    Depends on the deals you can get. If you can find a wrecked 98 lude, then you can get all the parts you need. But, if you haev to source parts individually, then its going to get expensive.

    Depending on your year of accord, it could be real cheap or it could be real expensive.

    Dont rely on people on the internet to do the research for you, you need to scower junkyards to see whats going on and the local paper to find cars for parts.

    Besides if I had a 98 'lude that was automatic, I'd try to sell it and find one that was manual.

    I highly recommend buying a manual car. Its a lot of work to convert to manual, sometimes not worth it, especailly in your case. Your car is too new, if you ever needed to sell it, your shit out of luck.
