i, personally, will never own an automatic accord, unless its a daily driver or i have no choice. so personally i think its worth it, i love driving a 5spd. but for me it wasnt too expensive, as the tranny and everything was all part of my h22 swap, all i had to do was spend $200 on parts and put them in before i put the motor in.

if you have a stock car and dont particularly care too much about it, it may be worthwhile to sell it and just buy a 5spd cb7, perhaps ull be able to get one in better condition than the one you have... but if you have a lot of time and money into the car already, converting may be worthwhile, if is something youre willing to spend the money on.

The first time I did it, it took awhile. Not because the process was so hard, but because the friend didn't have all the parts we needed, so we had to go find them.

He also bought the complete swap from a yard that pulls everything for you, so we didn't get to verify if everything was there or not.

As long as you have everything you need before hand, and it is all in good working condition, you shouldn't have any major issues.

If the engine is still in the bay, then yes, this can be challenging. It isn't impossible though. I think it took me a few minutes to figure out HOW to get it around everything without bending it, and then another 10 or so to actually do it.

that is what im doing right now and its is sort of a pain. I would get everything you need before the swap. pull it yourself and save every bolt and braket and washer, you will kick yourself for not doing so. ive droped about 1 g for everything on my swap so far. ive had to buy some tools and i bought a aftermarket flywheel/clutch. not to metion alot of $$ for flywheel and pressure plate bolts. I could be driving my car now but I have spent so much time waiting on parts.
