NWC vs. WC T5

I just left a local transmission shop. The builder there actually said that eventhough the World Class T5 was rated to handle more torque than the Non World Class, the NWC is a better transmission and will work better with a mildly built up 351W than the World Class. Has anyone else heard that or agree with it.

Ive heard it; no I don't agree with it.
As it stands, the NWC stuff is quickly being phased out (in regards to OEM products). Also, the 2.95 ratio Ford input is hard to find at the moment, although the number is still current.

To the OP:

You might want to look into a late model V6 Ford T5 (say the 2000 era). These had all the good stuff and are readily available (although you'll have to do your homework on the input length, bellhousing compatibility and clutch setup.
