    Hi kids, im new to honda's, pickd up a 93 Del Sol S. Going to eventually do a big build, but for now just want to throw in an SOHC V-Tec for a little extra kick. I found a D16Y8 setup with an S40 tranny for a good price. My question is, what tranny would be better? the S40 or the one that is already in my car? If I can save the 100-150 bucks by not buying the S40 I'll do that but I wanted to ask the pro's

    I don't know all the transmission codes off hand, but if your S40 is the 96-00 EX transmission, then the ratios should be:

    1 3.250
    2 1.909
    3 1.250
    4 0.909
    5 0.702
    R 3.153
    F 4.250

    Your stock transmission should be:

    1 3.250
    2 1.761
    3 1.172
    4 0.909
    5 0.702
    R 3.153
    F 4.058

    So the S40 if I have everything right will be a little bit faster, maybe 10% shorter on all the gears, and slightly better ratios in 2nd and 3rd.
