Default I have a 98 Honda Civic Ex 4dr with an automatic tranny. I want to swap it for a manual tranny?

How much would it cost for everything including new tranny, clutch kit, labor and etc?how much would it cost?.. i know its not a good decision but i like this car and i would like to do more things to it.

Not a wise idea. Far easier to return your current EX to stock and sell it and purchase an EX with a manual.

if you really want to make your current car stick the labor is going to cost you the most, because they have to cut the fire wall for the cluch lines. if you do it try to get a cable transmission and not the hydrolic one. you may need a new ECU so that the computer knows that you have control of the rpm's and dosn't act wackey on you. the tranny you can find at a junk yard shouldn't be too much, depending on what you want to do to this car choose your cluch carefully, if you plan on racing and driving it everyday get a ACT stage one stree/ racing clutch or even a stage 2. get your fly wheel reserfaced as well. also you will need the shift linkage and a new center consol that will allow you to fit the shifter intoplace with room to shift. you can find that at the junk yard as well. it will be a pain in the a s s but if you really want it to be stick it will be done. dont be dissaponted if some shops dont want to do it for you. its a lot of work and money for it to happen...you could even find a junked 5 speed civic 96-98 to get all the parts you need to do it instead of buying everything seperate. good luck
