Thanks for this great thread. I've got an '06 Winning Blue that is going to be my 2.5 project car. It's a GT, but I also have a brand new 5-speed trans that can go in. Wanted to ask...I assume your budget 2.5 build has a 5-speed in it? Does it seem to handle the power of a cam'd 2.5 ok? Figured I might try the 5-speed and then strengthen my 6-spd while it is out with NC2 box upgrades.

Also, what clutch setup are you running? I have an Exedy HD pressure plate from a previous car and was trying to decide if the Exedy Stage 1 clutch disc would handle the power of a 2.5 with a cams or if I would need to do the Stage 2?
I do not ever plan to boost it. It will be street driven and sometimes RallyX'd and ice raced. I have already purchased your 1.8 Max header, hemholt mid, and RS muffler. Thanks!

We have had good luck getting the 5 Speed to survive, still have one in our 300+HP supercharged 2007. The key seems to be limit the twist with better engine mounts in particular, diff mounts help too. Start with our RoadsterSport engine mounts, high durometer rubber. LINK IS HERE. You will also see we have MUCH stiffer mounts than these, but this is my own choice as BEST if car will still get some street driving, they won't rattle your teeth!

As for clutch, while the used 2.5 motor was on the way into the car my recollection is that we grabbed an old ACT stage 1 that was used, well used, from my own junk pile of NC bits at home.

Answer is YES, easily!


Hey Brian! Any update on when the 12.19 BBK might hit shelves?

My hope is by late July but still testing various options on that.
