So today, I bought something. Something I never thought I'd actually ever acquire. A 2003 Accord V6 6MT transmission from a 6thGen member that had this swapped into his sedan. Very happy to say that I may be able to join an elite group of the 6GA's.

Drove to Columbus, Ohio to pick this thing up. I received the transmission, shifter cables, shifter box, and a few other miscellaneous items that I'll have to wait and see what they are.

So anyone with knowledge here, feel free to chime in and help me out. This will be a fun journey, hopefully ending with a J32 6MT Accord.


Engine:
J32a2 out of a 02 Acura CL Type S Auto
--Around 80k on the motor
Parts to Convert it to a Manual Engine:
--Manual CL Type S Engine Harness
--Manual CL Type S Front Cam Gear
--Manual CL Type S Front Cam Gear Plate
----Reason for this, the manual motors use two cam sensors, auto only uses one.
--Manual CL Type S Crankshaft Gear
--Manual CL Type S Crankshaft Sensor
--Manual CL Type S Crankshaft Sensor Sub-Harness
----Reason for this, the automatic sensor will not work with the new gear or plug into the manual engine harness. Also the manual sensor is just a plug and harness, while is the auto is all connected.

J37 Intake Manifold Upgrade
--J35 Top Plate (Says Honda instead of Acura and has no butterfly valve plate)
--P2R Throttle Body Adapter for J32a2 Throttle Body
--J32a2 Throttle Body
Innovative 60A Engine Mounts
CL Type S Manual Flywheel
P2R EGR Block off Plate
Richie's Harness V4


ECU:
Auto CL Type S ECU
Manual CL Type S ECU
Manual CL Type S Dash Harness Plug mated to Accord dash harness
--This connector is called Connector "E" on the CL Type S
--Accord dash harness Connector "A" is what you want to wire it to (one that goes into the stock ECU)


Transmission:
2003 V6 6Speed Accord Transmission
--80k miles
CL Type S Crankshaft Position Sensor drilled into bellhousing
7th Gen Accord Shifter
CL Type S shifter cables
CL Type S Shift Cables Stay
2003 Accord V6 Manual Starter
Manual CL Type S Shift Boot
03 CL Type S Transmission Mounts
03 CL Type S Master Cylinder
03 CL Type S Slave Cylinder
98-02 Accord Pedals
Exedy Accord V6 6Speed Clutch Kit
CL Type S Manual Trans Crossmember
Stock V6 Automatic Axles

Miscellanous Other Parts:

Maintenance:

Water Pump
Front Main Seal
Rear Main Seal
Axle Seals
Intake Manifold Gasket
Exhaust Manifold Gaskets
Throttle Body Gasket
Timing Belt Tensioners
Spark Plugs

Parts Not Being Used:

Re: Evan's Quest for a 6MT 6GA

Any plans on ECU ?
I too am starting my swap part collection. Found a J35a4 at a local junk yard and still searching for a tranny. Not too sure what ECU to run for these hybrid swaps beside dropping almost $2,000 on a AEM Infinity.

If you're ever thinking of boost, I think it's a great investment and the only real way to gain the most of any intake/headers/exhaust mods.

Re: Evan's Quest for a 6MT 6GA

I have Chris'(RedRyder) box of 6spd parts, if you look up his F/S thread. Here it is, 6Spd Parts

I don't think I even opened the box.

So, if interested and in need of those parts, let me know.

Heading down to the US on Dec. 4th, so I can ship them out from there.
