Default automatic into a manual transmition?

A lot of people have. Since your car is a Honda, which is also Acura. You might want to check out, I've learned a lot from their boards.

So I heard it wasn't too hard to do the transmission swap, although there will be several things you need to install/replace. One being the clutch, but a lot of people who drive Acura RSX's have done it before.

In my opinion, it is not worth it. For all the money spent doing that, you could have just sold your current car, add that extra money in, and get a better manual transmission car.

a great project, I did it to a 1970 chevy malibu years ago, if you have a donor car to get all the parts from it will turn out great.

The big thing to watch is the gear ratio on the rear end, it might wind up with a low top end.

good luck
