Re: parts for tranny swap

I would gather upp all the parts myself, before bring to a shop, cuz sometimes you dont know if your getting top notch or bottom shelf from them..who knows you might realize this is a lot to spend on a swap and go out and just buy Type SH 5 speed and save the hassel and stress

Re: parts for tranny swap

i'm in the middle of this swap for my 4th gen...let me tell you...even doing the work by myself, it has become an insane amount of money. Right now, i'm looking at near $1500 in parts alone. Granted, i'm buying new on a a few parts (clutch, axle, master/slave cylinder)

Just to add in to the parts list here, some of this will help you in your search, as well as help cut some costs down. If you cant find any preludes in junkyards nearby, start hunting down the accords. You can use ALMOST everything out of them. The only things you cant use are the pedal assemblies (you might be able to use the clutch pedal...i honestly have no idea, it was more work than it was worth to try and take it out in the winter) you CAN however steal the brake pedal arm off it, and it will fit perfectly in the prelude. just take the automatic brake arm off and put the accord manual brake arm in, voila!

Also, from what i understand the clutch line piping is routed different, so you wont be able to use that, however, if you can get ahold of a stainless steel line producer you can order an 8 foot line at -3an with a 10 mm screw fitting on one end, and a 12 mm screw fitting on the other, both with 1.0mm thread pitch. This runs directly from your master to slave cylinder, eliminating the piping and clutch damper.

Do yourself (and your wallet) a favor, if you're serious about the swap, do it yourself. If you're not so mechanically inclined, have a gear head buddy help you out, get a service manual, drop some money on a good set of tools and when you get all your parts together, set aside a week that you can borrow someone elses car or have people give you rides so you can take your TIME and do it right. Its really pretty simple, just time (and money) consuming

Oh and dont skimp on certain parts...get a new clutch (and flywheel if the stock one looks pretty tore up) and clutch master/slave cylinders....you can find the half-shaft and cv axle, as well as the master/slave cylinder and a OEM exedy clutch on e-bay for pretty damn cheap, so dont skimp. You'll thank yourself later.

Should be all done within a week....i'm gonna do a write up once its done

Good luck on the swap, I've said I'll do it like a million times already and haven't done anything. Keep us posted on your swap (pics).
