shop owners set it straight.

    Gears break from too much power or improper shifting.

    Of course a bad install or defective gears would do it too, but thats less often.

    The reason I took mine out was because my car was making a noise. I took it to a few very reputable subaru shops. They all thought it was coming from the tranny, So I bought ppg 1st and second and v5 sti 3, 4. This way I would be prepared for any future upgrades. After the tranny was rebuilt, the noise was still there. That was probably another 200 launches ago and the car still runs great.
    I have also been considering trans upgrades, how much did you spend (ball parK) on building yours?
