    The real problem,is that it is a 4x4.You need a 94+ integra tranny or 99-00 si.

    B) im aware that the crv's are 4x4. im trying to use my stock dx hydro tranny. will it bolt up to the jdm b20b ? i heard b series motor to b series trannys are fine as long as they are either both cable or both hydro. will someone give me a good answer ?

    No your stock tranny is a D series and they do not bolt up.The ones I suggested are going to be relatively easy to find and you could probably sell the CRV tranny for most if not all the cost.

    yeah, you just answered it yourself. Your stock tranny is a D and the new (CRV) donor is a B, IR the two won't mate up! You need a B series FWD tranny, preferably hydro, since that it what you currently have. If your cheap, HASport has a Hydro to Cable converter, but you will do better with the CRV or a GSR tranny from any year CRV or 94+ GSR. And to the person who said the CRV is a 4WD....WRONG...more CRV's are FWD, only a few are 4WD.
