    my first post on this forum. i wouldn't say it's too hard. i'm about to convert mine and it's pretty much bolt in parts. my friend just did one also and he said the holes for the bolts were already there since they made the auto and manual chassis are pretty much the same out of the factory.

    that link said to leave in the gear selector switch stuck into the park position, but wouldn't it be easier to just take the ground wire (black) and the park position wire (grn/wht i think) and connect them so it would think that it's in park and you could get rid of that clunky POS?
    just my $0.02 but if anyone has any feedback that would be cool.

    Easier, no. Better, yes. It's a lot easier to leave something sitting in your car than disconnecting it and rewiring... even if it is only 2 wires. :)

    hey whats up ppl, i'm new here. I got a 96 integra and wanna do an auto to manual swap sometime in the future along w/ an engine swap. It all depends if i get a co-op cuz i'm in college right now. But does anyone know how much more it'd cost if i get the auto to manual on top of the engine swap?

    its about 250-500 in parts from a junkyard.

    you need the interior peices, the shifter, linkage, clutch master, clutch slave (should come with tranny), hydro lines, pedal assembly, etc. little parts that add up fast
