I've searched and did find a post that shows usable transmission numbers for or cars. My question is, what transmission work without a rear end swap? I am the new owner of #47/1000 to go along with my 91 ggsx

91-94 dsm awd, you also need to make sure the spline count on the new trans is the same as your current one or the transfer case wont go on.

Only Autos are different. DSM and USDM GVR4s share the same ratios. If you have a 22 spline trans, then you would need one from a '90 DSM or you just get a 23 spline tcase and trans from 91-94 DSM.

I had a 3 bolt LSD rear diff from a DSM in my VR4. You might get your ratio information mixed up with the GGSX stuff.

If you want to split hairs, 91-96 AWD transmissions will work. 97-99 have a different final drive and will bind.

It's incredibly easy to swap the output shaft.. a few bolts and a circlip.

I think i have about a dozen spare output shafts kicking around, in case anyone ever needs one.

The 22 spline transmission output shaft has been discontinued. I tried to get one for my tranny rebuild but they are no more.

You can still get new 23 spline shafts though.
