    i don't really know what you are asking. if you have a crx you would have to use an si tranny from another crx, and if you have a 5th gen civic you would have to use an si tranny from another 5th gen. crx trannies are cable clutch, 5th gen and newer are all hydro.

    so if you are just using crx or 4th gen civic trannies then yes they will bolt up.

    and if you are using 5th gen or newer civic's and trannies then those will bolt up.

    but a 4th gen will not work with a 5th gen and vice versa.

    if you have your hands on all the si stuff, just use it cause ithink they came with bigger brakes anyway. and i think the hubs are bigger so if you ever went b-series it would be one less thing to worry about. not sure tho.

    The DX and Si axles are interchangeable- the hubs are the same, the axle length is the same, and the inner mount for the axles is the same too. The only real difference between the CRX DX and CRX Si transmissions is the final drive ratio- everything else is the same.

    All the CRX front brakes are the same size. The Integra brakes require you to swap the knuckles and everything over, so it's not just a bolt-on affair with the discs and calipers. Some people claim that it throws your caster all out of whack, but I haven't seen proof of it.
