Also i was wandering am I lossing that much power by sticking with the B18b tranny, my funds are very limited(high schooler). I was also wandering how much shit am i getting myself into?

    UHHH well I have pretty good mechanical knowledge, I have never done a swap before, the closest thing i have ever done is dropping a 350 in an S-10 well either way we both know these are two very different types of swap but thanks for the help.

    hey I can help some the wiring isn't that bad as long as you have some patience As far as the ls tranny if your racing quite often it might hurt some because the gsr like to stay in vtec when shifting thats what makes the motor so responsive but if you use the ls tranny and you are racing whether it be on the street or at the track you can put smaller tires on the front to accomodate for the lack of close gear ratio in the tranny hope this helps Good luck on your swap if you do it just use the head and intake make it a ls/vtec more torque and power now you have your cake and can eat it too

    If you want to spen the money then buy the tranny but if your on a budget because of school buy a lightened flywheel I just did the swap to a90 crx and that made a night and day change.I promise you will be happy with it hey sleepr crx nice quarter mile times my buddy's went 14.0 98 mph

    IMO....Sell the GSR short block and Turbo the LS. To answer your question, that is correct. Don't worry about using the LS tranny along with your GSR motor. It shouldn't hurt you too much, and if you do plan on turboing later on....the LS tranny will be perfect for a boosted GSR. Good Luck

    huh? :huh: . if he sells the short block... then wtf is he supposed to do with the head and whatever else he might have (header, IM...)? and even if he were to sell the gsr that he has, he then wouldn't have enough $$$ to get any turbo kit that would be worth it. and if i were him, i would save until i could afford a b16/gsr tranny. the ls tranny really does blow nuts for NA.
