Parts + labor, probably about 10,000 bucks.

It would be better to get a manual civic and start with that then converting a automatic to a stick. And I hope you got a b16a2 that comes with a hydro tranny and not a B16a1 that comes with a cable tranny. Then thats another problem.

The motor swap is not going to be that much, if the car was a manual already about $3,000 including the motor. The pricey part is the auto to manual conversion. This will be in the $4,500-$7,000 range. You need the Manual ECU, Manual wiring harness, hydraulic lines, clutch pedal assembly, interior center console, shifter, shift boot, shift knob, axles, clutch master cylinder, and shift linkages.

well swap itself would be about 500 to 700 becuause of wiring and some parts you going to need however you have to get the hasport mounts that run about 400 because there the only ones that are going to have the bracket for the auto to manuel conversion. the pedals also part your going to need and a few others so i would say anywhere from 1500 to 1900 because of labor and parts your going to need. i don't recommend it because its really expensive but if you have the money and can get the parts cheap sure why not. but expect to be running around and make sure whoever you get to do the swap knows and has done it before. its alot of parts to change. i seen it done before so its not impossible but it is expensive.

wow lots of wrong answer, the auto maunal swap $700-1000 extra on top of the swap, avg B16 swap cost $2500-3000, so total, $3200-4000 for the swap, it would be better and cheaper for you to sell the EG and get a maunal one. Shops like One 6 motorsports, Top Setup and Speed Quest are all IL shops that can do the swap for you, make sure you ask if they wire the revese lights for the maunal converison. By the way you can do a B-serious swap with out a B-serious tranny. good luck

Under 4000 for sure it is a fairly easy swap to do since they should have came with that motor to begin with they might want to sell you on buying parts like motor mounts axels etc just to get more from you so check the merchandise before they put it in and make sure they don't tell you afterward that "we decided to put in this and this and this...." truth is you could probably do it your self but being the auto to manual you might want to get a shop to do it.
