    1.9k include wiring? coz idsi and vtec wiring are different.

    L13A and L15A should share the same gearbox....but best you confirm with SA or reputable mechanics.

    better get complete halfcut, idsi engine wiring not same as vtec... most of the engine wiring connected to the auto gearbox ecu, either you get complete L15Auto halfcut or get L15 manual hafcut (bit hard to get)....
    Conversion from auto(idsi) to auto(vtec) or auto(idsi) to manual(vtec) both need halfcut, its is to avoid any hassle due to some part like manual gear lever, clutch pedal, or due to engine wiring, dashboard meter and other part compatibility...
