What cbaber says in above reply and Auto Parts Market ... that's where I got my 1993 CX trans with 93K miles for $300. I had been watching for quite a while, but I just checked for VX trannys in the Southeast and see a few listed as "A" grade in GA and FL for under $400 ... there was one really good looking one with a very low price and very low miles in VA.

Good luck.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
