    Looking for some suggestions on a transmission to put on 92-95 JDM ZC motor...I have done some research and a lot of what I have found has been a EX tranny, does that sound good or anyone have any other suggestions, comments or concerns?

    well, the best would be a d15b lsd tranny,,but other than that the ex or si tranny will be fine

    would that be a lot more expensive than an ex and could it hook right up to the motor?

    any of the 3 that i said will hook right up its all from civic 92-95 so it will bolt right up, and yes the d15b tranny is more and hard to find, so a si or ex is the way to go prolly

    oh ok, well right on...I have been told that a good transmission would be a smart investment, got a 93DX i am going to boost, and I have read that the DX trans has really long gears and that an EX would be much better to put it so ill def. try to find one, thanks for the :)

    if your planning on boosting then with the ex or si tranny,,you will have waaay more wheel spin,just throwing that in there for you to think about,cuz nobody ever seem s to worry about actually getting the power to work properly,just about actually getting the most power possible

    yeah i am planning on boosting I had already kinda made up my mind on the ex because I was told that like with the ex tranny I would get better gas mileage being on the highway going 60 mph or so than an si which would be at a higher RPM, I just wanted to see some other opinions

    So your solution to traction problems is to use an inferior transmission and slow yourself down? Traction issues should be fixed through the proper means (LSD, suspension, traction bars, new tires, etc.). I guess it would somewhat depend on your budget though...

    You probably heard that about the 99-00 Si tranny. That car uses a B16, so the tranny is completely different.

    They're actually not 100% the same, but pretty damn close.

    I would suggest you stop butting in on other people's conversations and start your own thread...

    well thanks for the noob reference I appreciate that ha...so if I could get one shipped for 150 from ohio to VA with it having No grind but about 200K miles on it that would be pretty good?
