Default D16y8 engine... what tranny?

Which transmission should i be using? im in the process of swapping a d16y8 into an 1989 civic STD 3 DR.... rebuilding engine prepping just to tune and boost a bit. Wont boost till later on though. Id like to have the feel of an SI trans. Any model numbers or anything recommended?

I'm running a Y7 with an 89 Si trans. I'm happy with it for my city driving but I wish my highway revs were a little lower.

y8 has steel shift fork vs z6 with alumium, but tranny its self are 99% same, i think 3rd gear has like .01 shorter on a y8 which u wnt feel it.

but if price are same i would get y8, and most time they tend to have less mile than z6 too.

from what i read, there something about the y8 tran that gives it a 3rd gear grind. i forgot what, but it was discussed in a thread i was reading. think it was the steel shift fork design or something.

Man. Reading owns most of you.

Sir. Go with an Si cable trans unless you just want longer gears for better mpg then go with the HF trans.
