Default How expensive would it be to convert an Acura Integra into a manual transmission?

I own a 1999 GS Integra with an automatic tranny and it has ABS. It's currently giving me problems (I have another yahoo answers question in the Acura section about this). I'm trying to figure out would it be a good idea to strip out all the automatic tranny junk, TCM, wires, driveline, etc. and just slap on the 5 speed and sell off all the automatic gear? What's the average market value for a job like this?I plan on having a racing shop that I know with serious reputation to do the swap. I figured selling the old tranny for the new one to the shop or to someone else will more than make up for the costs.

It's a pretty expensive proposition.....first - you have to buy the 5 speed transmission and the clutch....then you have to install the clutch and change out all the pedals....and you will have to change out some of the engine control electronics....Best bet? take it to Midas and get the Auto transaxle fixed and then sell it and buy a GS with a manual or keep it....

i would and i have it was a 1994 Honda very same. but tranny went bad so bought a second car with a bad engine and in bad shape and swapped the ecu pedals flywheel and all sensors. ran great the axles were the same so i left my new ones on and drove it until i sold it for twice that amount i paid for it 2500. your trans and senors and the whole wiring is a good project for some one so before buying a 5 speed ask around maybe someone will swap you for theirs. if not. sale cheap around 400- 600 for all that is what you would pay for it at a yard. 300 for trans and 300 for other. you can make more if you sell as a swap. as for your swap it took me three day and only costed 300 for the other 5 speed car.

This is real expensive i was thinking about doing this to one of my Hondas, what you have to do is get a recked acura that is sstandard, and change evrything from that car to your car. Its really hard working. It takes time it will be very expenive, its better to sell your car and get another one. .

no it won't make up the cost for that job labour cost are going to kill you if you where going to do the job yourself i would say hey it's a good project but you are taking it to be done then it would be better fix the tranny or sell as is and get a 5 speed rsx
