a lot of people do it, it's actually fairly common. you will have to seach around for a good shop in your area that can do it.

I'm not sure on the parts required for the swap on a 05' civic, but i'm sure it's pretty similar to the list i have for the 92-95 civic. I'd imagine there a few more parts required for your swap.

Check out Kevoweb's auto-to-manual swap thread. He's got a 92-95 chassis Civic, so it won't be exactly the same, but it should give you some idea of what's involved.

Also, where are you at in Illinois? I used to live there.

Edit: You beat me to it Kevin, lol...

I grew up in Carol Stream. I didn't think anyone had ever heard of it.
