    Hows it going? I know Im a noob and I just registered on here but I need some help.

    I have a 99 ex coupe thats an automatic with the d16y8 vtec motor in it. I want to change this bad boy to a stick. Ive been collecting parts. Im from the NJ / PA area also.

    So far I have:
    1. master cylinder

    2. slave cylinder

    3. clutch kit
    (ordered from: 1998-2000 Honda Civic - Sachs Clutch Kit)

    4. flywheel
    (ordered from: 1992-2000 Honda Civic - Exedy Flywheel)

    5. D16y8 manual trans.

    I tried searching on the forums but I didnt have much luck. I wanted to know if anyone could help me find the other parts I need (which I dont know) and where I could possibly get this auto to manual swap done. (dealer maybe?)

    Once again Im in the NJ / PA area. Any help would be awesome.

    Plan to turbo later:D

    go to your local salvage yard and strip out the parts you need and do it your self

Do's and Don'ts! 56K go do an oil change and come back ....... seri that gave me a good idea of stuff but not 100% of what i was in for. need anything else just post

    I have no idea how to do the work myself. I dont have the tools either.

    Know any shops that might be able to do it? Would the dealer do it?

    I guarantee you that a dealership is not even gonna touch that. You're gonna have to take it to a performance shop. I've heard quotes all the way from $500 to $2500. You'll just have to shop around...

    I want it done whenever. Who changed your car over?
