I probably should have thought of this before... but the final gear on the VR4... is it different than the final gear on the GSX?
Yep, I shoulda known. Different ratios. Damn Damn Damn. So... I have a '91 VR4 transmission. Anybody have a good '95 GSX tranny in the northern california area that wants to trade?
Or maybe a VR4 Rear Diff?
Alright, so I just finished emailing John Shepard, and figured out what my problem was. My shop manuals (dsm backup cd) for the transmission are for a '97-'99, which has different ratios than the '89-96 did. So, it was messing me all up. The Galant VR4 transmission will not bolt to my engine mounts without a bellhousing swap, but the gear ratios in the transmission differentials are the same final drive ratios as the transmission in the 95 and 96 2G as well as all the 1G AWDs. So, now I just gotta put my bellhousing on the VR4 transmission, and I will be all set.
*whew* what a pain.
