    Car is a 97 Mustang GT. Assume you'll never make more than 300lb/ft with the motor. Your stock T45 tranny is dying

    TKO500/TKO600 for $1900 including tremec bell housing

    OR

    Send T45 to Hanlon motorsports and have them rebuild it along with stronger shift forks for $900 including labor.

    Also assume you're a girl, and you want good gas mileage.

    I'm in with the others...but the rebuild would only be worth it if they can work magic with the 2nd gear synchro. The T45 2nd gear synchro is total rubbish.

    I'd take the TKO because it's better to plan ahead...
