    i just purchased a db1 and i want to get a b17 trans but im stuck between that or a b16 trans but im confused on one thing, i know that there are to diff final drives in the b16 trans one with 4:4 and one with a 4:2 if im correct which is the way to tell them apart when up close on them? and which is a better buy?

    I believe the code is different(Y1 vs. YS1, though some LS have YS1 too); but the GSR transmission has slightly closer gearing.

    I'd say the GSR is only slightly better for a race application, but they're harder to find.
