i love mine , very reliable with a very good ammount of power and it responds really well to bolt ons. theres a lot of aftermarket parts for the gsr also and its not that hard to swap in to a civic.

id say if I could have any B series engine to drive w/ only bolt ons, it would be the GSR.

Generally you need to use the trans ment for it but some companies make adapterplates that allow you to use another transmission. Switch to manual.

You accel faster.... Humans can shift faster than a computer can. Auto's also can't take as much hp as a manual trans can.
