This was taken from an acura dealer post from this threadTag66: Not all the info is correct... No 6 - speed for '02.
Funny... the TL Type S in the Los Angeles Auto Show had the same 5 speed Sport Shift as the CL Type S. I don't doubt that a manual tranny will fit the TL or any J30/J32/J35 Block. Its just in the hands of marketing, not enthusiasts.Originally posted by Accord-R:
Yea...it will have a stick. The reason for this is that the Prelude will be replaced by basically the Accord Coupe, of course it will be lighter than the regular Accord and more sporty, plus it will have the 6-Cylinder J series engine in it. And since it is a sports car it will be offered in manual. By the way Honda does make a manual transmission that fits the car...it's sitting in my garage attached to an NSX! Of course if you don't believe me...the Honda of America Race Team will verify this.

Argh! I'm not arguing with you, nor was I ever. Reread my post. I Don't doubt that a manual will fit a J-series engine. All I'm saying is that Honda Marketing division prolly will stop it from happening, though from an engineering standpoint, its very feasable.Originally posted by Accord-R:
F=MA, didn't we have this discussion before?The NSX tranny will fit the J Block...it just won't fit in the car without mad customization...
