    I have no clue where you got the idea that your LX tranny would bolt up to a B16. With the exception of the F and H-Series motors, Honda engines and transmissions from different series do not bolt up to each other.

    Plus, as you mentioned, the LX in stock form is an economy car, the long gears of the LX tranny wouldn't suit a high-revving B16 at all.
