I want to do an auto to manual conversion. I found a couple people that said they can do it, but i would rather find someone else to do it for various reasons. one said he wasn’t too confident and if anything does happen he doesnt want to be held responsible. and other little things that make me not trust these couple people. So does anyone know of any shops or mechanics in NJ that have experience with Honda’s and that could do my auto to manual conversion for a decent price!!! Any help would be greatlly appreciated. Thanks in advance
if you do enough research, you can figure out what types of people would be skilled enough to do it. hell by the time youre done reading, you’ll know more about it than any of them and possibly can do it yourself or guide them.
ive done some research and looked at couple of honda’s on the internet that did auto to manual. i also managed to look at a list of parts need for an auto to manual conversion on an integra. its just a matter of confidence. which i dont have in myself, and the couple people i have talked to dont give me that sense of confidence that i can drive away and not expect to have any “dangerous” problems. so it would be great if anyone from nj knows a shop or mechanic that has a good amount of experience with hondas and should be able to perform the conversion??? thanks
I KNOW A MECHANIC THAT CAN DO IT. HE HAD DONE IT BEFORE BUT NEVER TO A G2 INTEGRA I HAVE SEEN HIM DO IT TO A G3 INTEGRA AND A VERY PROFFESIONAL JOB HE SWAPPED A AUTOMATIC BLOWN LS INTO A GSR MANUAL IF YOU WANT MORE INFORMATION JUST EMAIL ME I AM ALSO IN NEW JERSEY SO IT SHOULD BE PRETTY CONVENIENT
you can do it yourself with a couple other buddies no problem. It’s not really hard as much as it is time consuming, we worked on mine for 3 days straight from 10 in the morning untill midnight. Then we had a couple parts problems but finally got it done. The wiring is the only thing you have to make sure you do right and it’s all in Shenrie’s write up.
droppedteggy: u know around how much he charged for labor??? and does this guy work at his house, or does he have a shop of some sort!?
ya afaik, the hardest part is bending over backwards working with the steering column. next would be the removal/install of the tranny, but once you remove it you should know what to expect when installing. i got a tranny jack and friend has a crane so im pretty confident.
