    Buy a civic that's already a 5 speed. A person that converted a 94 Accord from auto to manual said he spent 900 bucks for parts and help on the install.

    its about 200 bucks for parts from the junk yard it is easier to do if you plan to go with a cable tranny rather than a hydro

    werd, I was gonna convert mine to a manual, but after thinkin bout it, I'm just gonna save up bout 3 grand, sell my car, buy a B18C and a 5spd shell. Much cheaper and easier.

    so in other words it'll be easiest to just do a full motor and tranny swap. i'm not selling my car i've dumped to much cash into it. any one know where the cheapest place to get motors is (toronto area preferably)

    I think I know what your saying,and I agree that you can get the parts at a junkyard for way cheap,but Jesus could you make any less sense saying it?

    ok there is only about hhmmm 10-15 more parts involved besides the pedal assembly and the shifter, trannys aren't anywhere near that cheap i'd like to see your 100 tranny ha cause if your goin to go that cheap you might as well wreck the car cause its not going to be running in about a week anyways, but look it up and call around i beat money you'll change your mmind, my previous civic was auto and its just to much of a pain to convert, you'd honestly be better off buying a car thats already manual

    If you plan it out the work can be done in a day,no problem.If your swapping out your motor anyway,everything will be apart.I've seen whole motor,tranny,axle shiftlinkage ECU's ,everything for the swap and conversion go for $200.If you offer to buy the whole car from a junkyard,you can usaully get it a lot cheaper.
