does anyone know the details/work invloved in swapping from an auto to a 5speed in my 1990 crx dx? ie. do i need a new ecu, can i reuse my driveaxles, how hard it is to get in the clutch cable and pedal, etc... thanks
the petals would prob be about the hardest part of the job.... if i was you i would pull the dash out to bolt them in unless you are really good at standing on your head....
axles should be the same and all the other stuff seems pretty straight forward... . . but like i said those petals bolt on waaaaay uo top
good luck getting all the bolts on them with the dash still in there.
- As I recall, there's one bolt holding the pedal assembly to the car, above and kinda between the two HVAC ducts... The rest are nuts.
- The writeup says something about reusing your A/T rear mount by threading the rear crossmember. You need the M/T rear mount, not the A/T one. It should line up to pre-existing, pre-threaded holes in the crossmember, but it would be wise to clean any dirt or rust out of the threads with an appropriate tap.
- Don't bother with jumpers on the big shift switch connector... Simply unplug and remove the blue box from under the driver's seat (labeled "Interlock Control Unit" or something similar).
