    gawd... that was a guess but I wasn't really sure, bc it looks as if it has a rear shifter built to the back... dang... but its a 5 speed? hmmm... BLAH, i'm lost... lol

    he should had used this...
    this is the one I want to use when I do my rwd civic, its a 9" ford IRS. Either that or a corvette IRS... they hold more power...

    Thats definately not an FF tranny, it is a RWD transaxle like the one they use in the C5 and C6 Corvette and many other front engine/rear tranny cars. And FWIW, I would much rather use that setup than a Corvette rear suspension any day...that composite mono-leaf spring is an antique design.

    actually it is a FF tranny. its the stock acura tranny for that engine. i remember how the acura confused people because the engine was placed like a rwd but it was fwd. its pretty much a driveshaft connected from the clutch to the transmission in that car.

    No that is not the stock Vigor tranny, which is what you must be thinking of as that is the only FF longitudinally mounted engine Honda has brought to the US and that was an inline 5 cylinder not a V6.

    so he seperated the engine and transmission. ran a sort of driveshaft before the tranny to the tranny in the rear? that sounds stupid to me. and he wont get 20k for it.
