    I know a manual transmission, is the best way to go about it, but I wanted to know if this would work for a daily driver? I was thinking about, using an LS Automatic Transmission, and a first generation B16a automatic ecu. How would I even go about wiring this up? Would this ecu work? Thanx.

    you would want to use a JDM B16, or if you can find one B18c auto tranny ( yes the JDM GSR had a auto available) trans, and ecu that would be the best way to go, you could use a LS tranny but it wouldn't really suite be worth it since its not meant to be coupled with a Vtec engine

    if your gonna build the ultimate street setup, why ruin it with auto transmission? get a automatic b18b or somthing.

    It's more of a daily driver, than a street car or race car, traffic in Houston,Tx sucks!!! I spend alotta time in it. I just want a nice hatch that is automatic and air conditioning to cruz in and belive me, I've got something allot nicer for the track! :D.

    if its a daily driver, and you deal with traffic, why build a "sports" car?

    IMO, you're wasting your time and money.

    buy a $1000 daily driver/beater
    and then do a swap in the honda.

    :withstupid: :werd: i live in san francisco and i use my car as a daily driven. im pretty sure that traffic over here in the bay area is worse than in texas so if i can deal with it, and with no AC, im pretty sure you can. Whats the point of having a fast car if its an automatic? you like getting compliments like "wow, you sure can step on that gas pedal pretty qucik and shift out of park into drive fast"

    I play in rush hour on I-10 and 610 all the time with a crazy clutch and a nicely tuned manual car. Learn to drive stick well, and stop/go traffic will be a cinch.

    5speed and traffic is normal driving, auto blows learn to drive.

    Don't bother with an automatic setup, your taking two steps forward and then one back.
