Hey I have a question about the syncros your using. Has there been a incease/decrease in transmission braking. How about noise. Is it different sounding, louder, etc. Thanks.

Hey melt what clutch is in the car now? Still the stage one? Cause the paper with the write out of mods says it's a stage four. I don't know if it was you that made up this folder of paper work or if somebody else typed out the mod list and lied about the clutch. My friend asked what I had in it since he's about to get a new one. Thought I would turn to you like it seems like a lot of people do haha.

because there aint no rest for the wicked, untell we close our eyes for good.

From what I cant tell it had definite benefit as reverse goes in like buttah.
Hey MeltMan, I finally got around to getting a used 94 LS trans. Everything looks pretty good inside the case except the reverse gears. I took apart mainly because I did not know its history and wanted to check it over and replace the common ISB before I had to yank it out too soon. I read that you reshaped your reverse gears. Could you comment on mine if I can maybe reshape or do I need to replace? Im trying to be on a budget. If it was a GSR trans I would be all for replacing, but not sure how long I will have this trans. Thanks in advance. Mac

Water leaks fixed for now. Working on getting body back to OEM.

I just took a dremel and made the pointy edges of each gear "pointy" again.

Mine looked much like that. It just makes it easier to get into reverse.

Thanks, it look as I may be doing that myself. I was going to buy a revese idler gear for LS trans and it is discontinued by Honda. Best I can do is buy a 1/2 sleeve from gearspeed that has external gear and dremel the idler gear. I think I will save some money and dremel both. Thanks again.
