Parts list

I know this a dead horse I am beating on but does anyone have the link or pictures or list of what all parts I would need to make a 2dr v6 at coupe into a 6mt?
I have been dying to start this project and would feel better if I had some sort of parts list or pics to go by before I start disassembling my car....

Dude, you are so better off just trading in your car for a 6 speed. Far less headache and instant gratification of an already assembled 6 speediness.

You still have to install it so how does it make the process any simpler? It won't, nor will it make it any cheaper.

Honestly I'm I the process of taking everything off my car including performance parts and buying a 6 speed much much more easier than doing the swap. Saves a ton of headache.

ok this is what i think,you need a used tranny comes with paddle, shifter and ECU. a person who knows how to swap the tranny and reconnect the ECU from auto to manuel. overall it will be around 2.5k~3k, too much? well,if you wanna trade for a stick, you have to spend money/time to take everything out of the car to put in to the other car. and you will lose money to sell your auto and spend more to buy the stick. and lets dont talk about trade in cuz you will lose more. so over all i think its worth it cuz dont forget, you are the one driving the car you take care of your own car, who knows what did the other owner do to his/her car? maybe after you got the car and the tranny break down 1k miles after you drove it. that will be another tranny and the labor to swap it. well that just my opinion. i dont like the used car cuz you have no idea what happened to it and what will happen later...

Also to add to Paul's list, you would want to consider getting the larger rotors/calipers that come with the 6-speed. The 03-05 6-speed cars don't have an intake resonator so you might want to consider getting an after-market intake or the OEM 6-speed one.

As for car trade-ins, things aren't as grim as you might think. At least in my area, one Honda dealership is willing to pay me over private-party sale for my vehicle because their used-car lot is so thin. I was offered more then what I owe on it.

Being in your position I would buy a Honda Certified Pre-Owned car. They come with a 7-yr 100,000 mile warranty, much better warranty then if you were to retrofit your existing vehicle into a 6-speed.

Smile Dewin it!!!

Guys I know alot of you here are trying to give me sound advice and that I should trade this car...but the simple truth of it is I had this car since mile one and I have done several custom mods all throughout the car. I do not want to have to do those to another accord again...I would rather get something new and start all over...but I love this car in every way..the body..the bad ass system I got,the wheels (18 Axxis Seven Mod),and I love how under the radar I am when I speed in it...(doesnt look like a MisChieF Civic[I have one of those in my garage as well!!!])...
so I want to end my modding with this car but I cant do that with an Auto. I am on my 5th auto (not counting the 2 put in by Honda for free)I want a stick and maybe either a big na or low boost setup later...I dont need to beat a ferrari..I just want to putt around town a little faster...ok well a whole lot faster...

do the swap. that is what i would do after seeing peter's swap. also like you said, if you were to trade in your car then why get the same car in manual right? get something different. lol..

anyways i guess i really won't know though the feelings you are going through cause my car is already 6spd.

Only reason I say sell it and get the 6 speed is because if you plan on doing a swap and sell the car won't you have a problem with that...I think so...I don't plan on keeping the accord forever I plan on selling it in 2-3 years @ max. That's why I thnk long term it would be best to just sell the auto and get the stick but hey that's just me and I'm just defending my point I don't know if you plan on selling this car or keeping it forever....

i remember removing one when i bought my intake way back when...its the huge thing that connects to the bottom of the stock intake box in the bumper right?

either way swapping would probably be a better way to go rather than buying another car.

You're on your 5th tranny with a NA engine? I think someone needs to improve their driving skills before they do anything else. Honda's auto trannies blow for sure, but that is just ridiculous.

Axels are fine, I am running my AT axels for the last 2 months since I did my MT swap.

As for these AT tranny's, a couple of things that can be done to help preserve them.

1) Replace the damn, mother f'n filter on the top of the tranny nd replace the f'n fluid every 25K miles. (Yes this one gets under my skin....)
2) Lift off the damn throttle when the tranny shifts gears, these trannys are very vulnarable to clutch pack damge if the engine is pushing hard during the time when the next clutch is engauging, once you feel the gear lock in then stomp back on the gas, but when you feel the tranny release the gear, lift your foot.
3) External coolers will help, but 1 & 2 will do alot for the life of these ATs

When you run upgraded mounts and some external mild mods man...this thing hauls ass...it will do a sick smoke show (TCS off). The J32 felt the best so far. My original J30 with the crank modded slightly and blue raybestos clutches probably ran just as well. I do replace my filter and at fluid every 10K. However I do not lift off the throttle during gear switching and I am positive the way the clutch packs are setup that any kind of hard shifting with rpm or torque causes the clutch pack to slip and or cause premature failure. Everybody here where I live doesn't mess with accords so I never had the proper info to get the swap project started.
In a nutshell the AT shifts great when cold (engine must be warm for VTEC)
When hot the AT shifts slow or delayed or sounds like it is double clutching when hitting WOT and then performing a gear switch.
As far as driving skills I drive about 900 to 1200 miles for work weekly. I do all that driving in a SLOW ASS 2009 Altima 2.5SL.
So when I get in my accord and my civic I put the pedal to the medal and I have learned that me and AT trannies for these Hondas don't MIX WELL.....my sister just bought a 2010 g37x hardtop convertible. I got in that car and raped it...it was fast and it was loud for stock exhaust but it felt heavy and didn't steer like my Honda and was missing the BOOM my Honda(no space for it either) has and for me just felt too damn long and heavy...
so my next question ....
What's the best flywheel and clutch combo I should purchase?

Quick question: If you use a 2004 TL 6spd transmission with lsd, would you use an accord 6Spd ecu?

Man if you have the money to do it, then do it and it is always good when you're proud of something that you spent your time building and you know all the problems that you've had in the past with this car..

Go For It

can this be done with the 06-07 models?

I'm interested in doing a TSX 6mt swap and keeping the k24a8 on until it's no longer any good.

The only thing is, I read I would have to run Kpro and that the TSX Ecu will not work. So it doesn't seem possible...Can anyone chime in?
