Love the thread!
Dan is getting a lot of competition. I did say before that SVOboy's car had the best potential. So does Bunger's.

I just wish I had a manual, i would keep up with you guys.
Thanks for the comment, chap. I'm hoping to give dan a run for his money. Mehbe soon you'll get jealous enough to buy a manual civic,

PS: I will take some timing belt pictures pretty soon, I don't want to replace it because it costs money, but of course I should just because.

Add or comment as needed to

Add or comment as needed to the below...

Swap parts replacement checklist
To replace:
-Timing belt
-Water pump
-Plug wires
-Plugs
-Intake manifold gasket
-Anything I've lost
-Alternator belt

Not to replace:
-Valve cover gaskets (they're in good shape and if they bust later they're just as easy to replace)
-Cap and rotor (1.5k miles old)

I can't think of anything else offhand, so help me out!

The clutch looks good to me.

The clutch looks good to me. But I would change it anyways. Its only $100ish for a new clutch kit and its not worth it to have to drop the trans again.

Yeah, andrew bense (from h-t) told me he thought 5k, plus I'm easy on the clutches. I dunno, I need to get the swap done soon if I wanna do it in the shop, we shall see, I'll talk to my boss tomorrow. I'm hella nervous about it now though.

have you figured out the rpm

have you figured out the rpm difference you'll get by going with the taller tranny? or are you just using the force?

Well, it's hard to say the

Well, it's hard to say the difference since I'm auto now, but I think my gearing is the same as budomove and here, and he recently told me when he went from 4spd to 5spd he'd be dropping 1000 rpms on the highway. I'm planning on being down around 1600 on the highway at 55mph and 1200 or so every other time, as opposed to always 2k and 2.5k on the highway at 55mph.

I don't have my book in front of me, but a repair book should have minum clutch thickness, I would defenetly refer to those specs.

I have been told by one it's

I have been told by one it's got 50k and another it's almost new. I'm getting a new clutch anyway, but if anyone wants to buy this one on the way cheap that's fine.

Also...should I toss my new oil filter on the engine while it's just sitting around chilling or take the old one off when it's in the car and do the change then?
