VX transmission in HF

Postby wspangle » Fri Mar 24, 2017 1:39 pm

Is it possible to put a transmission from a Civic VX into a stock CRX HF? It is hard to find an HF trans, let alone rebuild kits, but I want better fuel economy than the SI trans is giving me.

If it is possible, how much work is involved?

You need mounts and convert from cable to hydraulic...

Thank you.

Now, anybody have a step by step for the process? This is my very first Honda and first time doing a transmission swap that requires modifying.

Your giving up on finding an HF transmission far too easily. They are scarce but if you keep an eye out long enough one will turn up. I think it will be much easier in the long run to find the transmission you want then do a VX swap.

There are probably people that would be game to trade your trans for an HF trans.

There is nothing special required for a basic HF trans rebuild. As long as the gears are good the rest of the parts are common D series trans parts.

I'm running a VX motor and trans. While the swap was smooth and the hydro adapter has been trouble free for over 3 years, I would encourage you to keep looking for the HF trans. That is unless you're ever in central Florida, then I'd just trade you lol.

You forget one MAJOR thing, the shift forks are no longer available from the dealer for 88-91, 92-95, and 96-00 D series transmissions.

I bought up everything that could be found by the computer searches through HPD.

That said, I would keep the cable setup and not try a Hydro swap. HF 2.95 FD swap into a DX trans will make it a more "friendly" daily driven transmission.
