    I am a new member to the honda swap forums. I'm currently in the process of swapping a J-Series V6 into my 95 Civic Sedan. I talked to Hasport and they make the mounts and the swap axles. Just wondering if anyone else has attempted to do the swap and if so where can I find a transmission. I can't seem to find a 6 Speed manual trans. other than buying one brand new. Any other help would be appreciated.

    First, you need a 2003 Accord 6 speed trans.
    Dont go for the TL Type S.
    The reasion i say that is because the Type S trans will throw up more codes then the Accord, and the gears are the same as the Accord, its just not worth the money.
    [​IMG]
    The part that is shiny is where you have to grind and drill to make the trans mount to fit.
    The Accord has this pedrilled, so its easy to put in.

    My friend just put a V6 in my Ek, and he's going to do a Eg soon.

    Im running full skunk2 suspension because of the the extra 100 lbs, so far the its not that bad........i really havent pushed her to the limit yet because we are still working on the wireing harness.
    The wireing is the biggest pain in the ass you will ever has to do, i say find some else to do if you never did a wire conversion befor. And because my ride is a OBD2 and yours is a OBD1, its a lot diff. Mine is a lot harder to do because of the emissions,......then theres the RPM tack, because your car was a 4 and then a 6 it will be throw off a well.
    So to sum it up, to do the swap is easy as hell...........the wireing is to far out there for me........and then there is the hood, i know what i am useing, but i know that i am going to get flamed hard because it looks like a ricer, but what you got do, this thing is a neck snaper.

    What ECU is needed to do this swap? Im looking to do this in my 93 EG hatch...
    And what year model Accord should I pull the V6 from???
    Also is there anything you have to sacrifice in order for this engine to fit? a/c or power steering perhaps?

    If you have a chance to pick up a 03 CL-S (6 speed) or even a 03 TL-S (6 speed)
    It would help clear up a lot of your prob's.
    But with my set up, i used a 00 Honda Odyssey ECU.
