    y do you want an automatic? The gearing sucks for them, Honda puts extremly shitty cams in automatics, and you will be missing the joy of driving a stick. Do an automatic to manual swap or sell your car and by one with a stick then do the swap.

    I don't want the automatic, It my buddy's car, He hates driving stick. I have the motor in the car hanging from a lift. It is a tight fit, but it does fit. I plan on using hasport drives and rear mount(custom engione bracket), and fabing a tranny mount. I have done a few b16 crx swaps so i understand what has to be done, the automatic is just a curveball. I was was hoping someone has done one before to give a few tips(needed. bad!!) The real pain in the ass will seem to be the wiring for the automatic tranny, Thanks
