Hi guys,

I'm putting together the parts for my own Honda conversion project, and I've found an engine without gearbox. It's a B18C4 engine, what would be the best gearbox to look for? Is there anything to particularly avoid?

I'm hoping to run 10" wheels, because I'm a fool like that, and I'm particularly thinking about final drives.

I don't think there is a box to suit for final drive watsons sell a custom made final drive kit which is like £500

And try and get a lsd box

If you want to run 10's then should really look at getting a final drive from Watsons will make the car much more driveable. Gearbox wise the S9B LSD is a good choice but check that the Watsons final drive can be used in this box.

You must take the advice of mechanic.
