i just blew out the 5th/reverse synchros in my M2A4 (JDM) H22 tranny...
i want to redo all the synchros since they were all slowly going anyway

my question is.... can i replace my M2A4 tranny synchros with say USDM transmission synchros from a M2F4?

in other words... if i order synchros for a M2F4 transmission, will they fit my M2A4 transmission??

thanks for the help!!

ok.... so i just got off the phone with my mechanic at Honda.

he said i can't replace my synchros with ones for a USDM transmission because my gear ratios are different than that of a USDM transmission

where can i order synchros for a JDM M2A4 transmission??? Someone help, PLEASE!!!

your best bet would be to get another used tranny, jdm or usdm doenst matter...you will probly pay more if you get the synchros replaced...that is not an easy job and its hard to rebuild a tranny and get it right the first time...

thanks guys.... i'm going to pick up another JDM tranny tomorrow

talked to my Honda guy again... told me the parts were gonna cost me anywhere between $500-700CAD (i'm in Canada) plus probably about $200 in labour i'm guessing (he was doing it on the side, while working at Honda... LOL)

so i called up a bunch of JDM parts distributors and i found the same JDM tranny for $600CAD

correct.

jdm transmissions have slightly shorter gear ratios
