    keeping the car automatic limits your possibilities
    youre basically looking at swapping in another d-series
    or an LS swap (b18b1)
    any auto d-series tranny will work for a temporary replacement

    Check your trannny fluid level, better yet replace the fluid to factory specs. ;)

    Low tranny fluid will cause slippage. An automatic tranny is a hydraulic machine that functions and is reliant on fluid. :huh:
    Of course there is more to it than that, but it is a very common symptom.

    If you go with an LS/b18 swap you will need a Bseries tranny as well.
    Unless you want to deal with the headaches of adapters from d to b series.

    I wouldn't bother swapping your engine. Your only automatic B-series transmission choice (that's readily available in the US anyway) is the Integra LS transmission, and it's not exactly geared for acceleration. I would just keep the D16Z6 that you already have and put together a turbo setup for it...
