Is this a good price for these parts?(JDM lsd tranny)

http://nh.craigslist.org/pts/1057066321.html

The reason why I am asking is because it is all for sale in my town.
What do you think?

What about the grind into 5th? My f22 tranny does that.

Re: Is this stuff worth what he wants for it?

its a known thing with our cars....synchros go bad. happened to people that bought the car after 5k miles put on it.

more on it here..http://www.preludeonline.com/f60/5th...synchro-63260/


and from an article on here

"Reliability & Strength:
For the most part, F & H series transmissions are pretty damn strong. On a naturally aspirated application, you’re not going to be seeing anywhere near enough torque for the raw strength of the transmission to become an issue.

However, like most modern trannies on the road, the synchros will rarely last very long if the box sees any abuse (speed or power shifting, etc.). And there is an issue with the 5th gear/reverse shifter fork – basically a product of a poor design. If it gets bent, you’ll find that 5th gear starts grinding, and putting it in reverse can become difficult or impossible. There is a TSB available from Honda on the subject, but reports from people who have had it done are rarely positive, as the problem returns in a few thousand miles. For the nitty-gritty on whats actually happening, check out the writeup done by Marcucci in the General FAQ section of www.preludeonline.com.

Unfortunately, there’s little to be done to avoid the problem other than being careful with your shifts. And if you’ve got the notorious 5th gear grind, make sure to treat that shift like it's glass to prevent a problem with your reverse. But there’s really no need to slam your gears anyway, and even speed-shifting serves little purpose for the vast majority of your time in the car. The cable tranny on the H/F trannies isn’t quite as forgiving of a sloppy shift as the rod-actuated ones on most B series, and there are no affordable aftermarket replacements. So relax a little and take an extra .3 seconds per shift, and your tranny & synchros should reward you with a nice, long life . . . ."

Re: Is this stuff worth what he wants for it?

Yeah, I knew that the f22 transmissions had that problem, I didn't know that all the f and h series trans had the shift fork issue. I am already used to taking it easy into 5th so I don't think that it will be a big deal

Re: Is this stuff worth what he wants for it?

if your going to do that setup...there is a lot of potential. BUT........reliability is another story. you have to realize h22's h23's are honda factory made..experimenting with setups..well...you defintely have to be mechanicly inclined just to diagnose problems, and if you dont..expect shops to charge $$ just because of a complicated setup.

my opinion, if you have the spare money and this is just a weekend car or summer etc..then do it by all means, more power FTW!

one of our well known members here blake is using this setup..but then again hes very knowledgeable about this.

Re: Is this stuff worth what he wants for it?

Maybe I will just pick up the trans, head and ecu and start looking for a block... What accessories can be used from the f22 (if any)?

Re: Is this stuff worth what he wants for it?

Damn, that would've been a steal for sure dude. $350 is hella cheap. And I'd be a bit careful about using the head with "unknown mileage." As far as using parts in the H22 from the F22, I think the crank and rods will work. Don't quote me though.
