It's kinda a pain, i did it once, before you start you gotta ask yourself, is it really worth? or would you be better off just buying a used 91 that is a manuel tranny. and if you got any special parts in your auto, just swap em' and then sell your auto.

LOL, wow... Funny question but I'm online now for entertainment so I won't yell at you. It is not worth the time or effort to do this conversion on a 1991 Honda. Is this a show car or race car? The question is just ridiculous but i'll try to help you since I have punished you enough. You will need manual transmission, new clutch, new flywheel, new starter, new engine computer, clutch pedal, clutch cable or clutch master cylinder if it's a hydraulic clutch, not to mention that you may also need new motor mounts on such an old vehicle. I don't know why anyone would do this but I have heard of people in my Ford Probe car club that had done it, of course they were building race cars... If you aren't doing the labor yourself you won't be able to afford it... Labor/parts will cost at least $1500 for a shop to do it. Best bet would be to buy a crashed parts car so that you can get all the parts... Also you will need a new wiring Harness from the engine computer as well as the ecu itself. Good luck.

Good luck with that. Why don't you just trade in your car and buy another one with a manual?

I've done this to my 91 Honda Prelude, some things might be different.You don't need a wiring harness, or a new ECU, just toss the TCU away. If you were going from MT-AT then you would need a different ECU+TCU. Don't listen to the domestic ricer with the probe. If you haven't actually done it, don't give people advice on it. These are some things that you will need...Jack with jackstands...you'll need to figure out if you're gonna remove the auto tranny from above or below the car, so you might want a cherry picker as well. The auto tranny weighs a hell of alot more than the 5spd5spd tranny w/startershift cable linkagesshiftermaster cylinderslave cylinderlower clutch lineclutch pressure regulatorclutch pedal settranny mounts...you would need a rear 5spd tranny mount as the autos dont have one.shifter cable bracketclutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing.flywheel w/flywheel boltsYou might need a 5spd halfshaft (intermediate shaft) but i'm not sure with your accordyou will also need a new lower radiator hose, they are different lengths. You need to relocate the battery ground wire, and get a new heater core return hose.I also had to drill through the frame, because the auto tranny mounts differently than the 5spd. It's not a big deal, the location of where you need to drill is right next to the auto holes. You will need 4 grade 8 bolts and nuts.In order to get the pedals in, you will need to unbolt the steering shaft and drop it down from the dashYou'll need lots of time and patience, you should do a lot of research before doing this swap. Good luck!
