    Since the 1991 4WD wagon runs the same D16A6 that I have in my 91 CRX, I would imagine that the 4WD tranny would bolt right up as a swap.

    I know I'd be wasting my time trying to run a 4WD in my CRX. What I'm curious about though is the LSD aspect of the six speed tranny from the wagon.

    Would this be a viable junkyard swap?

    Hmmm...

    I'm still searching for this hypothetical 4wd wagon. I know they built them, but haven't seen any on the road.

    How rare was this option?

    Well, nothing found within a hour of me...
    Thanks anyhow.

    Does anybody know how drop-in-able this tranny would be?

    it would bolt into the car using the 4wd tranny mounts - you would need to use the 4WD axles - it also uses an intermediate shaft like the ZC transmissions - it has terrible gear ratios and it is not LSD - gear ratios are:
    super low - 4.512
    1st - 3.384
    2nd - 1.95
    3rd - 1.275
    4th - 0.941
    5th - 0.783
    Final Drive - 4.428

    since it uses the intermediate shaft, the shaft may not bolt to your block unless your A6 has the holes tapped for it (some did and some didn't)

    Huh. Thank you very much for the info.

    No limited slip, you say? Damn.

    Well, at least I can finally put this crazy idea to rest.
    Thanks again.
