    Don't get another ls trans. They have long gears designed for gas mileage, and don't respond well to a b16's low torque output, and peaky power curve. Find a cable trans for a b16, or find a cable trans from a 92-93 integra gsr

    Not necessarily. B16 refers to a motor. Lots of Honda cars came with B16s (i.e. Del Sol VTEC, 99-00 Civic Si, lots of Japanese Civics, etc.).

    Forget about which motor and which tranny goes in what specific car. What you want is a short-geared tranny, so look for a transmission that was originally paired with a B16 or B18C.

    He has a crx, which means he needs a cable trans. 94-01 GSR's, Del Sol Vtec, and 99-00 si trannies WONT work because they are hydraulic. The only other option for a cable short geared trans is a 1st gen b16 cable trans imported from Japan or from someone who already has one here.

    Good point about the cable transmission. He started talking about Del Sols so I forgot that he's dealing with an older car.
