6 Speed conversion

This is not a DIY. Its simply here to show you that it can be done, and done with no major modification. Its here to give you pics and a parts list. Its here simply as a aid for those willing to try it. Dont ask for a DIY instructions. You can ask for help though.

As many of you know im doing the conversion. Im going to sticky this for a while as i do it. Ill post pics as i work on it and post coments as i find stuff. Im going to close it to keep it clean and easier to follow but you will be able to post in the other thread.
here are a few starter pics. More pics will follow with more details as i do stuff.
here is the tranny removed and most all the wiring removed from the engine.
as seen in these pics there is a ton of wiring and honda didnt make it the easist to get to alot of it.




Started gutting the interior. Its amazing what you find with every thing removed. I found 15.43$ in change under the carpet thanks to the usless coin holder with 200,000 miles of use. (also saw there was a little more spilled soda than i thought

Here is pulling the engine out. Came out really nice. I had to cut the eshaust pipe though, i couldnt unbolt the cat from the factory down pipe or the b pipe. No biggy, ill either reweld it or get a new custom made pipe.





Empty engine bay. Note the mess of wiring.




My neighbor acting like his usual self

Its a 4x4 with out a engine and tranny. Im going to have to look into different springs, the manual tranny is supposed to weigh 150 pounds less than the auto.

Here are a few pics of the clutch pedal mount. I discovered today that the firewall already has the spot for the clutch pedal. You have to remove the bracket that is spot welded in for the parking brake pedal. Once removed you can see the stamped areas where its supposed to be passed thry the firewall. They are most likely there becayse the car shares its platform with the accord.

Here is the pic of the parking brake removed and the mount that will need to be removed.




Here is what it looks like with it removed. My spot weld drill bit broke and wasnt able to get a new one late in the day, so i cut the bracket off. I accidentally drilled to far trying to use a normal bit to drill them out. (doesnt matter since the large hole thats visible needs to be drilled out for the clutch piece any way

Well First 2nd Gen TL with a Clutch pedal!

Holed drilled thru the firewall







Mounted to the firewall


here is where the master cylender comes thru the firewall on the engine side. Its tight spaces, but it fits. I still need to hook up the res tank to it and run the lines, but im going to do that once the engine and tranny are in. Ill get back to more of this later.

Ok well i mounted the tranny to the engine and set it in the engine compartment to test fit for clearance. I need the bolts to the mounts that im missing to get it to sit accuratly in there but its extremly close right now (have slightly smaller bolts slid into place on the tranny mounts on driver side).

It sits higher than the TL-P motor by quite a bit









BUT
It fits.




Im not sure how much the engine rocks under load, but there is around 1/2 inch min at its closest, of clearance across the intire top of the IM. Now i dont believe that the plastic engine cover will fit with out hitting? and im not sure if the hood liner will fit. I guess ill find out down the road wether it hits once i can start driving it.

here are a few of the header (no fitment issues or resonance)





this is the jog in the pipe for the rear for the manual motor mount. the auto doesnt need that jog

All done and running great. There is about 1000 miles on it now. I have a few little things to take care of with tabs and clips. I still want to repaint teh engine cover and cai, and front radiator trim piece body color. I also want to get my carpet cleaned and get new floor mats. Mine have 200k miles of hard use.

In the upcoming ill most likely start to put together a parts list of what i used. Hopefully i wont be the only one for long with this conversion

If you decide to buy it new BRAKE PEDAL ASSY 46600-S3M-A51

Clutch pedal. (this can be from a few cars, i took mine from a 90s civic. it was almost a direct bolt in.
It uses 3 points to bolt in only 2 lined up. I modified a bolt and shim to make it bolt up in the 3rd spot)

If you decide to buy it new you will need the pedal and mount CLUTCH PEDAL 46910-S3M-A01 & CLUTCH PEDAL BRACKET 46990-S84-A01

Shift Boot 83414-S3M-A01ZA
Shift Knob 54102-SL0-023ZB

If you have a header you will either have to have the XS header or COmptech header for the manual. Other wise it wont fit
You will be able to reuse the stock manifolds

If you already ahve a Type-s you MAY Not need these????
Right side cabin to engine comp harness 32100-S3M-A12
