pro's = none
con's = Will scratch roof, dent
lol, funny, but not productive.


Pros will be newer tranny
cons is cost

Question though, are they pretty much the same transmission, just the different years have a different variant of the k20 (200hp motor)? If it is (or isnt), you could be buying an abused tranny, so there could be some risk.

might I ask, but why do you want to replace your tranny?

the 05-06 has the Type R Final Drive. So if you put it in an older model I think you will need something (a sensor) so that the speedo will work and you will be sacraficing top speed for acceleration. 05/06 > 02-04 in acceleration but 05-06<02-04 in top speed. Thats the only difference I am almost 100% sure.

no shit.

you're gonna need a brand new flame suit in this forum
wasn't trying to start anything negative, I found the comment hilarious. But as I said, a bit of a useless ramble for his question.

ok, sinister-s found the performance pro's and cons. Faster accel, but slower top speed for the stock transmissions. I guess the big question from here would be, is that accel difference enough to spring up some $$$ for a newer, but still used transmission. A reflash or something would give more bang for the buck, unless you really f*cked up your current transmission.

you don'e have the power to run out your top gear in the 04 or the 06. The 06 is better becouse of the FD 4.7 to 4.3 and the third gear issues that have been solved.

I think he was refering to the 02-04 body style type-s transmissions to the 05-06 type-s transmission. He mentioned he found a complete 05-06 transmission for cheap, and wanted to see if it was feasible to use on his older car.

I run a Z1 tranny in my 02. There aren't any problems with it, if that's what you're asking.
