    I have an auto jdm b16 but i dont think it has a b16 tranny because when i tested out the gearing in 1st gear it went to 45mph @7k rpms and at 8200 rpms it went up to 55mph.
    Why does it have such a long 1st gear?
    how many mph does your 1st gear go up to?

    you gotta nice setup there.
    yea my car is slow as shit, my friends LS beat me by like 3-4 cars from a dig and i wooped him by 3-4 cars from a 50mph. My 2nd gear goes up to 85mph. It's kinda wierd that it does that. But it keeps pulling even after 120 mph

    Honda Civic DTC 19 check this site out... it talks about the automatic lockup control valve... might be useful and help you troubleshoot... from what this site says is that it was equipped on 1.5 liter crx engines...

    I looked at the site that you gave me but it seems that it's for an OBD0 ecu. The connections that it's telling me to do is not the same as my obd1 ecu. If i can find out whats the pinouts for those solenoids i can just run the wire straight to the ecu. but i need those pinouts. I got the diagram for the obd1 pinouts but it doesnt mention anything about the automatic lock up control solenoid valve. The colors of the solinod wire are: 1st solenoid green and 2nd solenoid yellow
