    just picked up a bone stock 93lx with roughly 60k miles. it has an AOD trans, but i was really looking for a 5spd. (couldn't pass it up....this car is straight and sweet!) does anybody make a swap kit to convert it to a 5spd? or do you know of a parts list of whats needed to do the swap? thanks for your info!

    MPS autosalvage has kits, kinda pricey but it says it includes a clutch and a computer. They can probably sell for less if you want less parts, it also says it has the leather boot and shifter. I just pieced my car from cars that I had junked out and local junk yards.

    i would keep the auto computer they make more tq to make up for the auto inless your going to get a aftermarket tune. other then that its really not that hard just pull everything you need from a junk yard or find it on cl i did it in my buddys car the hard part is putting the new peddle in

    im doing the same to my 90 hatch
    i know putting in the pedal assembly is the hardest part but could i get some tips on how to attack it. do i take off the entire dash ? just the cluster? or do i even need to take it off ?

    How hard is this swap as far as difficulty goes? I have a garage, so I wouldn't be doing this in the driveway. I'm fairly decent on mechanical skills but have never done any kind of tranny or clutch work. I've installed many suspension lifts on trucks and try to do all regular maintenance on my own. A buddy's son wants me to help him do this on his 2.3l mustang fox that the auto just crapped out on and I'm a little leery.
