Getting the transmission out and apart is easy enough, but you'd want to take the gear stack to someone with a press to get the countershaft gears off the countershaft.

Honestly, I'm not certain what all is involved in removing the transmission from a TSX. The Insight doesn't have a subframe, so it's a matter of unbolting the transmission and loosening the engine mounts so it sags, then sliding the transmission off. Once it's out, taking the transmission apart isn't hard or very time consuming, except that you need a press to get the CS gears off.

Yep, it can convert low and high frequency back and forth (approximately 30-40x frequency difference), or make smaller corrections caused by gearing or tire size. Should work on any transmission from any manufacturer.

Small update, the weather has been improving here, and so has my fuel economy. I'm 214 miles into a tank and have a tank average so far of 48.5mpg. This morning the weather was 39F and raining, and I averaged 51.8mpg on my way to work. Approximately 40 miles of my tank have been traveled with the engine off.

I'm looking forward to the weather continuing to improve.
