Yeah, I'm thinking to breathe on a V6 Accord and
to swap the slushbox out for a 6-Speed manual, one would probably need to pony up for somewhere between six and eight thousand; much cheaper to just sell the Accord and buy something which is already fast (preferrably from the factory).
FWIW, I've seen nice condition 540i (automatic, the 6-Speed manuals almost always cost more) models of the 2000 vintage for under ten grand; a car I'd much rather have than a 2000 Accord V6 with an aftermarket turbo treatment.
