    JDM ITR tranny would be the best, but a GSR tranny would do. It just unbolts, then bolt the new tranny up.

    A close ratio tranny revs higher, the LS wasn't made to rev past 7k.

    This is sort of true. The closer gears allow the engine to spin up faster, but they don't "rev higher". A tighter tranny will lower the top speed of your car, but with the LS tranny you hit the speed limiter before you run out of revs in 5th gear. I have not ridden in a B18B powered car with a tight tranny, but it will be much the same as the B18A1 with a B16 tranny on it which felt good. You will see a decrease in gas mileage, but it helps the LS "pull" harder.

    If the 94+ speed limiter is the same as the 93 (I think that it is) the ECU cuts at 135mph. You shouldn't have any problems hitting that with a GSR tranny.

    can you put an lsd system in the gsr tranny and how much will it cost. 135 on the high way is fast enough lol :D thanks

    yes you can put an LSD in that tranny
    Quaife, Kaaz, or stock ITR will work
    all run in the $800 - $900 range
    another company that makes a great LSD is GT (Guard Transmissions) but i cant find a web site or any info on them.... only seen them and heard reviews from people who have had them put into track Porsches

    Quaife or OEM ITR LSD.

    quaife is guaranteed for life, ITR LSD is good up to 240whp or so.

    all others pale in comparison, cusco, mugen, kaaz, etc are all not as strong and not as streetable.
