Just to add this here to link for future searches: Nobody can figure this out, NOBODY! Confirms it to be a 05-06 RSX base gearbox (= 5spd) and describes some characteristics of it.

...and hated it the minute I gest drove it. Get a six speed
Why did you hate it? The missing 6th gear, the lower vehicle speed step up when shifting upwards, or...?

To be more specific I just hate the gear spacing I feel like 2nd and 3rd are way too far apart. Feels like driving a six speed but skipping 3rd gear everytime. And no lsd and taller final drive kill your accelaration..
Thanks for your feedback, I totally understood it now. The NA engine setups need a bit support from the FD to accelerate the car weight right. A boosted setup is much more tolerant if there is a minimum acceleration feeling expected. Got your point.
