You wanna keep your automatic transmission and just change out the interior parts to make it look like a manual...right?

If that's the case...I think the best way to do it is to swap the shifter assembly. If you do a search for that, you'll find a thread that I started about swapping the shifter from a TL/CL (and Kiet did it with a Prelude shifter). These cars had the tiptronic transmission so the shift knobs have no button. Add a shift boot to it and viola...instant "manual".

^^ get/use the 6th gen 5MT shift boot if you can. There are already screw posts on the underside of the shifter bezel for the boot bracket. 7th gen boot is a little too small since the opening in their bezel is smaller than the 6th gen opening. I don't know about the Prelude/Integra/S2K/Civic ones.

Can I swap the auto gear shift off a 3.2 TL/CL to my accord? I'm looking to do an engine tranny swap.
