Default Ex Tranny

Has anyone actually put an ex tranny on a dx(hatch) and noticed a bid difference?

Anyone and everyone who has placed an EX/Si D16Z6/D16Y8 transmission on a platform that has the CX/VX/DX/LX transmission has noticed a big difference in acceleration and shorter 1/4 mile times.

thats not that bad if, i would try to lower it a bit and see if you could maybe save 25-40 bucks more, also if it still has fluid in it drain it before you buy it and see if it has metal shavings in it, if it does dont get it it was raped in its past life

No.

Same gear ratio of the D16Z6 tranny. Only difference is that the shift forks are a lot stronger than the D16Z6 ones.

The VTEC-E transmission is a VERY long geared transmission. Worse than the DX/LX transmissions. The VTEC-E transmission is shared with the CX platform. Since the VTEC-E is out of a VX, don't get it.

If it is in good condition, the most I'd pay is $200-$250 MAXIMUM. If it has been raped, $100. But you won't really know if the Synchros are good until you install it.

Yes, expect to pay about $700 from a salvage yard for a Y8 trans in good shape.

Most good used ones go for $250 on H-T

I bought a used one for $150 and told it was good, but when I took it apart, the first few gears were fried!

Depends on supply at the salvage yard. When I was looking, it was hard to find one, so prices were higher. If they have too many in stock, then its cheaper.

K, I have never done a tranny swap b4. All i need to swap an ex tranny to a dx is a ex clutch, correct?

From other threads, it seems that the pressure plate, clutch and flywheel will bolt right up. No need to get an EX pressure plate, clutch or flywheel.

Should be a straight plug and play procedure.

Anyone want to concur?

nah..all you need is a flathead screwdriver, 3/8"socket wrench, 10mm socket, 12mm socket, 14mm socket, 1/2" socket wrench, 17mm socket, 1 1/8" socket (i think) for your axles, something to press your shift linkage pin out..be aware, its aka "bitch pin" and make sure to bleed your slave cylinder when you're done..

i also have a friend that has a sohc act clutch he bought but hes selling his car..it'd be a good investment since you're going to have everything apart.

The axle nut is 32mm (metric please!)

Also, inspect the throwout bearing, pilot bearing, and flywheel (you might want to resurface it)
