"It's possible, but the aggravation of rounding up all the parts, and after about $2000 is spent, the automatic starts looking good. Maybe you can find somebody that wants to swap."

That isn't anywhere near correct. Unless you are not a mechanic at all. If you aren't going to do the work yourself, you would be better off selling your automatic car and buying a manual. But if you know how to turn a wrench and can put things in the same place you got them from, but on a different car, you can do this conversion yourself.

It doesn't cost anywhere near $2000, if you do the work yourself, you can do it for under $500. What you need to do is go to a pull it yourself junk yard, find a 92-2000 civic, 94-2001 Integra or 93-97 del Sol. Remove the pedal assembly, the clutch master cylander (on the firewall next to the brake booster), the line that goes from the clutch master to the slave cylander (on the transmission), the slave cyl., transmission and the transmission mounts. You will also need shift linkage for a manual transmission.

If you have an Integra, any 94-00 Integra linkage will work. If you have a SOHC Civic any 92-00 Civic linkage will work (except 99-00 SI) If you have a del Sol, you need del Sol linkage. SOHC and DOHC linkage is not interchangable.

It is easier to do this conversion with the engine and transmission removed from your car. Put the parts onto your car in the same place you got them off the car at the junk yard.

This works on all of the cars listed above, the parts will be interchangable except for the shift linkage.

Yes, by removing the manual transmission and installing an automatic. Unless you have a donor car this would be extremely expensive. My advice is that if you want an A/T sell the car you have and then buy one with an automatic.
