In this endeavor the goal is to swap out the existing 01E transmission for a brand new model with hardened gears. Not necessarily necessary, but I have it so I might as well do it while waiting for parts for the heater core. The benefit of this modification is to add an extremely strong 1st and 2nd gear to the car which allows for hard clutch-drops and launches from a stand-still, as well as more “generous” first to second gear shifts without blowing the whole transmission.
