    I just bought a 92 Honda Civic DX Hatchback, unfortunately I payed a very low price because it was an automatic. I didn't care to much because alot of people said any good mechanic shop could do an auto to manual conversion for me during the swap. Is this true first off? Is it easy and/or expensive? Secondly, I want my car to be a general daily driver, yet I want to get the best quarter mile possible. I have no smog laws in Canada, and I don't care much about losing a little drivability or mileage for some good 1/4 times. What swap would get the best times, yet me an easy install and offer good room for mod's/turbo apps/ etc..

    Thanks in advance for any info. I just wanna see what engine has the best reputation, and if my auto to manual swap will be too much of a pain.

    P.S. My dad is a mechanic and said doing that swap I would never get it lined up right and would burn clutches left right and center.

    1. yes they can do an auto to manual conversion.
    2. not sure of the price for conversion.
    3. how much are u willing to spend.
    4. h22, b18b/c1/c5/,b20, lsvtec or crvtec.
    5. you wont burn clutches but if the motor and tranny do not line up correcly you will beak axles.

    :withstupid: its either set up right or its set up wrong. i dont think you would ever get a chance to burn a cluth with the wrong tranny cause i dont think you could ever get the wrong parts to work together enough to even move the car to burn the cluth in the first place. with what your doing and a base model DOHC Vtec motor (b16) i think you would be looking at about 3500 to get the manual swap and the engine and get the engine in the car but thats in temrs of are money and prices, not sure what available out there and what the prices are

    FYI: Ontario, Canada has E-test which is Emissions testing every two year.

    SMOG and e-test sound about the same too me.
