    You're not going to get much help coming on here and talking to members like that. Take it easy. And search on here and V6P.net, you will find what you're looking for.

    Here is my collection of information that I have on doing the swap.

    Another member who just did the swap with accord tranny and shifter (shows
    his issues with tranny mounts towards end):
    http://www.v6performance.net/forums/showthread.php?t=194475

    Talks a bit about 7th gen shifter and cables, and about welding to tranny
    which we shouldn't need to do any more:

    Some pics of someone putting the pedals in:

    Parts diagrams for the swap: Both should be the same, but I'd rather be
    safe. http://writer.zoho.com/public/richiev6/Untitled1

    Info concerning the pedals and spacers required, taken from harness thread:

    "It is dimpled in your fire wall and will have to be drilled out (3 holes)
    and spacers need to be added between the firewall and pedal bracket.

    I buy 3/4" solid bar stock, drill it and cut it in 10mm legnths.

    BTW I have done about 8 AT->MT conversions in the last year.....
    "-NVA-AV6<http://www.v6performance.net/forums/member.php?u=20980>


    "If you do not add the spacers you will not get enough pedal travel to
    properly operate the clutch and you will eaither not be able to release all
    the way or engage all the way, LOL ask Telele, he was pulling his hair out
    for about a year because of this, the people he had do his swap before
    meeting me did not put the spacers in and he thought he needed a new clutch
    and/or tranny. Needless to say he was a bit relieved and pissed when I put
    the spacers in and all his issues went away." - NVA-AV6


    You can email Richie, the main man on swaps at
    [email protected] if you run into any snags, or register on
    v6performance.net and send a pm to
    NVA-AV6<http://www.v6performance.net/forums/member.php?u=20980>

    Thats my collection of info.... total cost was around 3k with the harness...
    maybe a little under. But my mechanic gave me an awesome deal. If you're
    going to do it on your own it could be even cheaper. Just search on
    autopart.com and car-part.com and rockauto.com or whatever it is and keep a look out for a cheap tranny.
