    I have a 2001 accord ex coupe auto with a good engine in it and I found a 1998 manual ex 4dr that i could prolly get for $500, can I really just take my good engine and throw it in the manual 1998?

    Im going to take guess you want a manual, if that is the case it would be a much easier and cheaper to swap the 5spd into the 01.

    Edit: also you can make your money back parting out whats left on the 98 after your done.

    Yes you can just take your engine, swap the flexplate & flyweel, and bolt it in and go if you want the 5spd car.

    Umm...swapping engines shouldn't take more than a day. Swapping trans takes a little more work.
