depends what you want.

6 speeder is roughly 1800+ vat and good for roughly 500+

ppg helical cut gear set will do 550 ish 3k

then the ppg striaght cut is good for 650+ and thats 3k ish

upside to the ppg straight cut is its much stronger, dopwn side is it wines

these prices should be more or less exactly right cos i blew up mine last month and i paid 3k for a straight cut ppg box

all depends on the sort of power you`re aiming for mate, and if you intend to use it as an everyday car. If you`re only going to say 450 max and want to use the car daily then I would think the 6 speed would be a better option

work out a list of what you want ideally, then slowly work your way through the list buying bits. That way you won`t buy anything you will later need to replace for more power
