You can't easily do this - it will cost thousands. Finding a Civic with a stick is easy - so you would be much better off to sell yours and buy one with a stick. It will be much cheaper and easier than converting what you have.

Depends on who you know. My brother works for a Honda dealership and he was going to convert my accord to a five speed and it was only going to cost 200 dollars including the parts.

I call B.S. on the $200. to get it done correctly it would be well over $5,000. You need the tranny, tranny mounts, shift linkages, clutch master cylinder, hydraulic hoses, complete wiring harness from the 5-speed car, ECU from the 5-speed car, center console for the interior, shifter, shift boot, shift knob, axles, flywheel, clutch pedal assembly, and a lot of time.

not sure on cost but here is a write up on a 96-00 honda civic, maybe you'll see if you want to do it after reading what's involved.

don't open a can of worms. you will be just wasting your time and money. for starter , the front sub-frame is different . your "PCM" is different . majority of your engine and tranny mounts are different . your drive axles are different . all your wire harness are different. hope you have a lots of wasted time and money to spend . just buy a civic with a manual trans.
