Yes the tiptronic auto is only a four speed, don't try looking for a fifth gear because Honda never put one in there. Howerver when the converter unlocks itself it gives the impression of a fifth gear, but it is just that - an impression.

Has anyone heard if it'd be possible to swap a RSX/TSX 5AT tiptronic as a replacement...?
Just an idea.. though I doubt it's doable/feasible...

Only if you plan on swapping in a K20/24. The main reason is that the K spins the other way, so if you bolt it to a H (if you can get it to fit) you will have 5 reverse gears and only 1 forward.

Best bet is a Prelude 5 speed, or even better bet is a M2B4.
