Hi, I drive a 98 ls integra.

I was wonder how much would it cost to do a auto to manual conversion.

Would it be cheaper just to get a new motor with the tranny and do it than or what?

What I want to know is how much would it cost to do it. Cause I'm deciding on whether to just do it now or wait until i can get a new motor in it.

Thanks in advance!

why dont you just sell your car to a someone since it is automatic im sure alot of people will be intrested. then you buy a standard car. You might even have some money left over for something else you want.

I've looked into it before a few times, and trust me, it's really not worth the money. You would be better off selling the car.

 

Edit: Spelled stuff wrong

We did one on a 98 Civic for right around 1500 (labor included) it took all of 6 hours.....depending on deals found on parts a teg would be roughly in the same area. Don't expect a garage to be anywhere near that.

Just buying a new car IS the cheapest way to do it. oNLY if you haven't put much time into your car, if you have I'd just do the conversion...that's what I did. I've spent over 72hrs of labor just into the stereo, and I never want to leave this car
.

Mine cost around $2500 but that's including a ITR trans for $1400 (yeah, I know it's high but it only had 3100 miles on it and it was a 2001) Good luck!

or you could read a book and do it for the cost of parts.parts are way less than 2k.. thepartstrader.com and others like it junkyards are real nice... i just got all the parts to do the auto to manual swap on a gen2 for 80 bucks ..yep cant beat reading a book.

I'm considering an auto>manual swap sometime also.

it may be more financially sound on paper to just sell the car and get a manual one, but personally I have a lot of suspension stuff on my car I'd rather not swap over, and I know that everything else is mechanically sound. you always inherit other problems with a different car.

for an LS at least, I estimated buying all the parts individually at Ebay prices to be $1000 minimum, this includes using an existing engine.

I think getting a wrecked/salvage teg for $1000-2000 is the way to go. that way you will have ALL the parts you need, would be able to reference an intact manual car, have an extra engine, and any other resellable part that offsets the cost to well below $1000 I would think. but with a salvage car there's no guarantee the engine or trans work. it's a tradeoff.
