Can't speak for you. It would be your opinion against mine.
Here's where I made my switch.
My car was making 450hp and I switched to a PG with an off the shelf PTC converter. Conventional internet wisdom would indicate to doom...
Car ran perfectly fine. I had no issues what so ever and was pleasantly pleased with the change from T-56 to TKO 600 to PG.
I went with a deep first gear because this car is a street car. a 1.8 might be a deep first gear for a PG, but when compared to a 3 or 4 speed, it's nothing of the sort. with start-and-go gridlock traffic and hills to contend with, the car responded beautifully. Again this was with a low hp car with an off the shelf converter. My car takes many long road trips racking up lots of miles.
the car has changed, but the PG still remains in the car. My PG has o/d and built to take an entire kitchen sink thrown at it without breaking a sweat. I've changed fluids, but that's about it. I suppose maybe next year I will pull it for a 10 clutch pack refresh? Might cost $200 for a total refresh...
with air conditioning, o/d and a simple but nice stereo, i'll take my PG across the country with zero hesitation.
if planned correctly from the start. A PG is a perfect square peg for our round holes. Of course that is my opinion and other will have their opinions.
