I local shop owner will trade me my 96 ls tranny with no grinds plus $200 cash for a 95 gsr tranny w/ no grinds. Is it worth it to do this trade. Both have about equal miles on'em?

how do you know the gsr tranny doesnt grind? dont know until you mount it on your car

but i dont think a gsr tranny on a ls is a good idea

gsr tranny on an LS is a great idea. I say go for it, but ask the guy for some sort of warranty, get it in writing, and if any thing should be a problem, he will have to fix or replace it.

I don't think the guy would screw me on it. I know him personally. I was originally looking for an ITR tranny but the 120 mph top speed doesn't really appeal to me.

What kind of improvement would a gsr tranny only give me on my 15.9 sec 5spd LS. All other things equal?

No you don't need a gs-r ecu.. any b series tranny bolts up to any b series engine without any other modification.

It is really hard to say "how much" of an increase you will get from this but there will surely be one.

Tell him to include installation, and I call that a good deal.

But you gotta ask, why does he want that LS tranny? Makes you have second doubts on it in the first place. If it's the typical: "Oh I'm going to boost and I need longer gears so I can stay in boost longer.....
" Oh well.

You lay down more torque in every gear with a GSR tranny, and depending on how you mod your car, it tends to have a better up-shift landing rpm at redline for your power band package over the LS.

save your dough and get a C5 tranny dude youll be way more happy(and faster)
my problem with that is the 30 mile 80mph drive to and from work each day. My rpms will be even higher with an itr tranny. The gsr seemed like a good compromise.

Wish I knew what kind of gain i'll get from this... It's a pain in the ass to change out!

I love how everyone throws out "get this" "no do this" when they have no idea what this guy wants from his car? What are you planning to use the car for? What is your powerband location? What mods have you/will you do? Lastly most of this is already covered here.

Wow, what an idiotic statement. You are now crowned moron of the day.

Torque Multiplication

Not it is not hard at all, it is an exact science really. Just check the link above.

Quote: MichaelDelaney on Feb/26/04just to point out a blatant mistake on this thread:
the top speed isn't 120 mph with an itr tranny.

Right, but its not much off, 127 @ 6800RPM (we're talking B18B1 here).
yeah I still have a b18b and I figured it at about 6500rpm instead of 6800 cause at 6500 my power goes down the tubes.

And as far as the gains I read through the article posted and understand that..that is why I want this tranny. My ? was more of a time gained in the 1/4 not that I'll gain roughly 55-60 ft/lbs of APPLIED torque

OK MY MAIN QUESTIoN WAS......It it worth it? he's giving me $500.00 for mine and I give him 200 more for the gsr tranny.

Sorry I even brought up the performance factors of this cause it always gets derailed with a bunch of personal opinions

Looking from a performance aspect, I'd say go with the C5...

...But if theres nothing else, just go with the GSR, if you got the money.

Why keep the LS tranny if you have the chance to upgrade? (Turbo?)
