I'm not interested in a ridiculously tall geared transmission either as that would negatively affect acceleration. I know that any D series transmission will fit any D series engine, so bolting it to the engine shouldn't be a problem. The mounts and the axles may be different though, not sure.

I don't have to worry about the immobilizer because my JDM ECU doesn't have one. Besides, just changing the transmission isn't going to affect the immobilizer.
