What do you mean by riging up the transmission outside of ECU control?
I know how to drive stick, but i am trying to save money on this swap. The car is really old (but cool) and i would like to have it more dependable than it is now as it juts hit 200k and it leaks oil everywhere. Besided the car handles good, and it feels like a go-kart.
I mean giving the lockup solenoid constant power rather than having the ecu determine the lockup.
Yes, you could pass.
However, consider that I do my auto to manual for ~100-150 bucks, my transmission was free, and that I could sell you a clutch and flywheel for a very reasonable price, , you'll save more money in the end.
I have a thread on here, lemme dig it up. It'll be b10 on the obd1 plugs, I wired it to constant power. There's really no difference to it.
I'll give you a quick rundown of what I spent on things:
- Shiftlinkage 20 shipped
- Clutch Cable 15 shipped
- Pedals 20 shipped
- Flywheel Free Off Engine I picked up
- Transmission Free From a Guy on H-T
- Clutch Free From Guys at My Old Shop
- Mounts 40 bucks (didn't all come with the tranny, some did though)
I have a bead blasted (basically just cleaned up and shiny) flywheel I spent 20 on that I was going to use but then got my other one (I actually have two spare right now).
I also have the used but good condition clutch that came with the flywheel I'm using, it's OEM Honda so it's still in good shape, mehbe 20-30 bucks for that. I have a new clutch but it's promised to ufotofu right now if he wants to do his auto to manual.
I don't have anything else I don't think but I have plenty of hooks up with people on h-t selling such things.
So really, comes out to like 95 bucks for me, Dax got his done for around the same price, and he prolly has parts as well.
