    the only difference is that the '96 ITR has a 4.40 final drive, and the '98+ has a 4.75 final drive

    4.75 accelerates faster, but the 4.40 is more tolerable on freeways.

    the '98+ tranny will allow you to accelerate quicker...with the gear ratios being shorter...it will also eat more gas for a regular daily driver...but this tranny would be better for the tracks.

    the '96 tranny is more daily driver friendly...but it will not accelerate as quickly. I have seen a video where both a '96 and '98 ITR race and their quarter mile times were the same, eventhough the '98ITR accelerates quicker, the longer 4th gear in the '96 helped it to catch up.


    So, its your choice.

    ummmm then it would be the same as the 98

    ?????

    if the ony difference is the final drive, and you switch it, then they arent different any more

    well, i already had the 98+ tranny. now getting an engine tranny combo (cheaper that way) got the 96-96 jdm engine (500 cheaper then 98+) but the tranny i think might be in better shape. so i was thinking of putting the final drive gear from the 98 tranny i already have into the 96-97 i am getting. make sense? let me know if that sounds right.

    wait a minute... :unsure:

    i'm pretty sure (not 100%) that all usdm itr trannies are the same, with the 4.4 final. all 97 and below jdm itr trannies are the same as the usdm ones. the 98+ jdm itr tranny has the 4.785 final AND longer 4th and 5th gears. is that correct? i think it is.

    EDIT:
    it says so right here: http://www.hondaswap.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=29796
