Default 2005 ACURA RL MANUAL SWAP

I am buying a 05 RL, O yes it is a 290 stock hp SH AWD (super handling all wheel dirve) Honda buddy! But it is a poo cee automatic 5 spd with gay *** paddle shifters I intend to never use! What I was wondering is what manual swap is possible in this car? The newest TL gearbox? I have a vision of a single turbo SH AWD 6spd manual RL!!!!! This would be the EVO KILLA!!!! Muahahahahahahah!!!!!

Ummmmm, ur stuck with the auto slush box, bro. Nothing out there that'll let you swap from an auto to a manual.

I thought that was the point of this website? I will figure it out with King motorsports and make a journal within a couple of years. Nothing is impossible. Maybe a NSX manual swap? hmmmmm

The 2005 Legend is also an automatic. Even Ichishima's Legend is an automatic.

Before you go too far down this road, I think that maybe you should live with the car a little bit in its current form.

I think you'll find that you're not going to gain all that much more performance with a six speed.

You're also going to risk the workings of the SH-AWD, which is designed for that particular drive train. You might even have to wait for the 2010 model year TL six speed SH-AWD before there's even a six speed that will handle the combination of power and all wheel drive.

get a tl
RL is a tank that weighs 4000 lbs.
and datalinked between ecu and tcu to properly control and time the awd system.

Subaru and evo have a different awd system.
