I'm sorry to ask this but isn't the a chip or capacitor or something whatever you call it where you are just gonna move it? because I have an SS Prelude too and I'm waiting for my friend to make his mind swapping our transmission LOL because he has a manual and he's going to trade his.

Are you talking about modifying the Automatic ECU to work with the manual transmission?
