    pretty sure i know the answer to this but can you take an engine that was auto and slap a 5speed on it with a 5speed ecu and drop it into a 5speed car?

    yes, 99% of the engine will be the same. Some auto's have smaller cam profiles, but in general, they are the same damn thing.

    no your going to need to get new axles. the tranny should bolt right up and your going to need a new t bracket. be sure to get the right bracket.

    if you have the tranny mout for the 5spd, you won't need to buy one.. but the auto mount is different.

    ok, the car is manual, and you have everything that came out of your car.
    just putting a new engine in?

    if you already have everything why do you need axles? are your old ones busted?
    if you need new axles call up your local parts house and ask them if the part numbers are different between an auto and a manual.
    that will take care of that.

    if the car is manual, then just change the engine. you have to take the torque converter off if its still attached to the engine. then put your flywheel and clutch on.

    he's not converting a car to manual from auto. just changing the engine out.

    should be a direct replacement.

    call autozone, or honda. give them the information about the car. and then have them look up the part numbers for both auto and manual.
    same numbers, same part.
    different numbers, then it wont work.

    It means that oil is getting into your intake some how, there a couple ways, bad seals between the plugs? Could also be circulating from the valve cover and back in the intake.
