Any TSX transmission from a 1st Gen (04-08) will work. The ASP3 transmission from the Accord Euro-R will also bolt right in, and has shorter gears+LSD. If you swap in an ASP3 your 6th gear cruising RPM will be higher thou. When I did mine I swapped my TSX 6th gear into the ASP3 box. Shorter 2-5, LSD and the same cruising speeds as before.

It will work I have an 04 myself 2 years ago I put a 2008 6mt. I believe my mechanic had said he had to swap over a sensor on the outside. So the key thing is keep your old transmission and use the accessories off of it, if you get a newer year. It will bolt up fine. Some other things to consider is if you want LSD, this would be the time to do it. Also since I had the transmission out it’s actually the shop was able to install new axles without additional cost. So if you are getting violent shakes. Put a few more hundred and rebuild or replace that axle.

I found mine on eBay but the vendor was lkq so that was good. If you are on Facebook tsx marketplace I’ve seen one pop up every often often

There is a used one on eBay right now for $950. High mileage but probably ok. I bought a used one for $950 a couple of years ago and 60,000 miles ago and it's still working. My car currently has 312,000.

the USDM 03-07 Accords with 5 speed casings are exactly the same case as the cl7,and unlike the TSX, is made of 100% aluminum...part # 21200-RAP-000 vs our TSX magnesium/aluminum alloy,which is softer, part # 21200-RAR-M00. Swap 6 speed guts and gear selector into us market 2.4 Accord 5 speed case, and you have a ''CL7' 'transmission
