Exclamation Tranny or Engine

Ok now my options are this either, a tranny upgrade to put down the horses I already have or a engine upgrade to produce more. Price is not an issue b/c they will both get done eventually just need help deciding which one first.

i'd do the tranny upgrade first to insure that it will be able to handle the power better when you get to the engine.
