    Any manual B series transmission will work. I would run a GSR B18C(1) transmission for the shorter gears with a decent 5th gear for highway mpg's

    OBD1 P75 ECU is what you need.

    I had a B16 transmission and absolutely hated the 5th gear. 70mph @4,000rpm's ain't too economical.

    But the other gears are fun.

    Still....GSR transmission FTW

    :withstupid: The GSR trans is ideal. If not that, personally id rather have the b16 over the LS.

    You can buy a cable/hydraulic converter kits, but the easiest thing is just to find a transmission that matches the setup already in your car...

    My RSX-S has this problem. At 75mph the tach sits right below 4k. Apparently you can use a 6th gear from a TSX, but K-series parts are still more expensive than B-series stuff...

    Guys do trow the TSX 6th in. Just like B-series guys throw the LS 5th in.

    I do not think its worth it unless you are tearing the trans apart for a rebuild or something.

    I believe if you have a 05-06 RSX-S then it's a 4.7FD. 02-04 is a 4.3FD (better hwy mpg's)

    I love my itr transmission. I also loved my old b16 trans. but you guys are right, if you want better mpg then go with gsr or ls.
