It is a lot of work. Since you don't have much experience and your car is basically stock, you should sell it. Then go out and buy a car that is already manual.

 

Even if you had experience, swapping the AT to M would significantly lower the value of the car.

if you do decide to sell it and get a manual, you should stick to a four door. something about a four door ej sedan is hotness in my book, i actually think its way better than a four door integra.

lol.......anyway......I think the reason that I haven't sold this car and moved on to something else is.....well.......to tell you the truth.....I don't know what it is. To me, this is just one of those cars that sticks to you........I like it.........and for some reason I like it even more than newer civics.........it's the car itself. I just.......want to make it better I guess. I hope some of you know what i'm saying. Also......I have considered it and I guess it isn't completely necessary to have a MT.......I could always go AT and just do the engine swap.

Yeah.....I figure that i'll just talk to the import specialists place in town and see what they say about it......I'll ask them about the clutch/floor board clearance and stuff. Thanks for the help guys

That clutch floorboard stuff is just another rumor.

 

At to Manual swap has nothing to do with clutch pedal clearance, but what do I know, I am just another ricer.

 

If you are that attached to a stock civic then have fun with your swapped auto...

alright good to know.

 

kinda seemed farse when i heard about it too.. why would they make a car differently because of the transmission.

 

 

Hopefully that is a rhetorical question accidentally posted.

 

Off to the bar in a few...peace.

If anything, you might not have a dead pedal. There shouldn't be any clutch pedal issues. My CRX had the dead pedal, and obviously has no clutch issues after the AT-MT conversion.

According to my mechanic. You gotta have the tranny,pedal assembly, ecu,cables,5sd housing,slave and master cylinder, gauge cluster, and mt center console. Not including the clutch, flywheel, and far as the pedal assembly he says that all the bodys where made the same should bolt right up. I'm thinking of doing this swap also.

You won't need the center console (for most vehicles - not specifically sure about his EJ) They just use the normal MT opening and screw the AT shifter plate under it. If you pull it out you should be able to remove the whole plate assembly and you can screw in a manual boot. Should not need a new gauge cluster either, although looking at the AT shift lights on an MT car will be kind of funny.
