5 speed swap questions.

Ok I'm 95% done with my 5 speed swap, everything is done but the wiring. Every write up I find on the swap is using the auto ECU and a modified auto lower harness. I however have a stock 5 speed ECU as well as a stock 5 speed lower harness. I'm trying to make everything plug and play like factory and I THINK if I had a 5 speed fuse box, I should be able to just plug everything in and run it like it came like that from the factory correct? Can anyone shed some light on this?

I also want a working clutch pedal start instead of using a jumper on the auto fuse box. Has anyone ever done this? And I had to unplug this box to install my clutch pedal and now the box doesn't fit under the dash where it once was. Does anyone know what this box is??

be creative and dont make it harder than it seems.. run your clutch safety switch between the 2 wire "jumper" plug on fusebox in the bay and youll have to do nothing else as far as ecu. the box just trim back a little bit of the wrapping on the pigtail and reloacte where you can find space. tuck it above heater vent plumbing for example

But does that box need to be plugged in? I can't even figure out what it is.. And I know all I need is the jumper to make it run but I also need my 5th gear switch and reverse lights functional. I know how to make everything work, but I want to do it like oem, not "cut this, splice that, jump this". I want factory plug and play. The car isn't a daily driver so I don't mind spending extra time to make it perfect.

I for one just didn't care about the clutch pedal switch and the lower 5 speed hardness just plugs up. If I remember right the only thing I even cared about was the speed sensor. In texas is not required to have reverse lights so that was one less thing to mess with. The other sensor are 1 gear and 5 gear or something like that, that really don't do shit lol...

I want my car to function like oem. Just a personal preference.

Yeah everything plugs up, just gotta run a jumper harness to start the car. But I also want to have reverse lights, they actually do help at night for me. Also I just want everything to function like factory like I said before. It's just what I prefer.

Lol all my cars are factory 5 speed and every one of them I bypassed the safety switch. I never leave my car in gear nor does anyone drive my cars. The only swap I preformed didn't have any switches or jumpers. heck in 72 no one even used an ecu. but I can understand not wanting to rig every thing to work then have to diagnose it later. Huge headache

^^ thank you sir. Lol, finally someone understands. If I make it plug and play just like it came from the factory, I keep it clean and stock and easy to diagnose if any problems arise.
