I was afraid it would pretty much ruin the driving experience of the car that is already pretty gutless.

Thanks for sharing your real world experiences with this.

I was also considering swapping in an hx trans. Exact same transmission as the LX but a slightly final taller drive.

I have an ex transmission that I have owned up and replaced the input shaft bearing on but will not use it on this car due to the worse final drive ratio.

My current transmission sounds like the input shaft bearing is also bad. I might just replace that part and keep using it.
