[b] i see a lot of good-looking sols on ebay. *but they're all automatic, including the (probably rare) Five-Cylinder del Sol. *Anyone have some experience on swapping a b-series into a del Sol, and meanwhile changing from auto to manual? *I'm wondering how it would look (is there maybe room for a supercharger instead of a turbo?.... is there extra room for bolt-ons?) under the hood. *And, can you just find a dash kit from a manual to get the job done? *Thanks for the comments.
Count the spark plugs, 4... So, it is a 4 cylinder, not 5.
It is the same engine bay at the Civic. So bolt ons...i.e. header, intake, etc.. will fit. A b-series i dont believe you even need a mount kit. About the auto-manual conversion.. Ppl try em, but i would let a shop do it. Try Intercrew (if around dallas), check Calesta's sig. If you are wanting to do it yourself. Find out every little piece you need before you start.
