    Hey guys, i'm doing a b20 swap into a 94 hatch. In your opinions, what tranny would you recommend, B16 or LS. Gas mileage is not a concern but will the B16 keep me constantly buzzing high in the RPM range? Also would a set of stage 1 Crowers be too hard on a stock bottom end for a driver with a lead foot

    Yeah, the GSR is right in the middle.
    LS = Insanely long gears
    B16 = Pretty damn short
    GSR = Right in t3h middle!!
