Okay as some of you may already know I have a 90 accord and now along with the engine swap I want to switch the tranny to a 5 speed. I was wondering what parts would be necessary? About how much I should look to spend for this? Has anyone here done this before?

Peace*

Thanks Chad, SIRH22....do you feel that you get less respect from your friends because your car is an automatic?

Peace*

you need a new ecu, clutch master cylinder, clutch slave cylinder, clutch fluid reservoir, misc clutch lines, clutch pedal assembly, 5spd brake pedal,clutch, flywheel, shift linkage. It is better if you are planning on engine swapping.

i'm about to swap also and so far all the parts that i bought has come up to about $750. the only thing i have left to get is the P2P ECU and fluid lines. and then find someone who will do it pretty cheap.

I have a 91 ex w/ an auto I found a 5 spd lx for $275 and I'm gonna do the swap myself but at my vo-tech ... the easiest way to go is to get a whole nother car....How long do you think it will take you..

Can you explain this statement a little more. If you take all the automatic components out, you shouldn't have to worry about any of the stuff you listed. It should be amatter of wiring the pedals properly. At least this is how it worked for my Prelude.

I don't know what box your talkin bout but all he has to do is set the shift selector plate in park then hold it there with like a silicone sealent, then put your 5 speed in. Your guage cluster will say P when your driving, so you might wanna install a SiR guage cluster.
