What If Only Wanted To Have A JDM 2nd Gear?

10 December 2006
I don't race my car & I've never even dropped the clutch in the 12 years I've had the car but I'm about to change my clutch and fix a very slight 3rd gear grind. I've already purchased all the parts, including low mile complete transmission internals. I have all the internals as a backup for when the transmission will be opened & which ever parts look like they have the least amount of wear will go in the transmission before closing it up.

Now, I find the cost of the JDM short gears too be too expensive to add on the parts that I've already purchased, even with buying from www.Amayama.com. If I find the only thing that annoys with me slightly with this car during regular driving (no racing), is when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. So let's say I ONLY wanted to improve that, what parts would I ended for my 1994 5 speed? I'm guessing 2nd and 3rd JDM short gears?

What else? Part #'s would be great.

By chance nobody would have a 4.55 R&P lying around?
