    I have a 93 5 speed EX that needs another transmission. I have a 97 Prelude 5 speed laying around. Will the 97 trans mate up correctly and work? I can't find this info on this site or google. Also, are the gear ratios similar, or will the car become uninspiring to drive?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    The Prelude's transmission should actually have shorter gears, so it might even become "more inspiring" to drive...

    Thanks for the replies. What clutch and pressure plate should be used when installing the 97 Prelude trans to the 93 Accord flywheel? Also, I had a 98 Prelude and I know they had a much higher rpm range than the 93 Accord. I suppose I'll go through each gear sooner, since I'll be up in the rpm band sooner. I'll probably be in an higher rpm in most gears than normal, and highway speeds will be a higher rpm too.

    Does anyone have a chart showing the gear ratios for each transmission?

    Thanks Again,
    Dan

    Check the reference section here, I'm pretty sure there's an article on gear ratios...
