correct -- the turbo trans is alot different fron the n/a trans and IMO the diff couldn't be easily swapped

How fast your car running with all your mods ?? what type of cars have you taken out ?? any helps on diy mods that will help me beat honda swaps ?? I raced against my cuz b16 integra and beat him just with my stock motor while he has a basic street set up.

Don't email it to him, just post it right here. We used to have a FAQ that walked you through prepping an MR2 tranny for use in a FWD application, including which crossmembers and mounts you needed to use. I have no idea what happened to it, because it isn't in the archives :(

Also, please answer this question in the post in the 5th gen board so the topic can be searched.

:stupid: Correct me if I'm wrong but don't you need the GT-Four Crossmembers to fit a mr2 lsd tranny. Other wise you have to cut some of it out. I noticed the difference when I looked under my 5s and my 3 s swap. LSD is the hotness! Other day, I was pulling out of a parking lot and there was alot of sand on the left, so I just wanted to test it. So I gun it while my driver side tire was over the sand, my pass side tire was a solid pavement. Anyways the car didn't pull or slide in any direction. :bigthumbu
