|it should be fine. I won't have enough traction to put the gearbox under huge amounts of stress. They're used in 2wd cossies with similar power, and the powerband on the V8'll be much smoother than that of a 2wd turbo car. If I run into problems then I'll go for a Glebe dog box conversion which is stronger.
if that fails, then I'll go down the Tremec T56 route.
