Is the final drive gear in the transmission or is it seperate?

The reason I ask: Unfortunately I was tricked into swapping out my GSR tranny for an LS tranny. Now I will be getting a GSR tranny back in my car and wanted to make sure it would have the GSR final drive.

May seem like a stupid question, but I know very little about how transmissions work and what the final drive gear is.

Good thing you got your tranny back. Your car was probably slow as crap when you switched huh? I know how you feel cause i have an ls tranny with my vtec engine also.

I lost about .5 off of my ET after the tranny swap. It didn't help that that the transmission has a bad grind in third either. I should be getting a GSR tranny back soon.

The grinding in third will probably happen on your gsr trany also, since it's caused by the aggressive cluth engagement. It's a problem upshifting from second into third only in very high rpms, You need more power for a smoother engagement, but still the gsr trany is alot better then the ls one. My Ls already had a ys1(93 gsr) tranny in it, lucky me!

turbo is better with an ls tranny becaue it has longer gearing and that way you can stay in the peak of the turbo power longer.

but would you wanna just rip through it rather than staying there longer (sracthing head on that one)what would happen if i put the gsr tranny in now without vtec or a turbo yet will it work better than the ls tranny?

well you see since you have turbo lag in low rpms because it take time for the turbo to spool you want to stay in the turbo range as long as possbile. hence the reason for longer gearing. i dont understand your second question though.
