Anything is possible if you have enough money.

Sell yours and get the manual, will be cheaper.

Sure it's possible, but is it practical? No.

It will be much cheaper and less pain to just sell your auto and buy a stick shift car.

There was a similar thread on this with a lot of discussion:

The short answer is yes it is possible, but buy a manual if you want a manual.

Agree. This is the best way to do it. My boyfriend has an 03 v6 coupe. He would've just sold it to get a manual. But... they are very rare in our area, for one. Second, his car is flat/satin black... I'm sure no dealership will take him up on his trade. So, instead, he had to do the 6spd conversion. However, the easiest thing to do would be to just sell it and find one that comes manual. Believe me... We go to the auto salvage every friday or every other friday to pick up parts here and there that he can put to use to save from having to buy some of these things new.

Probably means controlling the shifts manually, which by the way, is never going to be as fast as the six speed because you still have the good 'ol torque converter holding you back.

If you're dead set on doing the conversion, the best route would be to find a totally trashed 6 speed at a junkyard with all the parts in-tact and take EVERYTHING needed such as the wiring harness, pedal assemblies, ECU, reservoir, intake manifold (6 spd has butterfly valves), strut tie bar... etc.

You say that, but in reality you're out of torque if you're pushing it to redline. Even if you managed to stay in the powerband 100% of the time, your powerband is no match for a v6's powerband, end of story.

To explain this a little better to everyone else, the Accord's ECU commands every shift solenoid electronically, so if you command the ECU to shift, it will shift the gears for you, like the flappy paddles on a Lamborghini.. except that instead of a double clutch engineering masterpiece delivering shifts in the blink of an eye, the Accord's auto has a torque converter sapping power for shifts that are family-sedan quick. If you think you can do a better job, the same effect can be achieved by putting the gear lever in "1" and moving up through the gears one by one.
