    do they make a manual valve body for auto trannies so i can shift my own gears? i want something like an art carr (www.artcarr.com) shifter for my B18 (if anyone knows what that is...). if anyone knows where i can get one or has even heard of them let me know. thanks a lot, later

    Cause the nice thing about a manual valve body B is that you can leave it in third or OD and the tranny will shift on it own, or you can manually shift the vehicle like a standard without the clutch.

    yeah but for drag racing, nothing shifts faster than an automatic with a shift kit.

    ya know...if i had 750 bucks...then i would...so why not make my auto shift faster, let my clutch engage faster leading to faster ETs and lots of losing cars!

    with a manual valve body the tranny wont shift if you put it in drive...with a manual valve body you hav to shift every gear manually

    where can i get a shift kit for my tranny? thanks a lot

    you all misunderstood him


    honda automatic trannys SUCK

    they're notoriously weak- if you're going to put a reasonable amount of power through that slushbox you should think about sending it to level 10 first

    or else learn how to drive a manual transmission

    i can drive a manual...my ranger is a 5 speed the jeep is a 5 speed my bro had a supera i used to drive all the time so, i know how to drive a manual car.

    the motor is going to remain stock for now except for external parts (cam gears, pullies, some electronic stuff etc.) so im not too woried about having to much power for the tranny. eventually the motor is comming back out its getting turboed, type r tranny, pistons, rods... basicly, the works.

    what is this level 10 you said something about?

    and on top of that, the gearing for them is worse then horrible. I could see if your talking about the autotrannies for a Grand National, but for honda's, its pointless. If your not looking to spend a ton of money, go and sell your car, and buy a manual honda or what ever other kind of car you want. It will probally be the exact same price, and you'll be much happier in the long run.
