    There's some cable transmissions that have really nice gear ratios (mainly the JDM ones and the B17 GSR transmission). As stated before, only reason to go hydro is if you want to run aftermarket components; though I believe one of those cable transmission can use hydro parts(I'm not 100% on that so don't take my word for it).

    As for flywheel weight, 10-13lbs is ideal for DD and drag racing. Lighter is more suited for road course/autocross.

    the best would be a cable b16 tranny, it would have the shortest gears of the b series cable trannys. the best hydro tranny would be the ITR tranny. but it really depends on what you plan on doing to the engine. for boost, i'd recommend a hydro gsr or if you can get a cable gsr, stick with that. for all motor the ITR and b16 have the shortest gear ratios. only thing is that the 5th gear is pretty short, like 4500 rpm at 70-75.

    *cable B16 out of the JDM Integras and B17 Integras.

    ITR and hydro B16 have short gear spacing but the ITR is actually shorter due to the shorter FD. In other words, RPM drop is similar but with the B16 you'd spend more time in each gear and each gear would have a higher top speed for a given RPM.

    For boost though, the cable B16 would actually be nice. Has a taller FD(4.266 or something around there) but still has short RPM drops. As for what's the best; really depends on what you're looking for. For me, DD with a short transmission is pretty annoying.

    That's the tallest transmission I believe, good for daily driving and I guess high-power turbo setups.
