The NSX transaxle transmission is a brilliant component of the NSX. With use,
the syncronizers, bearings, and seals degrade. Worn syncros cause grinding
during shifting (as the syncro no longer can match the speed between the input
shaft and countershaft), worn bearings cause noise and vibration, and seals
result in fluid leaks. It is especially important to not continue to drive as
the gears become difficult to engage as prolonged wear will cause gear damage.
Typically, a NSX transmission typically requires an overhaul around 80-120,000
miles depending on use.
ScienceofSpeed disassembles, inspects, cleans, and measures components. All wear
components (syncros, hubs, bearings, spring rings, snap rings, and oil seals)
are replaced with new. During assembly, tolerances are measured, and factory
specified parameters such as break-away torque is measured and adjusted.
For customers with existing 6-spd transmissions, ScienceofSpeed offers the
Honda NA2 NSX-R Input Shaft for 6-spd transmissions. This allows a twin-spline
clutch to be installed with a 6-spd transmission original equipped to be
installed with a single disc clutch. There is no charge for installing the shaft
when a 6-spd transmission is rebuilt by ScienceofSpeed.
