Hi Eric, I hope things are well at your end; hopefully you are closer in finding a new shop.
I am on a transmission “mission” – The tranny is out of a 1995 Honda Civic VX hatchback (high millage engine/car), specifically a “D” series (P20 / A000 ). I bought it new and put over 400,000 miles on it; never did a clutch replacement; all original. Just performed the regular maintenance i.e. timing belt every 100,000 miles, oil stuff like that.
But the clutch fork (in Bell housing) broke, so I had to remove the transmission to get to it (thanks with your video help). While the tranny is out, it was highly recommended for me do a basic rebuild, such as new seals, bearings, Synchros.
*** The “ MISSION ” (need help/question} – with forever high gas prices, now also I would like to change my 5th gear ratio – (go longer/higher). My current 5th gear is 0.702, I would like to change it to 0.600 or as close as possible to that. ***
There are no other ‘official’ gears offered, other than 0.702. Others are said to have thought outside the box and went into other cars/trannys; obviously, it has to physically fit. Perhaps there are custom manufactures out there making these things.
To find 0.600 gear ratio for my ‘D’ series (P20 / A000 ) would greatly appreciated!
In addition, through bolt-on components such as exhaust system, distributor, intake and maybe even a small turbo, can we achieve 20, 30 or 40 more horsepower without losing gas millage.
Do we generally lose gas millage with a turbo??
