5puk and a spare mf5 to replace it in a few months.

just depends on how brutal you are on the box.

a car i owned had an mf5 in it for about 3 years before i bought it and was making over 200rwkw and when i sold it the box was still fine

seeing is believing dont just think "oh its an mf5 it wont last" same as a6 motors, mx7's ar'nt exactly bulletproof either

my vl turbo had an mf5, did heaps of rev limiter launches, box was fine but the clutch went

I doubt it would hold 180rwkw for long though.

Exedy heavy duty organic, Mine held 189kw for 2 years odd before the box let go.
Edit the box didnt exactly let go I just wore the hard casing off a gear from driving at high speed for an extended period. Box was still fine just sounded like I was running a massive blower lol.

Had a talk to a friend about this, theyll handle the power, just wont handle shockloading / clutch dumping.
