looking for opinions here. i plan to at a later date build a tranny or buy 1 new. from experience i would like to here from everyone about the m5r2, Tremec 5-speed, t-5, and the well known t-56. this is just hunting for opinions on all of them.

M5R2 being a truck transmission, can handle the power and torque without a sweat, but with the right conditions at the track with enough power, and you could snap the tail off. Not to mention parts are obsolete and hard to come by. There's always the F150 syncros/blockers, but don't expect them to hold up. If you have the money, go for something bolder and better...just my opinion anyways.
