B Series Final Drive and Gearing Discussion
Ok. After much discussion and learning ive come to realize that I either have:
A B16 tranny case with LS internals
A B16 tranny with a different Final Drive gear.
So my question is, If you have a B16 tranny would putting a LS final drive in it make it close to an LS tranny? I know that all of the B-Series trans. have close gearing (as shown below) so im trying to end up with a shorter geared tanny than my old GSR trans.
S80/Y80 (USDM B18B1)
Y80 (USDM B18C1)
S80 (JDM B18C w/Helical LSD)
S80 (USDM B18C5 W/LSD)
And below you will see the rpm reading each tranny should show and a set speed (mph) minus the JDM GSR LSD
B16 (Y21,S21,S4C) -
3rd gear @ 50 mph = 4672 rpm
5th gear @ 50 mph = 2717 rpm
GSR (S80,Y80) -
3rd gear @ 50 mph = 4358 rpm
5th gear @ 50 mph = 2522 rpm
LS (S80) -
3rd gear @ 50 mph = 3942
5th gear @ 50 mph = 2218
I did have a GSR trans in my GSR before this and it seemed to rev better and pull more than this B16.
Thank you. -cam
