Hi All
To make things short and sweet, I built a corolla E70 facelift with a 3vzfe v6 connected to a w57 gearbox,Heads have been done mildly and gives 150kw
on the wheels,here is the question. when I shift from 2nd to 3rd under torque, It doesn't want to select, I have to literally take my foot off the throttle
for it to engage. the gearbox is brand new and it was fitted with a racing clutch. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

OK, I've bit the bullet and got a 289 Ford V8. :roll: Now my question is which is the best gearbox to mate this engine to? :twisted:

Most likely auto 4spd - am too heavy on clutches to fit a manual :roll:
