Re: switching to 5 speed

are you going from a auto to a manual?

You can get the T-56 6spd kit for 2500$, but you still need the cobra flywheel and a clutch kit, plus if youre going from a auto you still need pedals, clutch cylinders, etc.

Prolly cheaper to find a 5spd for cheap and go that route.

huh? He said nothing about a 6 speed... read the thread.


Theres a shop here in lawrence that does complete turn key swaps for 1200 including the rebuilt trans.. so depending on what year and all that, its not too bad.

nah dont have to do all that. then you run into my problem, where the first doesnt sell, and while it doesnt strap you financially, it doesnt leave you with enough to mod either car, and if you cant mod, there is no point in living and you might as well sell both and drive a civic.
