Reverse engineering D trans. My trans shop in 2008.




I've spent over 60 hours this past week sifting through tons of honda data specifically for F/H trans. If anyone else has any questions, I'll be more than happy to answer them.

Except for you California98Civic. Your attitude sucks too much.
First of all i envy you work area!
I gotta question can i put a 1992-1995 VX/CX trans in my 05 hx? If so how easy is it ? and I gotta guy that says hes done it before what should i look to pay him? any suggestions on sources for the transmission? Also any tips thoughts or anything I should know?

Bense will give you his own reply I'm sure. But I will say that supposedly this can be done (I have not, nor have I personally met anyone who claims to have done it). But the swap of the 5th gen trans to a 7th gen car will be complicated by the differences in shifter linkages and the seventh gen Civic's immobilizer, if I understand correctly. Wiring and shifter adaptation will be required, but they bolt up.

This is a better question what can be done trans side for more mpg in my 7th gen?. is there better swaps with a taller last gear with more compatibility? Have people been able to retro fit with a taller final gearing? Sorry to ask you two seem to be the most knoweldgeable on the net.
Thank you kindly,
Max

Between the 6th and 8th generation Civics, Honda reversed the rotation of the engines. So no this will not work unless the corresponding engine is also swapped. D and B series are not compatible with K series without a full swap.

He says his car is an '05 HX, which makes it 7th generation, which was before the rotation reversal.

Oh, and on the question of other possibilities for a trans mod... an obvious simple mod would be taller wheel/tire combos. You have the 4x100 bolt pattern and 14" wheels were probably stock on your car (depending on trim level, I think). So swap to a 15" wheel an taller tires, the effect is taller gearing. I am running 15" seven hole rims from a first gen MINI.
