Default dx into si?

has anyone tried a dx trans in an si 88-91.
i have a few people who say that it's better because of gear ratios, then i have had a few say it really sucks.
one guy even said he put a dx trans into his stock crx si and outran another stock si in the q/t mile.
what do you fella's think?

The DX has really long gears compared to EX/Si, doesn't it?
I really don't think that would be beneficial... Unless you want poor accelleration that is.

I for one would not sacrifice accelleration for gas milage in that case...
The Si tranny is made for the Si engine, so why change?

I put a DX tranny on my 94 del sol Si and it was fun for awhile but when that tranny went i went back to an Si tranny and i'll never go back. the acceleration of the Si tranny is alot more noticable then the DX tranny. 3rd in the DX tranny was to long.

if you are looking for speed...no matter what your setup, n/a, n2o, turbo, the tranny geared more towards acceleration will always win. unless the driver is shit. dont bother with the whole "stay in boost longer" bullshit with the longer geared trannys, what a joke. the SI is definately a better choice.

and mpg isnt bad with the SI. i get 36-37 mpg city driving with my '90 a6 motor/tranny swap. and im not easy on the throttle by any means.
