View Full Version : 03 type-s manual into an eg
05-30-2009, 12:20 AM
first time searching for the j swap and new to the internet, im about to buy an 03 cl type-s manual. ive heard that i cannot used this tranny becasue hasport is not making a mounting kit for this. if it true or not can someone please let me know. thank.

Yes you can as long as it is a Manual 6 spd, not an Automatic. I am using the Hasport set on my build. The CL-s tranny will have to be drill and tapped in one location to bolt up but other than that they are (basically) all the same.

I second that too. I already have an 03' CL type S motor and tranny in my teg and as long as you have the Hasport adaptable mounts, you're halfway set. You'll receive an easy illustrated manual on what to do and where to drill and tap along with the EG/DC mounts. It can also be done in a Del Sol.

There is the trans bracket I made for Acidbath's swap we are doing now, just added it to add a little strength to the trans bracket.

hi i would like to know if i will be able to fit example the transmission of accord 5 speed or 6 speed on a acura cl j30a1 engine which was only made with an automatic transmission. you can email me: firstname.lastname@example.org

There are only a few transmissions that will "bolt up". 03 and newer Accord 6spd, Acura Cl and Tl type-S 6spd.

great thanks man. So it should be the same thing for an accord 2003 J30A4 engine.
I will b able to use these transmissions.
and what about the ecu? is it related in a kind of way to transmission or not .do i used the accord ecu?

Try to find 6spd ECU. but Auto will work.
06-15-2009, 11:43 PM
ok 8). But the thing i dont understand. When i search for the ecu. to what does it need to correspond :
to the engine or the transmission. do i need to get an accord ecu or what i dont get it. could someone explain to
me please im pretty new to it..
and does the ecu has to be depending on automatic or manual..???

^^^ ??? Wtf are you trying to ask?
06-16-2009, 01:11 AM
03 Acura CL type S 6spd Manual transmission
04 Acura TL type S 6spd Manual Transmission
03 and newer Accord 6spd Manual Transmission
and so on
The Acura type S came in Auto and Manual, so Maual is prefered
When looking for a ECU you should specify so you get what you want.
Make sense yet??

Ok, So i am in the same deli ma here, i really am confused here also, I have the J32a1, and it was out of an auto, i have the auto ecu, and engine harness... I have read many things on here about when putting on a 6speed tranny do i need to replace all the shit for the cams, like triggering sensor, and so on, or can i run this ecu without affects of the performance? i can get everything i need off of the type s 6 speed that includes the ecu, harness and whatever else is needed but the less work the better....

The auto Ecu/engine/harness will work with the manual trans mission. only if your trying to use a Manual ecu/harness on your auto engine will things need to be changed.
Simple: If you have Auto engine then use auto ECU and harness
If you have Manual engine then use manual CU and Harness
The auto and Manual engines use different sensors to do the same job. If you mix and match then you will have spend more money.
