Except for the fact of LSD, I would assume one YS1 trans is the same as the other.

My b16's primary leak on that side was the Vtec controller base gasket. If you really think it's only leaking when you hit vtec, then maybe you should consider this one first before doing the cam seal.

The cam cap seal commonly goes on these engines, but if I didn't have to replace it I wouldn't bother.... you should really get a new valve cover gasket, and hondabond as well, so it's not just the cost of the cam cap..

LSD stand for Limited Slip differential. non lsd has a open differential which means the wheel that has least amount of traction is going to spin. pretty much like one wheel drive, having lsd when a wheel starts to spin faster then the other then power is applied to the other wheel. there are some great Youtube videos that show and explain all of this. just type how does LSD work.

Pr-3 is the engine code that stand for a b16 engine. now on the ecu pr-3 is again for b16 and the last set of numbers is just production. 1-51 means its for a manual and 52 - 99 means its for a auto.
