Gear Box for a VL turbo peoples thoughts

I am searching for a new gearbox and I came across these whats peoples thoughts on them?

VL TURBO RS5F30A BOX (FITS RB25DET RB30ET AND RD 26DETT ENGINES. THIS BOX IS THE SAME AS THE GTR BOX BUT WITHOUT TRANSFER FOR 4 WHEEL DRIVE. $1500

RB20DET box. ( ratios are 3.3 1.9, 1.31, 1, 0.76) limited availability. These boxes have monster (wider) gears than normal 71C boxes (eg SR and CA) and double synchros on 2nd and third gear. Also has iron shifter instead of aluminium on 3-4. Very tough box. $750


VG30DET 5 speed 71C box $850

I am usure about the VG30det box but the RB20det box sound pretty good to me for the price. But I have been told they are **** boxes and I tend to agre as thats what I am replacing.
so what do you guys think?


sorry bout the caps I but I copy pasted this from a add
will retype if ya wont

I got told by the guy at PPG (not the paint place) in Adelaide that the RB25DET box and the RB26DETT box were exactly the same thing except the GTR one had the transfer case off the side. Thats the one I plan on using and would recommend you use. The RB20 box wont take as much. I wouldnt touch anything from a 300zx with a barge pole, but thats just my personal bias, I hate the things and their weak engine blocks.
