Bought my 06 type s 2 years ago, a month later 3rd started grinding. I changed the trans fluid and it didn't help... I decided my synchros are probably shot. Since I have been rev matching and double clutching to get into 3rd gear fine, but the other day my clutch went out. I decided now is the time to get the synchros done too so I took it to a transmission shop and they gave me a quote for $1600 Stage 1 clutch, resurfaced flywheel, and full trans overhaul parts and labor included. I jumped on it. Well they called me today and said that the mainshaft is destroyed and it ruined my case so it needs a whole new transmission and it's going to be $3600! I'm calling bullsh** I drove the car to their shop fine. I'm not paying them to do it, but I have to go tow it tomorrow. Long story short I need to either rebuild my transmission myself ( a task I think I am capable of doing ) or find a new trans. Any recommendations? What transmissions are direct swaps? If I can find a good price on a type r imported transmission is it a direct swap? Thanks. I have researched but I am working on a very limited time frame here so any advice would be appreciated guys. Also if I do the rebuild myself I want to build it to hold more power so I can turbo it so suggestions on parts and options for that would be appreciated too.
