    i put a 91 si trannie in my 91 dx hatch about 3 months ago after i decimated the stock trannie and everything has been fine since. but tonight when i was riding around(grandma'ing it) my trannie went BANG and the car made a hard ass jerk and now gets stuck in every gear unless the car is off and not moving. also when it happened i was pulling off a green light and in the middle of a shift when it happened. my question is what happened? it snuck up out of nowhere when it happened because everything felt fine no more than 5 mins before.

    that might have happened to me also with my b16 tranny. All i heard was a big bang and when i looked harder there was a big chunk of metal missing under my tranny and exposing the diff. Damn, good luck with your tranny man . its going to me months before i even start looking for one.

    I guess this is a bad time to tell you; 88-91 Transmissions have the weak diff pin(I don't know if that's what caused your problem though)!

    I didn't know this until about a month ago after Transbone aka Transzex aka Mr Bone looked over a diff he was about to sell to me(91 Si diff). I've "upgraded" to a 92-95 EX differential instead(I checked the gap, suprisingly I didn't need to re-shim it). The 92+ have a thicker diff pin I believe.

    Heh, that happened when the springs on my Prelude's clutch decided to blow the hell up. Had to shift without the clutch and turn off the car, put it in first, and start it when the light turned green for a couple of days. :mrgreen:
