The more you talk about this car the more I think you should get a different one

Not sure what it'd cost you but it'd be around the price of the transmission, shifter, clutch and all the other manual parts you'd need for it, also i think you'd have to put a hole in the floor for the shifter.

here's an idea, go out.. get an EH-2 civic, 5spd man.. learn how to do your 'skills' in that civic, much better then learning how to drive in a converted man... they drive stupidly and just plain old feel weird.

my dad had an LH Torana that was auto for years, then decided to change it to a 4spd man and it was retarded, i hated driving that thing! HORRIBLE!!....

trust me, if you're intending on doin' thing's like that, then you're better off lookin' for an EG-6 and puttin' all the part's from that EG-4 onto it to make it basically exactly the same as the EG-4 except as a manual..

i learnt to drive a manual in a Datsun 120Y... there ya go!.. that's a nice learner for ya! HHHAHA!!
