    ive got a 97 accord se with 4 cyl. non vtec.

    its my first car and when i initially bought it, well i didn't get to pick my first car.

    so what happened was i didn't get to have a car with manual tranny.

    here is a deal. now im about to go to college majoring mechanical engineering, i thought i'd be a good experience to swap my tranny. i know it'd be better off with engine swap and just have tranny that comes with it. but i don't think that im gonna keep this car. i just want to have a little fun driving not just seating in my car holding steering wheel.

    SO! here is my question. what do i need to do tranny swap besides the tranny? i know basic stuff like clutch pedal, master and slave cylinder (actually im not sure what the slave cylinder is used for) but not the details.

    and do i need to get the motor out? i don't think i have to but just want to make sure.

    i'd like a list of EVERYTHING i need. yes i said EVERYTHING.

    if you have pictures of u or anyone doing this job, plz post them for me.

    thanks a bunch, especially for reading this (got longer than i expected it to be :p) post.

    Happy New Year!!!

    Search the Accord forum. Somebody posted a how-to with pictures a while back.

    EDIT: Here it is: http://hondaswap.com/accord/how-auto-manual-88047/

    Don't think that means you don't need to search for stuff in the future though...

    leave it or sell it. it isn't worth it to do the conversion.

    just save up for a car that is just how you want it.
