    The h22 tranny is a little more responsive and torque. But with the 5th. gear they have you can only cruise at like 65mph w/out doing any damage. SO to fix that i was going to swap an accord 5th. gear. Its a little taller and with it you can run at 80mph no problem. But i thought maybe while i'm at it maybe i should should put better gears in while i'm doing 5th.? Used to drive a 5th. g accord and a 4th. g lude. So i'm not sure if the tranny is direct swap to 6th. gen?

    my t2w4 is said to be around 4k rpm at 80mph ... that's 800rpm more than the f23 5 speed ... i'm not worried

    The h22 tranny on the f23 owns and so far no damage done? lol. :D
    It's probably the best upgrade I've done besides boost lol. I love it so much, fifth gear feels as strong (if not stronger) than the f23's fourth gear.

    I do cruise around 70mph though but not because I'm scared it'll do some damage, It just gets louder at around 80mph (4,000rpm).
    Other than that.. I love the HUGE increase in responsiveness of EVERY single gear.

    I was told over time that if you cruise in 5th. over 70 mph that it would cause damage to the gear.

    Ok i was told WRONG then.


    Well i'm going to do a h22 tranny swap. Is it worth it to get the m2a4 and Rebiuld it. Or just get the h22 w/ Lsd? And is it a direct swap? did you have to modify anything?

    If you are planning on swapping in an H22 tranny, I wont bother unless you use the LSD tranny. It is the absolute BEST mod you can do for a FWD car. Forget the swaps, forget the turbos, a good LSD tranny will do wonders for the handling of the car.
