Default Supercharged transmissions interchangeable?

Well, the car needs a transmission and I can get a good SSEi trans for $100, but I wasn't sure if it'll work in my SE.

Thanks to anyone who knows

What years? The final drive ratio will be diffierent, screwing up shifting and the speedo/odo.

No, axles may be different, you'll need programming etc.

Find the RPO code on your spare tire cover and put the same trans in.

What parts would I have to swap? The trans is dirt cheap and the only thing keeping me from selling the car. If I have to spend any more than that, I'd be looking into a beater.

The axels actually should be the same as far as fitment goes. I swapped an axel from my '93 SSEi parts car into my neighbors '95 SE. That was four months ago and they drive it every day with no problems.

As far as anything else goes I am not sure, but I would agree with the gearheads and find a trans that came out of a non supercharged car with the same gear ratio as yours

Things that would be different and remember I'm not 100% sure on all of this..

Passenger side axle may be different
Gear ratio (that'* in there...)
Other internals that make it HD vs regular may be ok to stay with.

The gearing is the biggest part.

The main reason I want this tranny, is because it'* $100, and any local junkyard wants atleast $200 some want a lot more.

This car is my winter car, and I can't justify buying a $200+ trans, ~$40-50 in fluids, replacing the bad wheel bearing for $75, then doing all the labor, when a few hundred more could find me some 4cyl jap car that gets great gas mileage.

That'* not including all the other problems the car has like horrible gas mileage, starting problems, etc..

The more I think about this, the more it is a hassle.

Anyone want the car? $300!
