Wow, that's a lot of ideas, but no real plan. You would do yourself a lot of good if you would do some research before you buy that b20a3 carb engine.

You need to replace your transmission because it's leaking? Why not fix the leak? Why do you need to replace the engine?

How do you plan to use the carb engine? I hope you dont' plan to convert your lude to use the carb engine. It's a whole lot of work and not worth the trouble.

As far as the h22 swap goes, from what I've read, it will only work with the manual transmission. The auto tranny is apparently too big to fit in the 3rd gen engine bay.

If you're replacing the tranny, now would be a good time to convert to a 5 speed.

What are you trying to say here? All 3rd gens that came with the b20a5 are obd0. The emissions are the same on all 88-91 2.0Si ludes (b20a5).

Re: hello need help pls

S --> Si swap. Lotsa pics.

Cheaper and you can save up your loot for a car with better aftermarket support.

I loved tuning out My prelude, but with passing time I couldn't even replicate half the goodies my baby had. Good luck man.

What are your reasons for staying with an automatic?

You let your sister borrow your lude? Damn, that's some brotherly love.

You never did say why you are replacing the engine and tranny, other than to say the tranny is leaking. That's not a viable reason to replace it. It's a lot easier to fix oil leaks than to swap the engine/tranny. Why are you changing them?

Re: hello need help pls

the reason i wanted to change the tranny was i wanted the h22 so i pretty much used that as an excuse to get the vtec 2.2 tranny and as for the enginemy brother in law said the engine was abt to give out to so just wanted to put something in that wont mess up any other parts in my lude

Re: hello need help pls

Well, if you want to stay auto, you should just find a lower mileage b20a5 or try to find a JDM b20a. It's a direct swap, no modifications necessary. You would want to just use the engine and head if you go that route. All of your stuff will bolt right up. And those engines don't have the same frm sleeves that are prone to oil burning that the b21a1 has.

Glad you got help, I didn't understand why you wanted to carb your car, LOL! Good luck with your prelude.

I guess that's one solution. Apparently you really wanted that h22.

Re: hello need help pls

You could always give it to me.:)
Sell it to help pay for your 5th gen. It doesn't sound like you are too attached to it yet, so you probably won't miss it when it's gone. Me, I'll never survive without a 3rd gen to drive.
