    If the tranny is cable you are better off not getting the transmission. I wonder if its the regular 93 transmission not the gsr tranny. I haven't kept up on new Honda products but I think someone might make a hydro-cable conversion kit but when you factor in the price of this, you are better off just getting a hydro tranny. You will have to do some conversion between obd1-obd2.
    Another thing to consider depending on local laws where you live, it might not be legal to put a 95 engine into a 00 car. Again this varies on your state and if they would ever check this out.
    Are you getting this car dirt cheap? Because you might be better off just getting an ob2 swap with the tranny as a package compared to trying to get this to work. This depends on experience, how much down time you can have with the car, and how much cash you have. Always save up extra since little things will come up along the way and nickel and dime you. Also make sure you do a complete tune up and install a new timing belt and water pump unless you can guarantee these were done recently as a cheap insurance.
