Changing a 4speet to 5, switching out final drive and forks etc. sounds like a huge hassle to me. Go to one of the honda forums and post a wanted add, or watch ebay for a complete HF trans. A lot of guys on the honda forums swap out the HF for an SI trans and will usually sell the HF trans for a song. I've seen them come up several times for around $50-75. Try www.honda-tech.com

I dont think the previous poster ment for You to get an 84 hf transmission. I think he ment for you to use the site.
Yeah- I was just saying that you can find some good deals on that website.

You might check autozone.com and see if the same part number for axle shafts is used for the 4 speed and 5 speed- just to be sure that will be compatible if you switch over to a 5 speed.

Thanks guys for being so patient . One more question, though. How do I view people's gas logs that have already tried things similar to what I'm attempting. I see them mentioned in posts and I've tried searching but I can't figure out how to view them.

Look at the blue box directly beneath the posters name- if they have cars in their garage, then you can click on either the name of the car and view their mods, or you can click on the "XXX MPG(US)" figure shown and that will take you directly to the gas log for that particular car.

I have been doing a lot of searching. A member named budoman put an HF tranny in an STD and he was thoroughly dissappointed. I look through his gas logs and the HF swap is not all that impressive. I saw another post of his and he says he has trouble climbing hills. I wonder if performance modds woulg make up for putting tall gears on a weak engine. Maybe a turbo with a slight larger exhaust housing to hit boost at low revs. I think I see why honda went through so much trouble to keep the crx hf so light. In my Z I do 35 in 5th at about 1300 revs. Do you think that upping the fuel a little with lower revs will make much of a difference? Or do you think regular peformance upgrades will make up for the extra weight and lack of power? Or do you think I would bebetter off installing just the fifth gear or just the diff? Installing ac would also cut down on drag in the summer as the windows wouldn't be down; but would they cancel each other out?

The HF trans will hurt your city mpg (including at 35 mph), the only place it will help is out on the highway at 55+ mph.

My HF swap probably gives me another 3-4 mpg on at 65-70mph. I also like that its much quieter at those speeds (less engine noise).

Did you swap into an STD?

If all you were doing was putting an hf transmission into an 88 std, I think you'll be disappointed with the drivability when you're done. I put one behind a d15z1, in a 90 hatch and the low end torque of that engine makes it a great swap. Even swapping it into a dx or lx might be ok, but the std engine is only 70hp. I wouldn't go there.
