Re: probably a stupid stupid question

what engine is in it??, also after reading alot on this site, i think unless you have a F20 motor, it might work? but i know for a fact that the H22, F22, H23, transfestites are all interchangable, H22 tranny has shorter gears, so you can stay in VSMACK, the f22 has longer gears which is a better eco driving tranny, and really good for boost, and the H23 is in between, not to familiar with the h23 tranny, but you mix and match with all three of these trannys as long as you have one of the main prelude engines.

Are you tryin to reverse engineer your prelude or something? :blowjob:
Heres a lil info about that engine for ya.



A20A3 & A20A4

The A20A3 and A20A4 were the fuel injected versions of the A20A engines. They were run by Honda's PGM-FI system on a partial OBD-0 computer. Again, there is no real difference between the A20A3 and the A20A4 besides the A20A4 having a slightly higher power output because of not having emissions components (hp and tq numbers for A20A3 only). The A20A3 was offered in the 1984-1987 Honda Prelude 2.0Si, the 1989 Honda Accord SE-i, and the 1986-1989 Honda Accord LX-i.

I feel your pain. I have the craptastic f22 also. Go for an H22. Popular swap, and not crazy expensive.

And when you swap motors, you can always put a newer motor in an older car, most often you can never put a older motor in a newer car.

Let me tell u somethin... If I can fit an H22 in my 86 prelude, u can fit an A20A3 in ur 92 haha. Anything is possible as long as ur willing to put the effort in to it. But I agree with smok3y, the h22 is a nice engine and its not likely to cause u many problems.

Yea, Neck has 250hp/275tq on his totally stock boosted f22, but I wouldnt recommend anything more than 8psi. Those were his numbers at 10 psi.

If you want somethin that wont blow up, your going to have to build it. Swap h22 and you could have some good power with basic bolt ons and a tune. If you decide to build for boost later, then do it. But for now you'll notice a huge gain with an h22 over your f22.
