possible H22A swap???

ok so im thinking of buying a 89 lude SOHC.. first off the transmission is missing 3rd and 5th gear.. what could the problem be there? synchros??


2nd... i would like to do a motor swap to a H22A1.. what would i need to do to make the swap and would it be worth the money spent?

3rd. .if i did the swap would the original trans be fine or would i need a new trans for the H22??

im thinking of doing this cuz i can get the car for $400 from a friend.. it has 150K on it now all stock... i wanna make it kind of a project car but unsure if worth it? any help or suggestions would be great.. thanks

Re: possible H22A swap???

what exactly does it do in 3rd and 5th.

h22 is close to 200hp stock. I put one in my eg = balls ass fun.
then i turboed it. so far so good.

h22s will bolt up to f trannys but the ratios are a bit off. stick with h tranny they're stonger and geared accordingly

Re: possible H22A swap???

If you are not a mechanic, then you should leave the transmission problem to one. The link is for how to do an h22 swap. Very complicated, and if your car is a 2.0S, will be expensive and improbable. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

That thread is old and not up to date.

Here is a more up to date thread witha person who actually helped out the 3rd gen community with his swap from S to Si H22a swap.

1: http://www.preludepower.com/forums/s...d.php?t=271916

The new H22 mounts I had produced were out of Billet, but I am currently not taking orders for the kit, so for those who still want to do the swap there is another company that copied my kit and sell them in Steel.

Explicit Speed Performance

He makes them in one off's and the price is very cheap.

I will be making the H22 kits again someday but only in group buys, and right now I am still trying to find a machinist that can do the kit for a fair price.

And to the OP please read this link for all the up to date H22 swap information from right ups to parts list.

2: H22 Swap Thread - All known swaps to date: - Honda Prelude Forum : Honda Prelude Forums


Just email at: 1Funryd@comast.net
For more details.

Re: possible H22A swap???

Sean, I understand what you're saying, but if someone says they are not a mechanic, I cannot tell them they can tackle this task. Pictures show the ease, but tools, patience and experience are needed, AND TIME. By the degree of the posts, this was a shot in the dark question. We still don't know what's wrong with the transmission of his "carbed 2.0." we need details.

Well then I answered your question when it comes to the H22 swap, just read the posted links.

As for your tranny question, check your shift linkage, pull the tranny and check your clutch and pressure plate, your shift fork and your throw out bearing.
