Let's keep it civilized. Debates are fine but s*** slinging and name calling aren't.

On the b16a/b I prefer the b16 trans. The higher rpm limits mean 80mph @ 4k isn't an issue. Dropping to third at 80 gets crazy. Maxing your top end at 120-130 is fine. Especially on an autox build. A b16a with an ls lacks low end. Ultimately b16 trans with ls 5th would be the way to go

well i bought an LS tranny thats in it now and i have the b16 trans but 3rd gear is blown. should i use the LS 3rd and 5th gear in the b16 tranny? since ik integra 3rd gear pulls pretty decent. idk how it would be with the turbo b16 though. any input?

well now im thinking about it. b16 is a tranny to put down torque since their so short. but b18 is longer for power. so what if i have b16 1st and 2nd, then b18 3rd, 4th, and 5th? so i could get torque at low end then pull longer at higher speeds? or is my thinking like completely off
