My option - Def stronger, drive shafts thicker, e series so similar to the gt4 box. Viscous lsd as standard, though how effective nowadays is a fair question. Perfect for more powerful engines. 

 

down sides - pointless for the power of normal 3sge and clutch is trickier to find.

As Digs says. E56 is pretty much a GT4 box with the transfer box missing and blanked off. It's much stronger, bigger and heavier than the S54. Ideal for 3sgte or V6 conversions - but pointless on a 3sge. The s54 is plenty good enough and much lighter.

 

Spot had an E56 on his supercharged V6 celica...held that no problem. They are a very strong box.
