    Now I have an 1991 CRX DX and it has an auto tranny. I was goin to make it an manuel but it's to much work and it's never goin to be 100% good. So I looked and they have an ZC with an auto tranny, and a B16A1 with an auto tranny. So ether on of these I would LOVE to have in my car but the problem is that what AXLE'S,SHIFT LINKAGE CABLES, and ECU do I use?

    The conversion can be done well....100% Its no harder then swapping a motor/trans/axles/link/ecu into your CRX.......
    Its a big disadvantage to be AT. CRX against CRX....the manual will walk all over the AT. But a swap is fun to drive for sure.

    Look into other articles on the conversion. The pedal change over is a little bit of a pain but the trans, shift linkage, axles, ecu
    is all there when you purchase the 'swap' You can still do the AT swap but I don't see it being that beneficial for driving or even re-sale.

    Stick with the A/T to M/T swap, pretty easy on that chassis. I have seen people do the A/T swap with nothing but issues.

    That's what I heard and what I was thinking. The only thing they sad I needed to do is to get the EUC upgraded.
