simple question:
would the only difference in your parts list be the tranny itself and the ecu if i wanted to go from base auto to 6speed type s/type r transmission? or is it even possible with the difference in gearing and whatnot.

thanks, very useful write up btw.

would you have to change your WHOLE pedal assembly? or like just change the pedal tips?

and i was wondering how long would it take to swap all the parts if you were to have the parts all in hand you think?

and i have a type s tranny, on my 02 base, would that mean i would have to get the type s wiring harness?

also, would you need new axles? or they're interchangable?

are there a bunch of sensors and such on the manual transmission?

I used to live in Fayetteville...

I'm in Raleigh now, and Phantasm Motorsports up here on Capital Blvd. is the best place in this region.

Or National Speed in Wilmington off of Gordon Rd.

Either shop is very reputable

I would get K-pro first definitely... it's worth every dollar. You would need it especially because your rsx is boosted to fine-tune the turbo and the motor. And to prevent it from blowing up

what engine management is on there right now?

ok, not sure if this was covered.

What would you need to do a type s motor swap, but leave in the auto transmission? Right now, the power from the k20a2 is a bigger deal than a new transmission. Is it even possible?

Thanks

just FYI, make sure when you do the swap you make sure you get a clutch interlock sensor, it can then be bypassed if you'd like. but if not you will run into a problem getting the car to start. did mine and it didn't have that clutch sensor, made it a pain in the ass, but over all i love it... good luck to all
