Default putting rsx type s gears into tsx. both 6speed.

both trans have 6 speeds. i search and could not find what i was looking for.

i know you can put tsx gears into the rsx. but what would i need to put rsx gears into the tsx. what bearings would i need, ? if any? what other things may i need?

thanks for the help

i broke my tsx second gear . all i did was swap the whole rsx internals into my tsx casing and i had a spacer behind the speed sensor . if you dont put the spacer in correctly you gonna break it and i broke 4 of them before getting it right

Pretty sure you use w/e bearing match the case, and I do know for sure you want to reuse the TSX shift forks... otherswise its a direct swap. Make sure you check clearances as listed in the service manual.

what if you interchanged some of them between the tsx and rsx-s to get a better gear ratio... i heard of some people doing this on k20, but never got the exact ultimate setup.

So whats your question? lol I am not sure if the shafts are the same for the gears to fit if you pick and choose between the 2. I know more about B series stuff my turbo car had a B16 1-3 and GSR 4-5 in a GSR case, but I had to use the B16 shafts to make it work.

The ideal ratio's will be easy to determine with one of the many online honda gear calculators.
