    Well your going to want the shortest gears possible and that means a 92-00 EX tranny. Shorter gears will make you accelerate faster period. You want to look for a 96-00 EX tranny though because they have steel shifter forks. I just recently broke my tranny because the aluminum shifter fork in my 92-95 EX tranny broke. Here is the write up with pictures... http://www.homemadeturbo.com/forum/index.p...;threadid=20884 The main problem was me being too hard on the tranny, but it was already fucked up so I didn't care. The 92-95 and 96-00 EX tranny's have almost identical gearing so either one will work fine. I wouldn't pay much if anything for that DX tranny. I just picked up another EX tranny for $40. Here is some info on the 92-95 tranny's also... http://home.cinci.rr.com/mistab0ne/tranny.html

    thanks for the help man.....so would the dx tranny be better if I was going turbo in the long run? because of longer gearing?

    No. Longer gearing is not always better for a turbo setup, especially not the long gears of the D series transmissions. I would stick to the EX transmission no matter what build you were planning.

    The "longer gearing" is better for turbo is BS. Shorter gearing will make you accelerate faster N/A or turbo. Our honda motors make all the power at high rpms, so you want stay in the power band as much as possible.
