Is it worth buying?

Hi Im new here, I was looking at a 1994 Prelude. Unfortunately it is automatic. It is in mint condition and he wants 3800 for it. Should I just pass and keep looking for a standard(what I am in the market for)?

3800 seems a little high. More info will help.

I haven't done it myself

but most people are saying it's roughly 600 - 800 for parts

and another 600 for labour

Re: Is it worth buying?

Well like I stated earlier, my cousin has a spare h22 motor with standard trans from his old lude. So I will be doing this whole swap free.

I would like to wait, but I have been searching for a 5spd for way too long.
