    :ph34r: Hey, new to the boards here.

    My name is Daniel Gomez and I just recently started to study about automotive mechanics to become a mechanic (technician if I can make it into Honda..)

    Anyways, I got a car that has about 135,000 miles on it. I am thinking of doing an engine swap with a B16A engine (which would be a great jump in HP). The thing is though, did they make one for Automatic transmissions?

    If not, where could I Find info on converting auto to manual tranny's?

    well.. first off, what car do you drive/>?

    second, i am sure you caould use an automatic teg trans, but it will also require the auto ECU, which may be harder to find for a VTEC motor than for a non-VTEC dual cam

    Daniel,
    I did this swap a while back and absolutely love it.
    assuming you drive an auto right now, I would say to either sell that car and buy one that is manual allready or else I would read up on doing the auto to manual conversion because it would really be a great waste to have such a great engine and not be able to utilize all of it's power

    If its an OBD1 car, you can use the Auto P28 ecu.

    I drive a 91 Honda Civic Dx - 4 Door.

    Odd car to want to work on, yes, but it's my first car ever (that, and I had to work at a cannery the whole summer to be able to get it !_!).

    you can always change your car to manual.At least its a cabletranny chassis so it shouldnt be hard to source the parts needed.I can get auto pr3 vtec ecus if you really want or need one.
