I found some info on a Facebook group that answered most of my questions, and one person commented about the splines.

Looks like:
-Axle placement is the same
-Shift linkage works
-Hydro conversion for the transmission is around $150
-Electronic VSS plugs in without issue, but I might need the 96-00
-Clutch and flywheel work from 89-91
-I need to fabricate the mount

Not even close to insurmountable. But, I might consider swapping 2 and 3 from another D series to make them a little shorter.

The HF transmission not only has a cable speedo, it also is a 4th Gen Civic so it has a cable shifter, whereas Aero Civic will be hydraulic. Alternately, with the really tall wheel/tire combination like I have, I turn roughly 1800 RPMs at 60 mph with a VX/CX transmission.

[EDIT] Just noticed your Facebook group answers. So, not only the splines but the length of the half axles are the same? I also mistook this for a question about your Insight at first. Ugh! I need coffee.

I wasn't aware the shifter would be different, but it makes sense. I could go with taller tires, but literally just bought brand new 165/65r14's for it. Maybe next time they're due.

Keeping the gearing as it is will probably keep it more drivable anyhow.

I run 175/70r15 tires on 12 lb 2006 Mini "7-hole" 15" rims. TALL as an HF, I bet. The HF had only 13" rims.

The shift rod was the same from 1988-2000.

That's cool, but that is just the rod from the shift boot into the bell housing. The shifter linkage might be different. It was a rod like the 1992-2000 Civics, but was it of the same length and other specs? In these pics (admittedly just taken from eBay), they look very similar but not identical, especially on the end connecting to the rest of the shift parts on the transmission end. There seems to be a different fitting to connect the linkage to the hydraulic 1992-00 system.

Any linkage incompatibilities can be fixed with a welder!
