This weekend I was drag-racing up @ NED, and went a *little* overboard on one of the launches.

long story short, my trans is empty, and has big holes in it.

Back to the question:
is there any reason to upgrade to a VIGGEN transmission?
are the gears taller?
are the gears *stronger*?
Will I need different axles?
if I do this Will I need new hubs?

I'm sort of on a tight schedule.. I need the car running again, soon.
I found a ~60k mile Viggen trans, but I don't want to pay the Extra $ if it's the same trans, and no tougher.

Thanks Guys!

sounds like I should just go 2L trans again, huh?
Do the bigger axles fit in the regular 9-3 hub?


just looked... yes they do.

if I can get the viggen trans and axles for under $700, I'm all-in.

there's a 23k mile 2L trans not too far that is $600

and a 50k viggen trans about as far for $600
if I can swing the axles relatively cheap, it'll be perfect!

the work is being done on monday

60k mile '99 9-3 trans and axles.
redline MTL 70-80, and "spec" stage 2 clutch and whatever pressure-plate nick sells with it.
I tried getting a lightened flywheel, but james is having issues with his machinist in CA, so that's a no-go. maybe I'll ask my transmission-shop if they can machine some extra material off.

Tomorrow, I'm ordering the 3" exhaust from Nick, and a new slave cylinder from Eeuroparts.com should just-about wrap up the drivetrain "mods"
