I current own an automatic 96 civic DX and I recently learned how to drive manual (wow, so much funnn!! and easy). Since then, driving my automatic wasn't the same, so I wanna go manual. I've been reading these forums (and others) quite a bit and noticed that most people want to avoid the auto-manual conversions. While on another site (honda-tech.com <-- where i got this site from), they are more relaxed on converting auto-manual and dropping engines that are not recommended. But anyhow, since this would be my first engine swap (IF i decide to), i would swap in a b16a2 (obd2 correct?) and as for the auto-manual conversion, I've found a few threads such as http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=510597. (is it that simple?) Or, I could sell/trade the car and go with one of these vehicles: 94+ delsol; 91 crx; 94+integra gsr. I have about 6 months to decide and by that time I should have at least 3500-5000 saved up. But I don't think Ill spend 5grand on a first swap.
