Not discounting the knowledge here, but I'd hope you'd seek information on an MR2 forum (or two) as well. I had to look up the platform designator. Best of luck here, there or anywhere.

Thanks for the reply guys. Yeah I am gathering all the info I can. The reason why I am here is that I am going to be using the gear box from EP and it seems there are quite a number of people here uses it as well.

The E153, right? I know some here use it, and it does seem to be sturdy based on what I've read.

There are plenty of smart people here (me excluded). Obviously you're building on a different platform, so take the input here with a grain of salt.
