allright maybe someone can answer my question. I got my zc motor from a guy who had it in his 4speed civic. he swapped and lsvtec. So i bought the setup from him. He told me the swap came with an si tranny. But i dont think it can be an si tranny cuz the gears seam sooo long. I originally had an auto. dx so i cant compare it to anything.
when i run my zc i can get 40 out of first, 70 out of second and who knows with 3rd. I also have 195/50/15's im rollin on. Also when just cruisin in 5th in doesnt hit 3k rpm until 68 mph. I drove a friends stock si and it hit 3k rpm at 60mph...wit stock wheels.

So can someone with the same setup tell me if im running a si or dx tranny or not!!

Also i just bought a 88 crx si tranny for $100 cuz i got a new clutch free with it that fits an 88. So i figured it wouldnt hurt.

So wat tranny do i have in my car now?? dx or si?

I cant tell you which tranny it is but it doesnt sound like its either. Neither of my crx's (si) or a of friend's 88 dx shifts that high.

I actually would be interested in what is too and how the long gears would work for my mod'd SC D16z6? Gear ratios I dont get.

I have a 1st gen B16, i'm assuming stock tranny, haven't looked. The gears on it are mad steep, at 60 i'm somewhere between 3500-4000 rpms
