im buying a type r trans today hopefully. guy says no grinds on it but what exactly do i look for when its out of the car. Obviously the trans number and the lsd by looking through the axle holes, but how do i know if gears are ok and so forth?

Unless you know how to look for wear on the syncro sleeves, or check if the bearings are good theres not a whole lot to find. I would take drain it, and take off the case to look inside.

You can not use a hydraulic transmission on your cable transmission car unless you buy the Hasport kit. The B16 transmission is going to cost quite a bit alone. If you really need to save cash find a cable LS transmission.

Find a JDM b16 trans.
Even better if you can get the one with LSD.

Both of you 92-93 guys will just need to use a 90-91 clutch disc though.


Look in g2ic to see if anyone has any trans for sale.
So lsd i don't need a harness is lsd like cable tranny?

LSD, is limited slip differential.
It helps both wheels spin at the same time for better traction.
Search for better details.

Or you can install an aftermarket LSD into your trans, but make sure it a streetable one.
I know someone who bought a drag LSD and he can hardly make corner turns without chirping, LOL.

Some JDM b16 cable trans have it.
Or USDM Type-R hydro trans have it.
(must use hydro to cable conv. kit for the Type-R trans)

My friend got one brand new for $1,800
(must have Honda hook-up for this price though)

haha, shorter gears give you faster acceleration but lower top end speed

LS trannies are longer geared than the GS-R

I just purchased a 95 GSR transmission w/ 75k on it for $450 shipped on Ebay from a trusted seller (its all about feedback on Ebay). This was to replace my LS transmission. I love the shorter gears! I just took it down to the transmission shop and they did some kind of test and told me it was in great shape. I'm not sure what they charged me for the test because I had them install the transmission with a new Exedy clutch & ACT 12 lb. flywheel that same day and it came out to about $500. Hope that helps. Goodluck!
