    I would be cheaper to buy an accord with an auto.

    You'd need the mounts, the tranny, the tranny computer, the axles, a
    different wiring harness, the ECU, the gear selector, the shift cable, the
    throttle body, the gauge cluster, and then hours and hours of labor (and
    more money for any parts I've overlooked).

    Considering that I see 90-91 accords for less than $2000, I wouldn't waste
    money converting one.

    It makes no sense to get into such a modification on a 14 year old Honda.
    Find a good used auto tranny Accord if that is what you want.

  5. Now that OP asked that question, I'm going to ask:
    how much does it cost to replace an automatic with a manual transmission on
    a 92 Accord?
    I know you guys will tell me that it would be cheaper to buy a 92 Accord
    with manual tranny, but what if i was one of those DIY whackos and money was
    not an issue?
