Icon7 M2B4 LSD transmission

ok like everybody else with a 5th gen prelude my trans is f***ed. whinning in every gear, 5th gear grind and wont go into reverse. i can rebuild the trans for a arm and a leg. or i can get a m2b4 with oem lsd with no more then 60k on it for about $600. i dont know much about these transmissions. is it worth getting the m2b4 or should i just get my trans rebuilt?? what are the advantages and disadvantages of the m2b4 besides the lsd?? i did some research but didnt help much. will the jdm trans bolt righ on to my base model 97 h22a4??
thanks

Re: M2B4 LSD transmission

Gear ratios is what is important. I personally would prefer a relaxed final gear for highway cruising.
Shop around, you have a few choices for transmissions.

Re: M2B4 LSD transmission

I've got one and love it... no consistent problems with these trannies... some people claim tbey can develop 5th gear grind (like other lude trannies...), but I have no issues...

here's an m2b4 for sale... don't know anything about the person or tranny in question... just ran across it on a search.

here is a chart of some gear ratios to help you decide:
