Yeah, those lude trans are kinda weak, any 90-97 accord or 94-2000 lude trans will work. I have a independant shop and have done alot of honda/acura work. you can buy new, big bucks for sure, or rebuilt used or just plain old used. If you can't locate one I might be able to hook ya up?? e-mail @ [email protected] good luck eh?

your tranny didnt blow for no reason while you were at the light.
did you launch the car hard or something?
give us more details as to what happend maybe we can figure out what went wrong...maybe its just clutch/flywheel/cable related.

Would it not go into gear or did the clutch have a loose feel? We need details.

your right, my tranny didnt blow for no reason at a light. It blew up for no reason at a stop sign. I wouldnt lie. A nice guy driving a turbo supra stoped and helped me push my car to the side of the road. I walked back up to the stop sign and picked up 3 small differential gears among hundreads of metal peices and even a peice of the tranny housing. my shift linkage rod or whatever its called was also hanging down touching the ground. But anyway the car is at my mech's and the said the differential broke for what ever reason. I think its just an old car and metal fatigue got to it. thanks for the replys and keep em coming. If i can find a 2nd gen gsr that would be good.

update: Im getting a used ls tranny. Its gonna cost me $1,000.
I tried to find a gsr cable tranny but it was hard enough to find a ls tranny. Im also getting new motor mounts. I think that was the cause for my premature cv axel and tranny failure.

While you have it apart, if you can swing the extra cash, go ahead and put an LSD and all in there. Better to do it now than to take it back apart. Unless your really not into modding this thing up a lot.
