    Alright first of all. The LS/vtec was being built for racing before i bought it. So my problem is that when i take it for a spin its at 3k rpm's in 5th gear and i'm going 50mph! Not only that, it also gets higher as the speed goes up.
    my question is. Is there something i can do to "tune" or adjust so i dont burn the motor up?

    Also there is grindage in 3rd gear past 4 rpms. Can i save my tranny or does this mean i have to get a new one? (B16a lsd tranny)
    :eek:
    I need help please reply with suggestions!

    b16 trannys have a very high final drive, so they are going to make the engine rev alot. Only thing you can do is swap out the fifth gear for an LS fifth gear of go with an b18a tranny.

    You might be able to repair your tranny. Since 3rd is starting to grind I would get is taken care of as soon as you can. It goog to catch these early to minamize damage. While you were there if you want a better cruising speed to the LS 5th gear swap like asmallsol suggested.

    and no there's nothing you can do, besides swapping the trans. That trans is meant to have VERY short gears.

    no they dont. they have 4.4 like every other tranny, well MOST other trannies. its the actual gear ratios that make it so short.

    you shouldnt have any problem just driving it..

    My trans needs a differential, so it would cost you like another 375 for LSD or like 100 for a stock replacement.

    It does still move the car, slips at 5k, and you have to rev it up a bit in any gear to get it going and makes the most annoying, headache making noises from it.

    It's not worth you taking my trans unless you wanted to fix it, which I will eventually..if i keep it but I'm not taking it out till I get another one or someone actually wants to trade.

    well i just drove around and rebuilding is out of the question. From what the guy who bought it from told me was that this tranny cost alot of dough. Well i cant use on the street so i guess i have to sell or trade.

    hey civicb18b1, thanks for the offer but im looking not to have any more headaches. This tranny doesnt grind under normal conditions, just when you want to step on the gas. And man does this thing fly! Rumor has it this car ran a 14.1. Is that pretty good for a stock ls/vtec?.
