Nice pics there, missing the money shot though!! - of the manual shifter with all the panels fitted.
looking at the pics, have you removed the pnp all togther? im guessing you tapped the pnp connector to tie in the reverse lights.
how did you get round the starting(ie it will only start if the pnp is in P or N)?
Are you still runing the auto ecu?
even though im in the uk with manual R's, i thinking of swapping my auto for a manual, as complete manual t5's (blown engines etc) can be had for a few hundred pounds.
Yeah im still running the auto ECU, however I think I am going to be purchasing Jross's Euro spec RICA ecu.

not sure how he did his (though i did see the trans connector in the bag, water tight apparently)
on mine, i cut the harness that runsover the tranny open and separated out the important stuff, ie cam angle sensor, o2 sensor wires, speed sensor, afm wires, etc.
then i cut off the transmission connector right at the connector to keep the important wires as long as possible. via research on here, i knew i had to run the blue and blue/grey wires to the reverse light, and to get it to start without the pnp, splice the green/red and green together.
when i got in there there were 2 solid green wires, the one i needed was the fatter of the 2.
to eliminate all of the useless wires, i got into the ecu container, disassembled the bottom portion which gave me access to all of the TCU wires that were no longer used. i then used the bunch of cut wires where the tranny/pnp plug was to determine what to pull out, and started clipping wires at the TCU connector. then just got a pair of pliers and pulled them out of the harness one by one. all that was left were the blue, blue/grey, green, green/red wires and it all works perfectly. car started right up, and the reverse lights work (which they never did with the pnp switch i had in there)
one more note. by bypassing the pnp switch starter interrupt and therefore enabling the starter to engage in any gear, you disable the cruise control. there is one wire you need to clip under the fuse panel near the abs unit that will fix this. let me know if you need more details.
Thats exactly what I did, but instead of cutting off the wires it just left them hooked up. This was done just in case (god forbid) that I had to switch the car bad to Auto

so from fcpgroton u ordered: Clutch Slave Cylinder, Clutch Master Cylinder, Clutch Hose and Clutch Release Bearing
is that right
Yes that is right, but I never did get to use the bearing..... couldent get it to fit. I searched on the forum and other people had the same problem.
