    ok well i have a spare cable LS trans. its a 92-93 and i want to build it up to make a nice race transmission. it grinds gears, and needs work anyway so why not. i figure i could put in a jdm itr lsd with 4.7 final drive and some nice short gears like b16 gears or something.

    how much am i looking at for the gears themselves?
    what gears are compatable? ive heard that the hydro gears will work but i want to be sure.
    i have a helms for a 94 gsr, will that be sufficient?
    where can i find the needed parts? i want to kind of limit myself on how much i spend. i dont want to go all out on this thing.
    i know tranny ork is tedious, but am i getting over my head? i know ill need a bearing puller and a press, both of which i have at my disposal.

    any general tips? or suggestions? thanks.

    Wow. I'm not sure what's compatible and what's not- I don't think you can use the JDM ITR LSD though. You might have to hunt for one of the older clutch-type LSDs that were available with the cable transmissions.

    Bump for you.

    mike is right... the cable tranny won't accept the hydro diff, lsd, etc... they are very different.
