    your saying a b16 tranny is better on boost than an ls? well the b16 has shorter gears so you wont stay in boost at all which means you wont put out the power your suppose to now as for the ls tranny since they have longer gears your boosting for a long while and hitting top performance .the b16 is a great tranny yea i know i have one my self on my ls/vtec but they are good for all motor more than boost

    huh? you won't be in boost as long... what?

    the shorter gearing will let him wind through the gears faster.

    My buddy has a b16 in his hatch back, and due to funds he has to have an LS tranny at the moment and when he shifts at redline into third gear he drops out of VTEC. So the B16 tranny is great for VTEC motors.

    yea b16 is a great tranny and its better than the ls but in boost like if you boost and integra ls engine your not going to buy a b16 tranny and put it in the ls and plus you wouldnt want a vtec boost ls engine so the ls tranny is beter for boost in my opinion because the shorter gears are great for n/a but when your shifting in a turbo car you want to stay in boost as long as you can to get the full spulling of the turbo and to put out alot of perofrmance , like its common sense and im not saying either one is better i like the b16 better but if i wanted a turbo car for good price i would get a ls and put a t3/t4 and block gridle hondata s200 with good tuning and i gurante itll pul alot more than ona Si turbo .but lets dro this and get back to his question so i say b16

    Ok check it out. here is how you figure out which tranny is better for the street.

    Whatever the shortest gears are you can buy that still allow you to "hook up" and get traction.

    So for all motor, a VTEC tranny is undisputed, with a JDM Type-R with 4.78 final drive being the best Honda tranny you can buy wtih money.

    Best aftermarket tranny I have seen is like a 5.0 final drive with all the gears moved up 1 entire gear from 3rd through 5th. So 5th is fourth, etc..

    My prelude Tranny is special made also, for my motor. It has a long first and second gear, then when I shift into 3rd, its really short, so the revs don't drop much. This is called the "power" area of the cars run. For the street in transition from 2nd to 3rd, because of the short gearing the car is really going to JUMP forward and have maximum power sooner.

    shoter gearing = faster acceleration.

    Na, boosted, juiced, propane injected, water fed, hydogen eating, batery powered, you name it.

    The LS tranny is good for 2 things.
    1- good gas mileage.
    2- 180mph dashes.

    if you dont' care a shit about either of those, the Ls is not for you

    OK, B16 Tranny is definately the best for all motor, Shorter Gears, Faster Acceleration, etc, etc. I have a b16 on my LS and it is definately FAST, Except when your on the highway you cant really go past like 120-130, But youll get there in a HURRY.
    Yes LS is better for boost, Long gears, LONGER TIME IN BOOST, FASTER ACCELERATION.

    GO B16!!!!!!!!
