Icon5 B series gearbox- possible????

Im looking into manual tranny conversions now,
I have a 95 F22 honda prelude and we do not have many parts for this car here in south africa, so finding an F-series or H-series gearbox is gonna be very difficult and probly costly as well.

B-series and D-series hoda parts we have in abundance thanks to civics.

So does b series trannys mate up to F-series engines, what modifications are needed if not, what other options do i have.

This granny shifter is driving my nuts!

Well, I can tell you that they make kits to adapt H-series motors to B-series transmissions. Also, H and F-series transmissions and motors are compatible, so if you can find yourself an H to B adapter kit, you could make a B-series tranny work with your F22.

They don't mate up, they make kits for putting B series trannys with H22's into civic's but if you tried putting the B series tranny into the Prelude it wouldn't fit. Bottom line it is cheaper for you to get an F or H series tranny than to try and fab up custom motor mounts and custom axles.

Re: B series gearbox- possible????

He's obviously on a budget since he mentioned the word "cost," so that probably won't be an option.

Exactly, it is still going to be way cheaper to get the H or F series tranny, probably a stronger transmission too. The gearing would be wrong also.
