It doesnt sound too hard to me, but ive never tried with a integra, but have done civics.

You need to

A) use your automatic computer and splice some of its gear shift indicator wires to trick it into thinking its in neutral

B) Use a manual parts car to get the clutch pedal,master cyl, lines, slave cyl. (brake and gas too maybe)

C) Use the manual shifter and make a hole in the floor for it to come through. from your automatic shifter there may be a hole im not sure. but an option is to find a manual car, cut the shifters floor hole and a few inches around it out, then weld it in place on your automatic cars floor with the center cut out. that way you can use factory rubber grommets ect.

I think those will be the main things. i believe you can use the automatic computer but have some wiring to do (if your new, you should learn to search forums because youll be doing a lot of it with a build like this) or use a standard transmission integra computer.

Im pretty sure youll have to get the gas, brake, clutch pedals out of a manual car, bc the automatic brake pedal is too wide when switching to a manual setup with three pedals. the locations on the firewalls for them are likely very obvious and you may or may not need to do some drillng on the firewall but its minor and shouldnt be much of a setback
