That makes sense, and I will look into those posts too.
There is so much information just on driving that could save a lot of money, I am shocked at why more people dont do the little things. Then I realize that saving five minutes on your commute is worth it to most people.

Thank you,
Jared

Hello Jared, and welcome to the party.

California98Civic posted this super-handy table o' info about three years ago.

Now, you strike me as a guy who doesn't mind digging into his car. I see that what you have is a true mongrel, pulling bits and parts from hither and yon. That's cool.

This is a distinguishing characteristic of Honda Guys. Honda Guys swap engines as often as I change pants. I don't think I must be a true Honda Guy, but whatevs. Anyway, if you peek at that table you'll see the 88-91 CRX HF (first section of the table) had a taller final drive and an even longer overdrive. If it's possible to bolt that transmission to your engine (and now, over 20 years since it was offered, it may not be possible to find one, let alone bolt it on) would reduce your cruising RPM by about 20%.

When I was looking for a transmission I was looking for-
1) Crx hf
2) Civic vx
3) Civic hx
I was not able to find an hf near me (at local pick-a-part shops) for what I thought of as a reasonable price. $350.
But a friend of mine was swaping in a B18c5 into his 99 Hx, so I gave him $100 for it and swaped it into mine . With the Hx transmission I can cruise at 2.2k rpm at 60 mph. And 75ish is at 3k rpm. That is not bad, in my oppion, but I would still love to get the hf transmission.
I loved working at Honda, the amount of information in their books is amazing. And I could call Honda techline for anything else that I could not find

And yes I love digging around in my car. I will be teaching my two boys about maintaining their cars. It is not that hard to work on our cars, doing some diagnostics on the new electronics is a bit of a pain, but still doable.

Thank you
Jared
