    Yea i saw that on k20a. See the problem is basically when you get traction with all that torque it put so much stress on the drivetrain the gear just snaps. He keeps breaking 2nd b/c hes probably getting traction in 2nd where most turbo guys on street tires dont get traction till 4th hence why we all break 4th.

    SPAZ if you plan on staying supercharged the frana 1/2nd might be a good deal for you and save you some money.

    In my car I have major issues with spinning. 1-2-3 gears are all useless. Except on slicks I get traction in 2nd now. I would like to upgrade/downgrade to a 5 speed trans soon and keep my 4.7 FD. What do you guys think about that setup? And soon I want the 1-2 gears from FRANA.

    I haven't heard of main shafts being on backorder, could be just in your area though. Toss up info and details on your tranny rebuild, a DIY for replacing a gear would be sick!

    I've never bought one brand new. I would find someone on a forum who's got a gearset and just buy the whole set. So now I have spares gears. I don't see why a main shaft would be on back order.

    Deff. Will take some pics to show how the gears come off and assembly i wish i hadnt taken the case apart already so i could have taken pics of disassembly...and i never thought about gettin one off some one on the forum lol. Im sure a next time will come so i might as well prepare for it i suppose but thanks for the input guys and i will start a thread on the gear swap when my main shaft arrives.

    DIY would be great man, I'm sure many people could definitely use it. The more info we have, the more useful the forum is and that's all based on forum member contributions. And search for the mainshaft on forums, post it on the boostedk20 facebook. You never know what you'll find.

    Honestly there was someone on clubrsx who had a si trans I could ask him how much for the main shaft if you'd like?
