Wink 5 speed to 6 speed transmission

HI Any1 know if i could buy a new type-s tranny Case, use my 5 speed internals from my base rsx transmission and add a new tsx 6th gear? would that work?

i did some researsh and i found the 5 speed conversion kit, but they say it remove the reverse protection and i could select Reverse instead of 6th gear by accident.. i think that would destroy my transmission right away so i was wonderin if there was another way of doing it.

Thanks

Yes that would work. You don't need a new trans case though. The base case can fit 6 gears.

There is no reverse lock-out on the base. You would need a Type-S trans with the solenoid on it, the Type-S engine harness to connect to it, and an ECU that can recognize and actuate that solenoid. It's pretty hard to go into reverse unless you really force it though.

Exactly what is this "kit"

LOL Link?


All you have to do is to open up your transmission, remove the reverse actuator piece, add the 6th gear to the main and counter shaft, reinstall the shafts using 6spd shift forks, convert your shifter mechanism to a 6spd one and you're back in business.

I think this is what he means:

Waste of time if you ask me. It won't do anything except give you a lower cruising RPM and you'll be able to say that you have a "6-speed." Technically yes you will, but a base with an actual Type-S 6-speed will destroy it.

Isn't the 5th gear from a base tranny the same ratio as the type-S 6th?

Thanks for the link.. It's actually not a bad deal if it included EVERYTHING needed as it says but I highly doubt it..

Quote:
We include all necessary parts to do so, and we do recommend professional installation.
The kit does include the very popular TSX 6th gear.
All the necessary parts include
6th gear main and counter
Tsx 6th gear needle bearing & distance collar
Synchros
6spd forks
6spd shifter mechanism or parts to convert 5spd mechanism to a 6spd one..

If and only IF all those are included, then it's not so bad..

Yes but the kit provides you with a TSX 6th gear, which is lower than them all.

Nothing.. Just put the tranny in and bolt everything back up....

that's unless you're looking to change the clutch/pressure plate setup..

No. none of that needs to change. Just make sure it matches up to the same year range of your base model... Either 02-04 or 05-06 depending on your year.

Spark Plug Wires??? Have you taken a look at your engine bay? You don't have those... And there's no need for you to change the coils. They are more than sufficient for your car.

As far as your cams, you should probably do some research on your engine and the potential of it. All of that can be done here on this site...

ps.... Don't change the cams...

Well yeah I figured you were new to K series.. That's fine and all.. But yeah you have spark plugss, and coil packs.. And the coil packs will last and provide plenty of spark.

As far as your engine, Most people don't modify base models much because those engines don't produce much power and can't take as much of a beating unless built up... And it's not worth it to dump money into that particular setup... And if you put cams in, you will need that Kpro.

So what you're saying is if you have a type S engine harness ,type S 6 speed transmission w solenoid , it'll bolt onto the k20a3 with out any problems ? New to K series , been reading a lot of threads not sure if I haven't found the right thread yet, sorry if the question has already been asked

I have a type S body w 6 speed lsd transmission , ECU , engine harness , just a blown k20a2 engine , looking for the cheapest route honestly , the base model 5 speed engine I can get is fairly cheap here as for anything else in the area is expensive part and engine wise.

I don't think any of these people are active on here anymore...
I know that the A3 will go right in, not sure on the harness aside from the intake runner valve. You'll need to drop another $700 on Kpro to make the swap work though.
