Default I am looking to put on a better transmission on my 1994 Acura Integra RS, but which one?

I bought a 1994 Acura Integra RS as a project car, the b18b1 engine is easy to modify, I put an aftermarket exhaust on it and some ultralight 16in rims with uni direction tires on it. My 3rd/4th gear synchronizes are starting to go from hard shifting at high RPM's and I am looking to put a different transmission that gives me more torque from the line. I don't know which transmissions will fit though, or if there would be any problem. I have the original 5 speed standard on it and it's quick, but just not where I want it to be yet. I want to fix the transmission before doing anything else to it. Any suggestions?

I am going to give you a real simple lesson here on mechanical engineering. The engine in your Integra is not designed for low-end torque, which "you want from the line." It is a high revving engine that produces its max torque at higher rpms- most likely at 4500. Secondly, a transmission is not going to improve this. Replace the synchronizers, and put in a performance CLUTCH, and stop with the stupid street racing before you kill you or someone else.

any b series tranny will fit.

depending on your goals and what you're designing it for, i would either go with the b16 tranny or the b18c1 tranny. do some research on them and their gear ratios and go from there.
