FWIW, I add an extra $100 just to wire the reverse lockout on my Auto-Manual swaps at the shop....

That being said, Alperovich...

I don't see a spot for a relay, diode or the extra pin you would need for the ECU to make this swap truly plug and play for a 6spd reverse lockout....

To be truly called OEM plug and play you should also wire the upper clutch switch that kicks-off the cruise control if the pedal is pressed.

Engineered?!?! Its 3 switches and a solenoid. Hardly rocket science.

Also, I see you used used connectors scavenged from the junkyard and wire to make your harness.. What exactly are your costs

*spot for the relay:


*wire leading to the ecu:

this my test version, the final had a singel wire coming from the socket on the relay to the ecu.

no diode, i guess i don't quite see a need for it in my setup.

not so easy to just walk out of a junk yard with a bucket full of connectors, especially not here in florida, where its warm outside.

i also used over 35ft of new wire per set, so i used as little oe wire as possible from the connectors. some have even been repinned entirely.

i had more to say but its gone now, and i don't remember it all. failsos is on me i guess.

so...



wow.
It's not a matter of one wire. Its labor to remove the ECU, parts (relay diode and socket) and diode and labor to run the wires. I'm not a street mechanic by any means.

Either way I'm not taking your bait

Went to the jubk yard today. Looks like all the manual hondas I checked had the connector I need for the clutch switch. Good news! Updating the for sale thread.
