R33 Gearbox upgrades?

Hello ive been searching alot for a uprated R33 gtr gearbox or a rebuild kit with stronger 1-4 gears (close ratio)*

I cant make my mind at all on what route im gonna take.

First OS giken = 12 months delivery is way to much for me right now, but the price and quality on OS giken one is the perfect match for me,*

2nd R34 GTR gearbox + swapkit, anyone know if any companies source those?*

3rd* PPG 1-4 close ratio, 3 times as expensive vs OS giken ones? why? with work and stuff this kit is kinda close a OS giken / Quaife Sequential gearbox...

4th the Speedtek close ratio? seen a thread on SAU thats 2 years old that dident look so promising, anyone else running this with sucess?

you could try pgs transmissions see if they have anything availabe

i don't no why there is a 12 month wait on the os giken gearset but you could try rb motorsport see if they have any in stock

OS giken has always had very long delivery time because they simply wanna stay a small family company
so they barely keep anything in stock and just got their line running with oreders

But i will keep looking

I must have been very lucky when I got my OS giken kit. I ordered it through Midlands Performance and received it within three days.

I Advise you not to go to OS-giken kit
I Broke 3 of them at the level of 500whp, they lasted for 1 season only, for about 500km on track.
I switched to hollinger now, but if i would go over this again i would go for R34 box + tomei final drives for R34 box.
