    There were some automatic B16s as well if you want even shorter gears. Honestly, I don't know if it's really worth it though. You'll probably pay at least twice what you would for another LS tranny, and they can be a pain to wire up as well...

    Wire up a trans? He said his wife's Integra is already an autotragic...

    But I agree on the cost. You'll just be paying for a more expensive trans that's not going to make the car fast enough to be worth the price and you'll hurt you're MPG's in the process.

    IMO, just get the trans and torque converter rebuilt (or buy a rebuilt torque converter, they are like $80)

    I'm sorry, I should have been more specific. Some of those automatic B-series cars had an additional control module for the transmission aside from the main ECU. If that control module is not included with the swap, then he'd be in trouble. I've read a number of stories of those TCMs not being included with the swap and people go through Hell trying to figure out how to wire up the tranny without it...
