Quick 4EAT trans question, AWD cars...
Posted 27 September 2005 - 11:28 AM
I want to swap my old 4EAT/AWD tranny from my car for a 5spd eventually, but I have a good lead on an inexpensive JDM trans I could just r&r.
Anyone have any experience with these used take-out jap domestic model parts packs?
I've heard they are all low-mileage.
Would the internal diffs be a completely different ratio than my USA 4EAT?

Check out Josh's website, he did the job himself and has a lot of good pointers.
I have driven a number of JDM cars in New Zealand after retirement from the domestic market. The mechanicals are usually in pretty good shape.

Price is right, and at least I can roll the dice and take advantage of the (brief) warranty period.
I'll be interested in seeing what the innards of the extension housing look like compared to my well-worn unit.
Anyway, the next adventure will be a pretty straightforward plug-n-play, maybe if I'm having a cognizant day I'll take some documentary footage. Could be fun...
