    Probably any 5 sp that came in an EX 96-00...I don't think you can put a b series tranny on a d motor.

    either an EX or a del Sol SI tranny are your best bets because they are the shortest gearing for the d-series. If you go with a CX or DX tranny, your gearing will suck. 75 in 2nd gear is never fun.

    Remember when doing this swap, your going to need an aftermarket top tranny mount to make up the diffrence.

    i have a 99 ex, and when i did my swap i used a 97 dx tranny but you should get an ex or si tranny to start instead of doing it then swapping tranny's later.
    i got all of my mounts, clutch assembly and brake pedal, and master cylinder from find used parts .
