I was thinking about buying one...

I heard it is LSD from the factory.. ready to be bolted up to the 3sgte...

But what about axles? This isn't a USDM transmission... so where would I get axles or anything else? If something went wrong with it.. I couldn't really fix it.. because no parts would be available here...

I really want to go the LSD route when I do the 3sgte swap...

Any recommendations?

3sgte, I assume you are using the LSD version of the MR2 tranny... right? What ya pay for that and how is the gearing.. specially 5th gear on the highway.. I hate the S53 cuz on the highway that bitch is humming away at rediculous RPM's... the automatic celica runs much lower in final gear.

its shorter gearing, I'm LoVin IT, paid 1500cnd locally for it, with axles & all hardware needed for the swap

everywhere i read, people say the mr2 tranny has LONGER gearing. its a good tranny and worth having for the lsd, but the normal s53-54 has shorter gearing and will make for a faster car.

sorry your right, I haven't driven my car in what seems like forever, longer gearing 1 though 4, but I think 5th is shorter

No, 5th is longer. I think it's got a good 500 rpm on the s53. IOW.. 3000rpm S53... 2500 rpm lsd tranny.

I agree, the MR2 I was in had a 3rd Gen 3SGTE and it was revving at 2500rpm at 100km/h

Ok, well I don't know what fucking transmission to go with.. I want something that has a long 5th gear.. I'm sick of sitting on the highway .. doing 80mph @ 4 fucking thousand RPM...

I was driving my buddies WRX and that thing has way to tall of gears.. fuckin doing 60 in 2nd gear at like 5000rpm... 60 in 4th gear is like 3000rpm.. no fucking joke.


I need help to decide on what fucking transmission to use... preferably something a bit cheaper.. something I can put LSD into... and that has a pretty tall 5th gear.

please help!
