Entirely New

I am entirely new to the Prelude community, and I am starting off with an '89 2.0si 4ws. I've been looking around and noticed that the b16/b20 or the h22(or f22) has been the most popular engine swaps for the 3rd gens. My question being, are those the easiest/cheapest, or just more reliable to do for these cars? I have the stock B20a5, and I'm looking for something with more horsepower than torque (no boost as it is my daily), as well as vtec. As far as finacially, I'm flexible.

Re: Entirely New

Probably the number one reason those are the most popular is because they are the only swaps that anyone has produced engine mounts available for purchase. There have been other swaps as well, but nobody made any mounts for others to buy. The cheapest non-3rd gen swap would probably be an h23 swap. Do you have a particular engine in mind for a swap or are you just asking a general question?

Actually there have been some non Prelude b-series swaps. But the h/f swap is by far the most common. There were two or three providers of motor mounts for that swap at one time. I think we're down to only Sean (1funryd) providing these anymore.

If I'm not mistaken Innovative is making mounts for the h series, the k series I think is going to be too tall.

we had a local guy buy those innovative mounts and they were terrible. the engine was crooked and axles were binding up. ESP mounts are the way to go

I forgot about ESP. They make good stuff from what I've read. They have a group buy going on over on preludepower, but I'm not sure if you can still get in on it. And they are claiming that this is the final last call for these. Not sure if that means they won't selling them anymore, or if it was the last call for that group buy.

Re: Entirely New

years ago a member/vendor by the name of ludaspeed was doing b18/16 head swaps. Use the vtec pistons, head, intake and exhaust on the b20a block. IMO this would be the only way to do a b16/18 swap. If you go this route I can modify the head as required to fit your block. Others who have done a straight b16/18 swap have complained about lack of power compared to the stock engine.
