    You're gonna have trouble getting the b16 cable trans to work in any 92+ civic. From '92 and on, all civics had hydraulic transmissions. You will have to buy some kind of conversion kit to make it work. If I were you, I'd sell the cable trans and try to find a newer hydraulic b16 unit from a vtec del sol or 99-00 civic si.

    Any 94+ integra trans will work; however the ls trannies have long gearing which kills acceleration. The gsr trans will suite you well; however it still has slightly longer gearing than the da gsr trans.

    The del sol and 99-00 si trannies will match the characteristics of the stock da gsr trans.
