They are about the same as a stock 96-99 SSEi. They have slightly higher trap speeds. So, its a revvy top end car.

Edit: I thought it was a 2004, the 2002 is not as quick.

barely handle a MODDED L67, but I image most people get 100k out of their transmission if they treat it right.

Alot of it depends on the owner. I cannot believe that a trans would only last 3000 miles. Was the guy N-bombing it at every light or something?

Yeah, but on every oil change you have to drop a new tranny in
