    hello everyone, i had a 2001 accord that i swapped the h22 into, it was a really nice sleeper car, 4 door until it got smoked in the front, total write off, airbags went off and the car is screwed, so im considering gettin an accord v6 and converting it to standard and then supercharge it with a comptech supercharger. which tranny will i need that'll bolt on to the v6 block and will the manual tranny parts, shift linkage, clutch, clutch master and slave cylinder, and other stuf like that work on the v6 to convert it to standard? i think i could make it wrk but just lookin for opinions. or my other option is save the h22 and put it in another accord. thnx for readin and replying

    why not just buy a v6 with a manual?

    save the h22 and put it in a new 4--cyl chassis. it's the most cost-effective thing to do.

    98-02 Honda Accord v6's dont come in manual

    Its to hard to switch a v6 into a 4 cyl chasis so just buy a v6 accord, I believe you said that what ur doing

    YES^^^^




    But here is the complete parts list if u get a 6 spd u might as well switch the motor to o u dont hav to have the harness but to bolt a CLS Tranny to an accords j30 here is te list....

    ?"

    The Module
    Overview
    The swap module allows for the interfacing of the 6 speed manual transmission with the stock Accord 4 speed automatic transmission computer.

    Without the module the following feature will not work.
    -VTEC
    -Full rev limit
    -Speedo
    -Reverse lock out
    -Reverse light
    -Passing inspection due to CEL

    Parts list
    The parts used for this swap are quite simple everything is available from Honda[​IMG] except the harness. Try to get as many parts off the donor car as possible. Here are some diagrams of the parts needed.

    You can purchase parts and view detailed diagrams at Honda parts sites such as www.hondaautomotiveparts.com and www.acuraautomotiveparts.org. I find these are great sites for diagrams which allow you to see what is involved in a swap.

    Mounts
    The only mounts that are required to be change are the transmission mounts. The rear engine mounts can also be changed with a CL-S mount which is stronger but is not required. For the transmission mounts use the ones from the 03 CL-S 6 speed.

    Axles and Intermediate shaft
    The stock axles and intermediate shaft work just fine with the 6 speed transmissions. The CL-S axles are suppose to be stronger and thicker.

    Pedals
    You can use either the 03 CL-S or I4 Accord pedals.

    Clutch hydraulics
    You can use the clutch lines from the CL-S as well as the master cylinder. I have tried using a master cylinder from a mid 90's Civic as well and it works just fine and is a good bit cheaper.

    Clutch Disc, Pressure Plate and Flywheel
    You can use the clutch disc, pressure plate and flywheel from any 6 speed transmission. The Accord, TL and CL all use the same clutch but the CL uses a different flywheel which doesn't matter with this harness.

    Shifter and Linkages
    The I4 Accord shifter and linkages are not a direct fit and will have to be modified. The only linkages and shifter that are a direct fit are the from the 03 CL-S.

    6 Speed Transmissions

    6 Speed transmissions from the following cars can be used. But the Accord and TL transmissions will have to be modified slightly by welding on a stud for the shift linkage. (more on this later)
    03-07 Accord V6 MT (NO LSD)
    03 CL-S MT (LSD)
    04-08 TL MT (LSD)

    Special Preparations
    Before installing the harness the mechanical aspects and stock wiring should be checked for functionality. This can done be driving the car in limp mode, by removing the transmission range switch from the automatic transmission and connecting it to the engine harness. Then by manipulating the the switch to the N or P position using a screw driver. Test to see if the car will drive. This will eliminate difficult troubleshooting due to the possibility of problems with both the car and harness.


    Common Questions
    Q: What car will this harness work on.
    A: 98-02 Accord V6

    Q: Will the harness work with a TL or CL.
    A: Not yet we are working on the Type-S ECU currently. The harness might work on the 99 TL and will soon be tested.

    Q: Can I use a I4 or Prelude transmission.
    A: No only the listed transmission will work.

    Q: Can I use this harness with the J32A2 Type-S ecu.
    A: No, we are currently working on a harness that works with a Type-S motor. We hope this can be applied to the Accord, TL and CL.

    Q: How can I get a harness.
    A: The design has been modified for a easy install and will be mass produced soon. The first ones should be ready in around April.

    **Orignal Post**
    Hey guys, I am swaping in a 01 J30A1 and 6 speed into my 99 accord, since I bent my valves. This time I am working at home at a much slower pace so I will have time to take pictures and document the process.

    So far I have prepped the new motor and removed the old motor from the car. I am waiting for my new clutch to come in. I will be running a distributor until I can figure out how to get a 01 ecu programmed by Honda.

    As of September of last year I have been experimenting with swaping a 6 speed transmission into a 6th gen accord v6. As of last week I have designed, built and tested all the circuitry that solves all issues that people currently have with swaping in just a 6 speed tranny. Such as running check engine light and transmission fault free, working speedometer, vtec engaging and reverse shift lock out solenoid.

    Several members have contacted me on building modules and harnesses that will allow them to run 6 speed tranny in there 6th gen accord. I was wondering how many people would be interested in this. I am planning on having custom printed circuit boards made and the larger the order the less expensive it will be. I am also thinking about offering a full swap kit with all the parts nesseccery for the swap including tranny. Basically you just pick up a pallet and all parts will be included.

    I just noticed i have the resolution turned down really bad on my camera. The next set of pics will be more clear.

    New motor, well only 28k

    We should review this stuff and consider throwing it in the ref section. The price is coming way down on j series, and companies are starting to offer mount kits. I think it will start gaining popularity.

    99 honda accord v6 sedan

    Hello everyone...i was thinking about this question and i honestly had no one to ask. So im wondering if you guys can help me out...I live in vermont where when it snows...we get alot..and an AWD car would be great. But i love my AC6 too much...so i was wondering if there was any way to swap it to an AWD. I know that itd prolly cost alot and need alot of new welding work done and everything but i was just wondering about it.

    There might be a way to do it using parts from the V6 AWD Acura cars, but there's certainly no established or standard method of doing it (i.e. you're not going to find a write-up anywhere online), so it would need to be a completely custom job, and there's no way in hell it would be cost effective. You'd spend more money doing a one-off conversion like that then you would on just selling your car or trading it in to get an AWD vehicle.

    Is it really that bad in Vermont? I mean, I live in Michigan and drive an Integra year round and do just fine. At least it's not RWD...

    Did you ever put together a package to sell for the accord tranny swap? I'm very interested in this. What was the final cost for you?

    I don't think he was ever offering swap packages for sale, I think he just copied and pasted that from somewhere to show what would be needed.
