Jim, Get a GT cluster and Harness add the trip Button and voila.
I am done hacking up the car.

All I really want to do is put a phantom grip in it, get a new ecu and gls gauge cluster, and call the car done until I save for a turbo kit.

curious, how did you work it out that you were able to work on your car at work (which is where im assuming you did it)...did you have a couple days off and you did it then?

Tuesday is my day off, I did 99% of the swap in a day. Then on wednesday I used someone else's lift until after work, bolted the steering rack in, poped the clutch and drove it outside, and then a couple days later the starter came in...drove it in during work hours when no one was looking and put it together :D

Alright, I got the speedometer, and the backup lights working. The wiring is very simple. On the plus side the R on the instrument cluster lights up when you put it in reverse :D On the negative side I still have a check engine light, which I will have until I get a manual transmission ECU.

How much did it cost total?

Parts Car $150 + $135 towed to my house
3 weeks taking my time removing everything manual from the car
New transmission $450
16 hours shop labor
Starter $95


UPDATE !!

I got my manual instrument gauge cluster in the mail today. Bolted right in and works fine, and the milage isn't off that much either ! (bought off ebay) my only gripe is that its all GREEEEENNNN...(i had my other gauges converted to red LOL time to buy some LEDs from www.autolumination.com !)


All that's left is to get the manual ECU and clean up the wires in the engine bay.

i feel sorry for you guys who think swapping transmissions is best, a/t might be "boring" but the m/t's have problems with second gear and with 1st and reverse sometimes, and uhh ha, not to mention the crankshafts are different between the automatic and manual motors, the centers are different sizes around. lol..

:abovelol:

M/T's having problems? really? I've NEVER had a problem with mine, not a single one. And the people which had the 2nd gear grind problem fixed it just by changing thei trans oil.
