I don't mean to be rude; but...
Shut your mouth. If you've never driven that type of hybrid you're "out of your element, Donny!" You DO NOT know of what you speak.

I've been running that swap since 2005, with stage 3 clutch and lightweight flywheel and IT CHANGED THE BEHAVIOR SIGNIFICANTLY! I'd blown the mtx75 up and it cost damn-near the same amount to upgrade the whole gearbox AND the parts inside it... one of the best changes I've made to the car!

Again; didn't mean to come across as rude, but you should have some actual experience before saying something inflammatory like that! I still love ya, Stealth!
