    I believe you use axles from a 88-91 Civic or CRX. Im not sure. Look into this.

    zc trany is totally worth getting your hands on. It is lower gearing and has a limited slip. only down side is you wil be running at 3500 rpms @ 70mph.

    I would not suggest useing a DX 4 speed it will suck. Maybe a DX 5 speed or LX 5 speed. What good is an Si tranny or the very best is get an Si and ZC tranny and swap the final drive so you got low rpms in 5 gear but the nice quick ZC 1-4 gears. Oh and not ZC trannys come with and LSD. If you use a ZC tranny you need different axles two same sized cause the ZC has an intermedate shaft. I think 88-89 Teg axles will work.
