I recently acquired a 5 speed out of a WRX to put into my swapped OBS. The car it came out of was BUILT, but unfortunately totalled (Glanced off a jersey barrier and landed on the roof. Based on mods, I'm guessing in the realm of 450 whp, if not more; 4bar MAP, deadbolt sz49, huge Perrin tmic (I got that too). 850cc injectors...

Anyway...

I got the car all squared away and took it out for a test drive. The transmission sounds like a whipple supercharger, and the shifting is super notchy/solid.

I don't want to get incredibly excited, nor do I want to split the tranny out of curiosity, but what are the odds that I have a set of straight cut PPG gears in there? Is there any tranny failure that sounds like that through the gears?
