Ok. I see. Wanna try something radical? There have been efforts to swap MTs across the seventh gen and sixth gen Civics. It seems like they can bolt up, which also means a 5th Gen CX/VX transmission possibly bolts to the seventh gen Civic. There would be more fabrication, including a work around the imobilizer, but the 5mt CX/VX trnamission has a 3.25 FD and a 0.710 5th gear. Tall!
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.
