gearbox changes

hey all. i have just developed some trouble with my four speed manual box, and ive had enough of it. so im wondering what i can swap that over with that will be more reliable and probably a bit better onthe fuel and power....i have heard that supra boxes will often [Naughty Pottyword] emselves if u put too much power into them or put a decent load in the back...is this so. however, do celica boxes also have this fault? if so, what would be the best fit for a gearbox goin onto a 308? any help appreciated. thanks guys

a supra 5 speed will handle a warm 308 easily if looked after, call some places like crs or dellow, who can also do tougher boxes like a tremec if you need the strength and have the $$$.

Not a celica behind a 308. They are for 6's only.
A supra should be able to handle 300hp.
so a 308 if you dont trash it too hard.

If its a hot 308 then probably a turbo supra would be better. (though more expensive)
