    i've been reading a few posts from a while back and found that some guy with an 89 civic was able to simply unplug the vss sender and plug his cable adapter in from the stock civic cable. do you know if this is possible with a brand spanking new (or close to it) jdm itr lsd trans??? i have pics if anyone really wants to see them...it's so clean i can eat off it if i wanted to.

    It should fit, there is only like one screw holding it in the tranny.

    so does the vss sensor take a physical gear driven reading from the tranny and convert to electrical signal? which means i could put my gear driven cable end in and i'd be good. does anyone know about possible length issues on stock 90 crx si speedo cable? i'm thinking i might need teg ls cable instead.

    The VSS takes the gear / cable spins in the back of the EF cluster converting the speed. If I am not mistaken, I believe the DX cable works.
