that was my first plan, but i was told you could build a tranny better than the type s by changing gears around, but i was just curious after i heard that today. but i'll prolly just do the type s swap on it!!

and does anyone know where to get type R heads?

Honestly, the stock EP3 gears are pretty good for a stock or near stock EP3 engine. If you have cams & K-pro, you can benefit from going to a 6-spd with a shorter final drive.

I have an 02 type-s trans with a 5.062 final drive + TSX 6th gear + LSD. It's a great gearbox for my engine, but would make zero sense on a near stock k20a3.

Maybe you should look into getting a limited slip & some drag radials if you want to run faster 1/4s.
