Icon2 5spd swap

Hey guys. i have a 98 prelude. Its auto rite now but im about 2 start the 5spd swap.(I got delayed by a broken passenger window) I have all the parts i need except for maybe one thing. One of my friends told me that i would need a center console from a manual prelude. is this true? Or will the one i have work? Need answers fast please because i know where one is selling and it will be the last part i need if i need it.

Thanks for everything guys

Re: 5spd swap

you will be fine, a auto center console will work with a manual one. they all came off the same assembly line.

Re: 5spd swap

the only thing you will need is to order a shift boot from honda or get one from a junkyard with the plastic plate on the bottom of the boot. this is what bolts to your center console. the auto console already has the places for the screws.

Re: 5spd swap

you dont have to buy a new center console for a 5spd swap on most, if not all, hondas, at least older ones
