ok i just picked up an 98 ex coupe and sounds/feels like my trans is goin out. well with that thought a local guy had a y8 trans layin around and i got it for free just needed to pick it up. now the bad part, he said that the car the trans was pulled from was a theft recovery and the car was dumped in a canal and so the trans was under water, he also continued to say he pulled it apart and that everything looked fine. now for my question, ive never dealt with a trans that was under water, is the trans a big paper weight now? salvageable? being i got it for free im not at any loss just wondering if its usable. pics will be up in the a.m. when i tear it apart.

its probibally fine as long as it doesnt have a rust. make sure it gets well cleaned and lubricated when putting it back together. Now if you would have said an automatic transmission that would have been a different story.
