    he'll still be throwing the shifter the same distance at the fulcrum.

    Nice swap, how long did it take you to do it?

    Is the motor j-spec? Do you know how many miles? You get a new water pump and timing belt? How about a clutch? Does it have lsd? I know I would have to spend close to 3k with all that plus lsd if I installed it all on my own.

    $2000 was price with labor and parts for the swap, I bought motor seperately(USDM). I got new timing belt, all new gaskets, seals oil bump, shit like that. It runs absolutely perfect, but i'm frying that fuckin clutch(stock wit about 5k on it) cuz I can't drive lol.

    WHOA! So you nver had a manual before the swap? Not good, be prepared to replace it within a year or so of glazing it.

    A big :thumbsup: to the auto to manual swap. That must've been a bitch with a hydrolic clutch.

    Really, its not at all. the joy's of honda. the hole for the Clutch Master cylinder is already there. There is just a little grommet in the way, that needs to be thrown out. As for the line, its one little line, and if you use an OEM line, all the studs are already there on the firewall.

    Only "hard" part of the entire swap is the pedal's, and thats just because I have no patients, there is very little room to work with, your upside down, and when I was doing this swap, it was 10* for the High. It was ass cold!
