    i'm currently looking at either doing a mini-me conversion in a '88 CRX Si or swapping a jdm first gen B16A into a '88 CRX Si, but since i know it's pointless to ask which one would be faster i was wondering if you could tell me (assuming they're for the same engine) which gear setup would be faster. This is what i'm looking at:

    note: both setups are cable transmissions

    Setup #1
    1st gear= 3.166
    2nd gear= 2.105
    3rd gear= 1.458
    4th gear= 1.107
    5th gear= 0.870
    FD gear= 4.400

    Setup #2
    1st gear= 3.250
    2nd gear= 1.944
    3rd gear= 1.259
    4th gear= 0.937
    5th gear= 0.878
    FD gear= 4.730

    Also i was told that you can mate ZC's 1-5 gears to a CRX FD, but could i just swap the ZC's 2nd and 5th gears into the CRX trans.

    Also I read in an article on this site that you can't mate a usdm d16a1 trans to a crx, but can you use the d16a1 gears in a crx transmission housing.
