    Don't ever change a car from manual to auto, that's just gay. The auto LS transmission has some of the longest gears out of any Honda transmission ever. It's an absolute dog for acceleration. 5-speed LS trannies aren't all that expensive. I'd sell the auto and get a 5-speed.

    Well, it kinda depends on what you want to do with the motor. If you're just going to leave it as a stock LS, then the LS tranny would be fine for you. If you're thinking about doing an LS/VTEC in the future, then yeah, you may want to go for a YS1 or some other transmission that was originally paired to a DOHC VTEC motor.

    As far as ease of installation, any B-Series motor will bolt up to any B-Series tranny, so installation should be essentially the same no matter what tranny you go with. The only thing you really need to worry about is finding a transmission that's geared to work well with the motor you're using.
