Yes, it says at the top engine/ 5 speed trans, then it says again at the bottom parts list 5 speed. Thats with an LSD too. If you wanna boost it, stay away fron the Type-r engine as it has nice high compression. The Type-R or B18C5 has slight factory P&P (throat taken out 10 thous) and some more lumpy cams. For an N/A set up its not bad.

whats a good setup to get.
daily driver 96 civic dx.
it needs to be reliable & would like to turbo it later down the road after headers intake & exhaust.

i have 4000 - 4200 dollars to play with engine wise. not including headers intake and exhaust or turbo.

if youre gonna do a turbo setup i dont think you should buy headers and intake...those arejust gonna be replaced ngo to waste when you decide to boost..
