    What engine was the tranny originally attached to? Or, let me rephrase, what transmission do you currently have?

    Wow, thread came back from the dead, nice. Anyway, looking back on this, I don't really understand how the tranny isn't a match. The B20 you put in should be pretty similar to the factory B18 in terms of powerband. If it is the original transmission, then it should match up pretty well to the engine's characteristics.

    Keep in mind that we're talking about small 4 cylinder engines here. I mean yes, you wouldn't really want to drive a V8 that redlines someone around 5-6k rpms at 4k rpms consistently on the highway, but this isn't really unusual for a Honda engine. My 97 Integra LS sits at about 3500 to 4k rpms when I'm on the highway, and my gas mileage doesn't suffer.

    If you're getting bad mileage you might want to look in to a tune-up...

    No, it's no problem. Usually it's some noob that stumbles across an old thread and posts without looking at the date. This was the original poster that came back to update, which is good. I was just surprised...
