Hey guys i have been looking around this forum for a little over a year. And i have decided that i miss my manuals too much so im going to attempt to do this swap.
So far i have:
transmission with flywheel (162$)
Ecm 50$
Under hood fuse box $20
Harness (manaul) $100
Clutch pedal assembly $50
Slave cylinder free
Shifter linkage $75

Now i know i still need clutch pressure plate and some odds and ends but i have some questions for people that have done the swap.

1. With the new ecm am i going to have to go to nissan to pair the ecm to the car?
2. Do i need new cv axles for the manual or are they the same?
3. Will i have to splice anything witg the new engine harness (electrical isnt my strong point )?

The goal is to swap to manual after that go boost. I have swappped out an auto in a civic and eclipse before but never had to mess with the harness or ecu.

If you guys have any other inputs ideas or comments please let me know

Drove from south chicago burbs to rockford to get my trans. There was no way in hell i would pay 600$ for a 6 speed that 140k. Anyways now on to degreasing this bitch and waiting for the other stuff to come in. Ill post pictures later

2012 i believe

for 600 you should be able to get a near perfect tranny

imo the manual tranny will add greatly to your enjoyment
and really helps on tracks and mtn runs [imo]

also seems vital for boost
[which is the most fun]

on paper the auto should work with boost and some have achieved this

but i don't think it has the internal strength to tolerate 300hp and 300ft lb tq

which imo is where the real fun starts

I find it interesting to swap out the CVT for a manual transmission. It sounds like something worth pursuing. So was it a smooth transition considering it was mostly changing out parts?
