Question for Tom regarding a trany?

Ok, I keep hearing that the zx2 transmissions do brake down easily from another forum. What I need to know is what other upgrades are there that I can do on a ZX2 tranny besides better clutch and a LSD? (Bearings, spider gears, ECT.)
I want to make it as daily driven as possible, with that in mind I need to make the tranny much safer taking on 300hp. I need your advice on what to do with the tranny while itís out of the car to avoid costly repairs?

Is the 314 hp on stock engine internals? And the bearings that you sell those are just for the LSD that comes with in the package?

Coming from the ZX2 world, I looked for options like this myself. www.zxtuner.com does sell a stronger tranny with better gearing for ZX2s. Other than that, you're looking at 3000+ for a Level10 bulletproof transmission, and that's about it.
