Whats involved in installing a crx hf tranny into a 1995 civic vx?

also has anyone done a rear brake conversion on a civic vx? whats involved? What disc did you use ? What car did you pull them from. I saw 1991 crx si with rear disc at the junk yard the other day is it possible to swap those onto a vx?
Thanks!

Is it better to use the HX flywheel/clutch or the Si flwheel with d-series clutch.

I heard they bolt up fine and any info is appreciated. His rpms are WAY high with the Si tranny....4.400 final drive.
Sorry. There is NO WAY to make this work. With the exception of nuts and bolts, there is absolutely NOTHING compatible between D-series and B-series powertrains. They are pretty much different in EVERY way. If he wants to use a D-series transmission, he also needs to swap a D-series motor.

On the other hand, if he wants to keep his B16A AND get lower freeway revs on a 2000 SI, the only thing he can do is either swap over to a full 1994+ Integra LS transmission, or swap the LS fifth gear into his SI transmission. The second option might actually be better, since he would still have the tight gearing in gears 1-4 for around town acceleration (the 2000 SI is a VERY heavy car for a 1.6 liter engine). And as for the final drive, I actually believe the 1999-2000 SI has a 4.266 final drive (the same as the LS).

for swapping rear-wheel disc you'll need the entire rear hub w/discs/calipers & i believe rear brake lines matching the vehicle u got the rear discs from. i had some from a DC teg but sold em yr ago =(.
hmmm i've got a DX trans on my VX right now. w/my wacky o2 & EX tb...im gettin 36-38mpg. i'm keeping an eye out for another VX/CX trans & will put the DX trans up for sale when i get one.

Converting to rear disks might hurt your mpg- as the calipers drag more that well adjusted drum brakes.

They're also slightly heavier, but no, they don't affect mpg.

The easiest thing to do is find an EX/Si from 92-95 or a 94+ Integra and grab the entire rear trailing arm/hub assembly. It's quite difficult to separate the hubs from the trailing arms, but that's the cheapest route. You'll need an impact and some torque bits. Another benefit to swapping the entire rear suspension is that you'll get the LCAs that have mounting holes for a rear swaybar.

I swapped in a rear trailing arm set-up from a 99 Si (the LCAs are different, but every other part of it is the same as the 92-95 parts) onto my VX (along with the disc brake proportioning valve) and it made a huge difference in stopping and resisting brake fade. I don't drive fast and I do plan out my stops usually for maximum MPG, but I really like the safer feeling it gives me.

I noticed no decrease in MPG at all with the addition of rear discs.
