Maybe there are others reading this thread who can help more. gotta go!...
I haven't found a code but I did find the car
2003 Honda Civic Ferio C4 (up to mid-year 2003 for Japan ) specs review

gear ratios according to this are

1-3.5
2-1.956
3-1.344
4-1.034
5-0.787

FD-4.562

Im not sure these are correct as they don't really fit in the charts but they are really good for me if true and If I can get a rear end. Im assuming the CRV will work since they swap between AWD generations but Id really like to find something on this before I buy...... which right now there are none on eBay.

Yes buying the whole gearbox would be the chepest way but as I mentioned few post earlier I'm not on US and I do not know Of any of European models have the long 5th gear with 0.71 ratio 😀

Thats why I need to get exact part numbers what to order in US 😀 Tomorrow I will try to contact honda dealer in Poland and get the answer again, we will see... 😀

Can you review one more time my last post with the www link to gearbox store and the part numbers O left there?

There is always Automobile-Catalog the complete Catalog of Cars, car specs database... it is really extensive. And it seems to show really short gearing for these Euro Civics. For example, an 0.805 fifth gear with a 4.411 FD. But check out the Civic hybrid fifth gear: 0.756.

As for part numbers and suppliers on a short notice... I just don't know. Sorry.

I love that site, but I wonder how precise it is sometimes too. Only one way to find out... experiment. And those are some short gear ratios. You are in new terrain with a conversion list this. Pretty cool. Post your progress as it comes along. Start a build thread.

I have two Insight projects, I have a build thread for #1 which should be done soon but its a 6 month swap going on 3 years...
https://honda-tech.com/forums/honda-...muter-3290050/


#2 I have been torn about (2001 5 speed, still in the trailer i picked it up in) I really want a bad ass off road machine for camping pulling my off road teardrop. I love the idea of an RDX Turbo drivetrain but have been looking at CRV B and K swap possibilities. When I was researching my legal options I looked hard at the D17 (Kpro capable for mandatory OBD port) and found a few of the equivalent D15s....... these are attached to the modern D AWD trans and I figured a D15 will make all the power Ill ever need (turbocharged of course) I saw two of these transmissions sell on eBay, one was a $250 buy it now...... anyways Ill start a thread for #2 here so I can keep rambling but as far as this thread goes, I want this trans to work so message me if you know things.
