MT swap: Part list

Hello,
As some of you already know that I've completed a MT swap last year and I wanted to share some insight on the parts that are needed.

I warn to whoever chooses to take on this swap that there are a couple parts that are no long made. I work on cars a lot so I wasn’t bother with some of the issues that I encounter but this is NOT an easy task that anyone can just do. All of the parts are pretty much bolts right up but it’s the clutch master cylinder that will give you a lot of issue since there isn’t much room to install and drill holes for. My motor was out and I couldn’t imagine doing this swap if the motor was in.

Transmission (I would recommend the TSX 6MT) $500
I was lucky to find one with new gears and LSD from a friend at a dealership
Clutch
Flywheel

Clutch System: $215
Prefill clutch system (Complete system: clutch cylinder, slave cylinder, hard lines, ect.) 46940-SEA-A02
If you can find this then you’re extremely lucky but I had to buy the parts individually!!!

Slave cylinder 46930-S7C-E02 $44
Slave cylinder bolts 90106-S7A-E00 $1.50 (2)
Clutch fluid tank 46965-S6A-013 $33
Clutch fluid tank holder 46966-SDA-A02 $5
Clutch fluid tube 46971-SDA-A01 $4.50
Clutch fluid bolt 93403-06012-08 $.65
Clutch master cylinder 46920-S7A-A03 $91
Clutch master cylinder bolts 94050-08080 $.20 (2)
CMC lock pin 46911-S70-003 $1.60
Clutch pedal pin 46912-S84-A00 $2
Clutch hard line A 46960-SEA-A01 $14
(This is a part that is no longer available so I had to use the one from the Honda accord even though it is slightly different but it wouldn’t matter because the rest of my lines weren’t OEM hard lines since I used braided steel lines instead) I’ll list as if it to use OEM parts only

Clutch hard line A (accord) 46960-SDA-A04 $9
Clutch hard line B 46970-SDA-A01 $5.5
Clutch pipe bracket A 46995-SDA-A02 $10
Clutch pipe bracket B 46968-SDP-A02 $10
Clutch hose 46961-SDA-A02 $11.50
Brake hose clip 90651-538-000 $3
Bolt washer 93403-06016-08 $.60
Special bolt 90001-P7J-000 $1 (2)

Pedals:
Clutch pedal 46910-SDA-A01 $60
Brake pedal 46600-SEA-G01 $50

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!!!

Console:
Once you remove the auto shifter the MT shift boot will screw right up.
Shift boot 83415-SEC-A01ZB $23
Shift boot screws 93903-22320 $.25 (4)

Shift Lever:
Shift lever 54100-SEC-A02 $78
Shift lever bolts 93405-08035-08 $1 (4)
Shifter bushings 54117-SDA-A01 $1 (4)
Shifter floating collar 54119-SDA-A01 $1.5 (4)

Knob is up to you to choose from.

Shift Cables:
Shift cables 54310-SDA-L02 $100
Cable bolts 95701-06016-08 $.50 (4)
Cable plate 54357-SF1-003 $3
Wire washer 54118-S10-000 $2
Split pins 94201-20350 $1.50 (3)
Cable stay 24601-RAP-010 $29
Cable stay bolts 95701-08060-08 $1 (2)
Cable stay bolt 95701-08070-08 $1

Transmission mounts:
MT front lower mount 50850-SDA-A10 $35
MT front lower mount bolts 90166-SEA-E10 $2.50 (2)
MT F/R lower mount nuts 90371-S87-A00 $1 (4)
MT rear lower mount 50860-SDA-A12 $17
MT rear lower mount bolts 90165-SEA-E11 $1 (2)
MT upper mount 50870-SEA-E01 $38
MT upper stopper plate 50875-SDA-A11 $4
MT upper mount bolt 90166-SEA-E10 $2
MT upper mount bolt 90162-SDA-A00 $.55
MT upper mount bolts 95701-10045-08 $1 (2)
Upper mount bracket bolt 95701-12075-07 $1.50
Upper mount bracket bolt 95701-12060-07 $1.50
Upper mount bracket 50670-SEA-E11 $27
(This is the part that I was told from the dealer that I got the last one in the US so I would recommend to see if you can find a wreck MT TSX for it because the ACCORD’s bracket is different and wouldn’t work)

Half shaft:
Half shaft 44500-SDA-A00 $185
Half shaft bolts 90102-SF1-000 $4 (2)
Half shaft bolt 90165-SE0-000 $2

I got one at salvage yard from a MT accord for $50

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

I didn’t replace the gauges since I can just remove the bulbs from the back and it isn’t worth $475 to save you from seeing the Park and Drive light.

MT gauges 78120-SEC-A11 $475

I hope this will help shine a new light on people who plan to do a MT swap.

If you have any question please feel free to ask :D

Enjoy!

P.S.
This didn't come out as neat as I typed it up on word just now so if you want a neater layout I can email it to whoever wants it

Good to finally have a full complete parts list. Guess I will have to add up the cost of the parts and see what it compares as I am actually looking to buy a parts car tomorrow at auction.

Also here is a question for everyone. Since I am buying a salvage parts car that might actually be rebuildable I am hoping I can then swap the AT into it and use it as my DD for a while with the shitty gas prices. I would obviously not bother fixing it cosmetically really. Anyone think that it would be that hard?

You could just half ass it. Dont worry about everything being perfect and you could get it done in a day. Then slowly build your MT swap.

Halfassed is not in my vocabulary so that won't happen.

I have another car I am just saying there seems like there are a few problems with moving the MT to an AT with needing to make some brackets and what not but I think from reading what those issues are there should not be any problem going from MT to AT.

I would only use it as a DD after that. MT swap would be getting done first as well.

I can understand that. I would think it to be easier, less mechanical parts, you have the brackets for AT, etc.

Well I am back to square one. My internet on my phone I was using for my personal laptop at work cutout 2 cars before mine and as a result I lost the auction. So no 6spd TSX for swap and no eventual DD Auto TSX once repaired. Was perfect to cause it had 6spd and Navi :(

Well found another but it is only 6spd with no Navi and is beyound cheap repair from the extra stock parts I have from my TSX so it is worth significantly less to me but I will probably give it a try.

I hope your search turns out positive. I havent been to a dealership yet with the parts list, Im searching for used parts for now. Your going OEM right?

Well here's a parts update; Received my transmission 2 days ago. In the next month or so, I'll rebuild and bullet-proof it. Also bought the shifter assembly, boot, knob, brake and clutch pedals. Still working on getting all the mechanical parts as well.
