So now I just need to figure out if the 92-95 VX/CX final drive can swap into my tranny, or else presumably I need to follow for the whole tranny and plan a full swap. ... probably just going to wait until the original clutch eventually gives up though, get those things done together.
Glad you find it useful! I actually have a VX final drive gear and countershaft I have long thought i would swap into my 98 DX transmission as part of a general rebuild. I'm told it should work. I think putting into an EX transmision would be even better because lower gears are much shorter thanin the VX, while 5th gear is about the same. I suspect my 93 CX trans is not as good in the city as my98 DX trans was, because the gearing is so tall,especially the transition from 2cd to 3rd, but also first.
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.
