Aftermarket/Performance Transmission

Hello all 2G CL owners I have a 2003 CLS and have run into the dreaded transmission issue for the second time. The good this is that the second tranny lasted 90,000 miles. I'm making this thread basically to see if anyone knows of a good aftermarket tranny. Specifically a sequential auto. I have the 5 speed auto at the moment.

Sorry, no such a critter. Your best (and pretty much only) option for putting a better than stock transmission in your car is to source a transmission from a 2006-2007 V6 Honda Accord with a manufacturing code of BAYA. Do a search here, there are plenty of threads on the issue and the swap.

Yeah I've read up on the AV6 swap I just want something that 100% bulletproof no matter how much power I throw at it. Is it possible to drop the lsd in the AV6 tranny??

Have you tried a 6 Speed Manual transmission?

Yeah I've looked into the 6 speed swap and it's kinda expensive but I'm trying to stay auto with this build I got a 5 speed ek civic that I'm using for a turbo build. It would be sick if the 6 speed auto that was in the 4th gen TL would work but idk of anyone that's tried or if it's even possible.

You aren't going to find everything you're looking for. One one hand you're talking about being bullet proof, no matter how much power you throw at it (which costs a lot of money for this vehicle) and then on the other you say that the swap option is kind of expensive. Expensive and high-performing or cheap and low-quality; pick one or the other.
