Transmission questions for 3sge and 3sfe

    So. I have a gts and a gt. The gts has a bad syncro in second gear. The gt has a very bad 3rd gear, but all others are fine. I wanted to know if the s53 in the gts is the same as the gt. I wanted to put a new/used tranny into my gts and put the gts transmission into the gt. Will there be any problems? Same transmission? 5th gear in the gt seems way taller than the gts, but that seems like the only difference.

    Thanks guys/girls.

    different trannys for teh ge and fe but they are interchangable, and yes quicker gears on teh fe tranny it should bolt right up but im not sure on what else is required as i have not done it yet...id like to though :)

    The GTS tranny will have to be Modified to mount up with the GT- The starter is on the opposite side. There is a write-up somewhere ill research it ..

    lol, I totally forgot about the starter. Probably wouldnt be hard to flip the starter, but yeah. I was looking for a quick fix. Thanks guys. I will just keep skipping/holding 3rd gear. 8)

    LOLOL Thanks!!

    And Noobified I have been Quoted $1000 to change some of the rings in the tranny- seeing I had the same Problem!!
    But I called a JunkYard and told them I needed a Trany with the least amount of miles possible- I ended up getting a Tranny with 78000 Miles- and for only 250 bucks so try your luck with a wrecking yard its better than 3rd popping out of gear hen your accelrating lololol

    Thanks for the advice. I was going to get a junk yard transmission with low miles. how can I tell if the transmission is smooth? Just play with the shift link levers?

    Oh ya, the 3rd gear is pretty bad... I hate the grind it makes.
