Rebuilding my K20 Transmission...

I am in the process of rebuilding my stock 6-speed tranny out of my 02 type-s. I was wondering if anyone could help me find a website or page on disassembling my transmission. Just want to be sure there are no hidden snap rings or anything i will need to take off before removing the casing or anything else i should be aware of. I also have a question with what gearset will fit in my transmission casing. Such as the gearset from the newer civic si or anything. I have heard that putting the tsx final drive in our transmission helps alot on top end also? Im not really sure so if anyone could help clear things up with me i would appreciate it. Any suggestions on how i should rebuild my tranny? Thanks.
