my friend wants to do a vx/hx swap in a crx. what all is needed to get the hydro tranny to work. what mounts and axels are needed. im sorry if there is a thread on this already, i just dont have time to do a search. i have been out of the honda scene for a while and im trying to help my buddy out. i know about the hf, but i think this would be a better option.

thanks in advance.

Any particular reason why? Just what he could get his hands on? Going for a high MPG build or something?

Do your research on tranny ratios and report back.

Tonight I converted a 5g DX tranny to a EX 1-4 with CRX si 5th and VX/HF 3.250 FD.

Two hours and 15 minutes, I am AWESOME :)

we just wanted to use what we had. it would seem better to put that final in the ex tranny. will a hydro final drive work in a cable tranny. or does anyone know where a hf tranny is for sale. i have honestly never came across one.

You don't come across Hf tranny because there's no demand for them. Someone probebly has one laying aroound but won't admit to it. If all else fails try www.car-part.com and see if you can find one.

4g DX tranny with HF FD, cable must stay cable FD.

I have the ultra rare 2.95 Cail FD (or is it on 1988?) sitting here if you desire it.

I don't see why it's odd. CRX were designed as economy cars to begin with; same as the Geo's, and also came with fuel efficient engines. My brother is doing the same thing with his CX; currently has a B7 swapped in but he's rebuilding the B8 and throwing that back in.

I would just keep the trans that is in it for now and swap the engine first. Rywire could help you with that. Remember though 92-95vx ECU's use a 5-wire secondary o2 sensor so that issue will also need to be addressed.

I happen to have a vx ecu if you would be interested. (sorry vx-bubble it won't work for me)
