    "better" is perhaps the most useless word on this website. Without knowledge of your exact intentions/goals with the car its really difficult to give a "better" description to anything.

    The LS has longer gears, good for highway cruising or if you feel like taking your Integra to 150mph.

    The GSR has shorter gears, better acceleration but higher highway RPMs.

    As far as strength/reliability I dont know of any differences between them.

    I wouldn't use an LS, even for gas mileage. It's fucking POINTLESS to try and make something with 'big power' if you're just going to throw an LS on and try to get good gas mileage. Keep the GSR or upgrade to an ITR/CTR.


    The only excuse for using an LS transmission is if you're actually driving an LS/GS/RS Integra. Period, end of story.
