    I personally would get as much stuff that goes with a manual because the auto ecu will have a different mapping then the manual I beleive but dont quote me look into it more and yes u need the pedals and everything from amanual

    remember to wire in the reverse switch so your reverse light will work!:D
    just plug in the 5speed ecu, no conversions needed! some ef's dont have a clutch switch, but if it does your can bypass it using a button or a toggle (kill switch) for your starter! other then that.... Have fun putting in the pedal assembly!

    I didnt mean he could use the auto ecu,i just meant that he does not have to get a 5spd engine harness,there will just be a couple extra plugs near the tranny that will not be used.As for the conversion Rywire - Automatic To Manual Conversion

    You can use ur auto ecu if u wanna be cheap it wont run right but itl run i did the same shit in my hatch i took out a blown d15 90 civic -to a d15b7(92-95),the harness from the auto matic harness is fine but ir ur runnin a mpfi throttle bottle gotta get a SI wire harness.if u decide to use your auto harness there's going to be a plug on the rear of your block under your throttle alittle more to the left of the middle lol..i also did the auto to manual swapp also and it came outtt pefect make sure u dontt do any shortcuts..pedal's wern't bad as i thought it would be,drop ur sterring column.. dont try and squeez it in there it could bend...ur welcome..
