it's all computer controlled if anything it'd make your car slower not faster...

well maybe on road courses it could help but then again 4 cylinders ain't nothing much compared to a v8 360 modena....unless you got a turbo s2k...?

i don't have any ideas about where you should take your car to get it modified buti would have to disagree that an F1 style transmission wouldn't make your car any faster. the newest F1 transmission built by BMW shifts in .08 seconds! i would like to see the driver that can match that with a clutch pedal! although some of these cars aren't any faster off of the line due to the computers inability to slip the clutch once rolling in first gear an F1 transmission will always be just a little faster than a conventional transmission.

clutch is also computer controlled, they just need to shifts thats all they do. no foot work.

that's the point. the computer controlled system takes care of everything, but it can't slip the clutch as much in first. so they shift hella quicker, and even rev match.

i don't know that you could find somewhere to convert it, and besides, if you could, it would be about 10k, since the option is at least that much on most of those cars...

Well a PUSH BUTTON ACTUATED CLUTCH might help you simulate F1 shifting. As far as shifting w/o an actual stick, I've got no idea how to pull that one off.

i don't believe that this sequential trany is gonna be as much as you think. it will probably be 7 or 8K but no more. the reason i say this is the fact that sequential tranny's for a skyline run about 10 or 11K and they are made for like 5 times the torque that our hondas make so i would imagine that a tranny for a honda would be much less. if i were you i would try to contact people that are involved in foreign motorsports as this is where the sequential tranny is popular. i don't have a clue if you could actually find one but hey its at least a place to start looking:D
