Re: What is this >? H22A3 ? good or bad ? came from 95 si.

that was my second motor, lasted me 3,000 miles. piece of advice: don't trust the seller of the engine when he says its a new timing belt


there isn't ALOTTA info about the a3, but i'm almost positive it never came in the prelude. i think it was an EDM motor that came in an accord i believe.
i couldn't find any difference between the a1 and a3, other than the valve cover.

that is a pretty stupid thing to lie about... doesn't take much to change when the engine is outside of the car

:(

h22a3 should be a fine engine as long as this specific specimen is nice.
http://www.lugo.pt/tabela_magnecor.htm all that tells us is it is EDM lude 92-96

specs should be the similar to other h22s...

Re: What is this >? H22A3 ? good or bad ? came from 95 si.

There are 2 other differences between the A1 and A3 that I found from personal experience: the oil cooler on the back side of the engine is different and NOT interchangable, and there's no knock sensor (the last one i read somewhere but cannot confirm this since I don't have the block). They were sold to Rover, a british automaker, and were used in several of their cars as well. Power numbers, compression, head design are all pretty much the same between the two. Hope that helps.

I had to replace the oil cooler gasket on my old h23... honda wanted so much I had my mechanic make one...

woa nvm, i thought the thread title said h23a3, not h22.

i was about to prove h23bb2 wrong w/ pics, then i read it again.







i retract my previous statement: this was not my 2nd engine!

Re: What is this >? H22A3 ? good or bad ? came from 95 si.

I loved my h23 for just cruising around... low end torque was great...

h22... about the same on the bottom of the powerband (prevtec)... fvckin' fast from there on out... hold on tight!

you need to be more specific with statements like that. H23a had 197hp, not 160. it also had vtec.

I was just saying you have to be a real prick to lie to someone about it as the seller... it probably would not have changed your mind about buying the engine, right? Not saying you should have changed it... if he told me it was new, I know I wouldn't have :(

you should kick his ass

Re: What is this >? H22A3 ? good or bad ? came from 95 si.

the h22a3 came from the JDM honda ascot innova and its a non-vtec engine. i have a h22a3 head on my f22b2 block. other than that the h22a3 is a sealed deck and has odd washers imbedded in the oil passeges that mate block to the head. I joined this forum just to add that little bit of info, I do not own a prelude but more than half of my accord is prelude based. happy motering!
