    Hey guys,

    I swapped out my worn 5gear tranny on my 1996 180SX (SR20DET) and replaced it with a S14 SR20DET transmisson.

    They look basically the same and should be pnp am I right? Now I've got a weird noise when I engage the clutch. I thought the release bearing is fucked, so I ordered a new S14 release bearing and put that in. I noticed that the S14 bearing is slightly thinner than S13 SR.

    Unfortunately nothing has changed. The noise only comes when engage the clutch. I can put in gears etc.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks !

    One sensor connector was different but we changed that so it was just fine. I dont get it what this noise causes lol.
