Default Recommendation to find a 4.43 FD?

Hi ppl. My Civic hosts a 1.6L D16A6 engine with its respective tranny. Since it is the original, it has the 4.25 FD. I would like to know if anyone here knows of someon, anywhere, that has the 4.43 FD found in any application that will fit my combo. I understand the the '90-'93 ZC Acura Integra came with it. Maybe from some other year, I am not sure. If I can't get my hands on one of those, I am going to have to buy the 4.71 ATS FD that sells for over $700. I know of a few people that have found the 4.43 FD that I need, for less than half of that amount.

The 4.43 Final Drive is perfect for the road course tracks where I race, it is a proven fact. Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks...

i believe i have seen some on e-bay and such. but they were asking like 600+ for their trannys. try the clossest jdm importer near you. i picked up my D15b for 350. if my diff ends up not working, im just gonna buy one of the stock lsd trannys.

Thank you for your responses. I got my 4.4375 FD and installed it last night along with a Helical Limited Slip Differential. The car pulls hard and turns great.

I have several ZC trans in my stash. Selling some of them but I'm going to open them up first to check the ratios in them.

I got it from a group of guys that work with Hondas exclusively in Puerto Rico and they shipped it next day with UPS. They are winning a lot of road races over there and they call that FD "El Diablo", which means "The Devil". But they also mess around with swapping things like 3rd and 4th gear ratios in addition to the final drive. I wouldn't be surprised if they even did Cryogenics hardening treatment on them to make them last longer. But they said its a winner anyway. It's a shame that does not make them any more (I think). If sells it, it would be in Japan and pretty expensive.

Oh, by the way... I think they have a couple more of those in case you are interested. And I think my team has two in our shop in reserve.

try smaller tires, cheaper.

going from 23" tall tire to a 20" tall tire makes a 4.25 FD feel like a 4.88 FD

I plan on getting some 205/50-14 drag radials this spring for my CRX. I think their right at 22" as opposed to my 23" I have right now.
