JDM trans swap?

Heyo guys, I was just wondering if it was at all possible to swap the JDM Honda Prelude type S trans into my 00 USD Honda prelude( man ) offcourse.

is it a dirrect bolt on if it's possible. I just like the trans because it comes with a limited slip, and the gears are all a lot better.

it's all about the transmission ;)

You can put a Type S tranny in an SH, but it's the same thing. Both have ATTS, which is sort of an electronic LSD.

The Si-R S-Spec tranny has a true LSD, and it bolts up to all other H22's without worry about ECU and other concerns with ATTS.

FYI, the Type S gears are the same as all other H22 gears.

You're better off getting a good after market LSD and throwing it in your tranny

Viscous LSD are crappy anyways

Re: JDM trans swap?

Nope, just get the regular manual tranny from a BASE model Prelude, along with the pedals and other required parts for the swap, obviously. You can keep your motor though.

Re: JDM trans swap?

ALL of the information you just requested is on this website, as well as all other prelude forums........ instead of digging up a year old thread, use the search function next time.

As a matter of fact, the transmission codes are earlier in this very thread. M2Y4 is the USDM 5th gen base transmission....

And no, the H22A type s engine will not drop into your base model without an ATTS system and a type s/sh transmission (M2U4)

The only other way to fit a Type S engine into a base model prelude is by mating it to the BASE model transmission, and fabricating (or buying) an adapter plate that will allow you to attach the base model intermediate shaft to the Type S/SH block...

This info has all been posted hundreds if not thousands of times... search search search search search!

Re: JDM trans swap?

Sigh....

The 5th gen Type S did NOT come with an LSD... The 5th gen Type S came with the same transmission and the same ATTS as the Type SH....

Type S engine WILL drop right in to an unmodified Type SH...

Type S engine will NOT drop right in to an unmodified base

If it truly comes with a transmission already, then sure you can drop it right in to whatever you like.....
