How many places are you going to post this?

I never had that problem although the last auto to manual I worked on was a 2nd gen Prelude.

everything will be fine......the only difference is that the auto ecu controls the tranny as well.....fuel and timing maps are fine

don't worry about it, i have about 300 miles on my swap. the CEL doesn't bother me. i'm almost 17, a pretty damn good mechanic, my father owns a repair shop and i haven't worried one bit about it. my car actually runs better and gets better fuel mileage. eventually i'll get hondata or something so im not worried about the ecu right now.

It is related to the transmission so it really doesn't matter but I'd get another ecu or get that one converted.
