-so i had to use the manual starter. no biggie. but the auto starter does not fit in the manual tranny as stated earlier.

-also i just took out all my ABS stuff and plugged in all my manual brakes stuff. its pretty choppy looking since my brake lines are twisted around each other.

-the reverse lights should be easy enough to figure out. just cut the stock clip and put my own clips in.

-the shifter stuff i may have to see to understand. doesnt sound too crazy though.

-i am still a little cloudy about what this clutch pedal clip does. is it just a loop that gets shorted or what. if i can understand what its doing i can understand how to get around it.

never said an automatic one would. sorry for the confusion if you picked that up some where.

If you had a brake line bender/extruded you could have shortened and straightened them to look fine. they're fairly cheap at any auto parts store.

Purdy much, wiring changes on every vehicle, and I didn't look up the information on every year so that's a home work project for you.

In the transmission tunnel, right behind the opening for your shifter, you have to install bushings for the shifter to mount into. on an automatic car those holes are usually plugged with plastic to prevent rust. pop them out and install the rear bushing. from there the install should go as if you're just installing a manual transmission in a manual car (mechanically)

Clutch pedal switch is an interrupter that stops the car from starting without the clutch being fully depressed. You can run a line from the ignition column to the clutch and then a second from the clutch to the starter and have your car function like any normal manual car, but if you run it straight from the ignition to the starter your car will start WITHOUT having to press the clutch in.

its not called neutral safety for manual its neutral position. And what I'm told it does is tell the ECU you're in neutral this will keep the engine revs up longer wile off the throttle so you can make a clean shift.

This one technically is optional.

so is the line that you are running a ground that is open and when your depress the clutch it connects the negative side of the starter so you can start the car. or is it a 12v line.


also put the tranny in today and the xmember for the 1.8 tranny is waaay off compared to the xmember of the auto 2.2 tranny.

im going to fab one up unless there is an easier fix.
