JDM D15 Tranny vs. D16z6 Tranny

Which tranny is:

1) stronger
2) has better gearing for racing

My thoughts would be that they are pretty similar unless someone knows otherwise. They both spank the b7 tranny right?

well, depends on what model of trans the car came out of: I.E. The D15B came in alot of different JDM civics. There are different models as far as Vti Etc..... so you will need to know what it came out of to make that decision.

Same for the american trans: the EX and Si have same motor (92-95) but have different trans (longer/shorter 5th gear). The only real way to find out what is what (as far as differences between DX/LX/CX/HX, or differences between EX/Si) you need to split the case and count the teeth on the gears.
