i don't know how to read gear ratio's but i hope this helps
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?
wat? damage? huh?
my t2w4 is said to be around 4k rpm at 80mph ... that's 800rpm more than the f23 5 speed ... i'm not worried
Yeah, you shouldn't be. It wont cause any damage.
The h22 tranny on the f23 owns and so far no damage done? lol.
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.
Thats the OBD1 tranny? or any H22 tranny? Just curious.
I have the m2a4.. obd1 h22 according to the list above ^^
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.
