Do you think that putting a rx-8 6-speed tranny in to a older rx-7 is worth it. or is a turbo tranny a better investment?

the rx8 tranny is holding like 238 which is more than most NAs will ever see. none of the driveshafts are cf, and you have to have custom shafts made when doing this stuff

That would make sense because it's a different car and would have different placement of such things and I believe they mounted the FE engine a little further back than in the previous RX-7s.
