    put it in the car and do 80 mph in 5th gear and tell me what rpm it sits at.. i can tell you then.. or you can look for bar codes or stamps on the casing

    unfortunately it was honda's biggest mistake putting the tranny number/code on a sticker on the tranny, they almost always fall off.
    The oonly way you are going to be able to tell is to put it in a drive it.
    I can tell you right now tho, the b18b engine never came mated with a cable tranny, since cable's last year was 93, and the b18b came out either 94 or 96 (I cant remember, it's late), not caying that you can't use it, it's just not what that engine came with.
