Half shaft:

Half shaft 44500-SDA-A00 $185

Half shaft bolts 90102-SF1-000 $4 (2)

Half shaft bolt 90165-SE0-000 $2

AT and MT axles are the same

AT and MT radiator are different in a sense that the AT radiator has more lines coming out from it that goes through the AT transmission so I pretty much just plug all the on that goes to the AT so I wouldn't have to buy a new one.

MT radiator 19010-RBB-E01 $240

MT gauges 78120-SEC-A11 $475

MugenCL9 NOTES:

I used an AT harness with the AT ECU so the clutch pedal sensor wasn’t required so pretty much I was required to press on the clutch pedal to start the car.

I could never imagine trying to replace AT harness with the MT harness since that means removing the WHOLE DASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The pedal and the clutch cylinder is the most difficult part in the sway!!!! The clutch pedal assembly is NOT a direct bolt on and a fabricated bracket is required to bolt on the pedal. The big issue you will encounter is installing the CM cylinder.

Like most Hondas in the past the MT and AT fire wall were the same so it made it extremely simple to do a MT swap but for the TSX it isn’t!!!

I'll keep an eye out for this thread. :thumbsup:
Props for doing it. Dont listen to others, everyone keeps saying that "its not worth it", "should just trade" etc etc. But once one person does it, every follows like a flock of sheep lol...same thing with staggered fitments and the hellaflush look. Now almost every thread you see is hellaflush! :p (props to chefpeter for that one)

My only concern is im not sure how much the labour costs would be.

I was going to have mine converted as well, but the missus has to drive, so i might wait a few years when we decide to buy another car. I'll be going NA on my setup, then a manual conversion in 2-3 years if im still up for it, which i probably would be. My cars my baby as well, it would be too sad to part with her! :(

Thanks for the encouragement.

Heres the catch, I'm doing the labor myself:eek:hsnap: I've seen transmissions going for as low as $600, so if I were to stick to a basic swap, I could pull it off for under $1500. With the route I hope to go, I'm looking at roughly $5000. But thats LSD, lightweight flywheel, better clutch, short shifter and all the little mods, maybe even kpro. MT transmission are also easy to rebuild, so I can handle a highmileage one and just clean it up internally.

I hope to have found all the needed hardware by mid summer and the swap done before fall.



And thanks Mayuga!

Im doing the same thing to my car, except mine is a 2007 and im doing a 2006 ecu swap (which I already have) at the same time im doing the trans swap. I can't find a MT anywhere to save my life!! Especially not for $600. There is a little bracket that needs to be fabricated for the clutch pedal. I have that also and I'll see if I can snap some pics for you.

Well shit man bad news for me...I was rear ended today and my car is definitely totalled (rear frame is pushed into the trunk). So I have a decent amount of my 6 speed swap stuff for sale if you need it. I have the following:
Brand new clutch and brake pedal assembly from Acura in the box
shifter assembly, knob, boot (no cables)
2006 manual ecu with the keys, immobilizer, ignition
I also have that clutch spacer thing

Let me know if you are interested in anything and we will talk pricing

Back in the day, I did this to my integra. it was a pain in the ass but well worth it.
When I did mine, I thought I had everything I needed, but here a few things i suggest you look into before tearing you car down. the worst thing was waiting for parts in the middle of the swap.
1. manual flywheel
2. clutch
3. possibly a new mount for the tranny, if the AT is not a direct bolt on.

Then i would go to "acura oem parts" and compare the schematics for an auto and a manual, and buy all the necessary misc. bolts and nuts (this step help me a lot).

but the most important thing was the wiring.... I had to bypass the clutch interlock etc, etc.....

good luck!

ARGH! I hate waiting for paychecks...

Anyways, just recieved pictures of a transmission from willyboyk24, hopefully we will be setting up a deal this thursday.
Hyrbid93SIvic has offered me some other parts as well. As soon as they are paid for and shipped, I'll update my list.

Talked to Marcus at Heeltoe, he has a complete list that I have asked him to share with me. I'm sure he wont mind me updating my to-buy list accordingly.

Another minor update: Apparently I f*cked up my bi-weekly budget (still trying to find the anomaly that caused it, might just be 1D10T error). So its post-poning me getting a transmission another 2 weeks.

Bought a shift knob today, found it for less than half price shipped. Bound to be a very unique choice.

pics of the knob!
Ha, all pics will be posted when the swap happens. And I'm being a bit greedy and keeping the knob a secret for the time being. Its nothing rare or special or JDM, just something unique in our cars.
