New motor?

'93 h23 prelude is knocking. They don't make new h23 motors, do they? Or a motor that would fit everything well in a stock '93 prelude?

If not, I can just go to the junkyards around here and try to find one.

Also, any ideas on how much it'd cost me?

Re: New motor?

Few things...

I'm almost positive they stopped making all replacement h23's and h22's.

You can though, purchase a JDM h22 and it will fit the motor mounts you have. Junkyards don't really ever have honda motors, people eat them up on site. I saw a H23 motor, but it was a bare block almost.

You can also purchase a JDM H23 Vtec, which will be one step above your h23 that came in your lude.

You could also purchase a rebuild kit, and just rebuild the motor yourself. I believe the kits are roughly $800, but I could be wrong on that figure.

Re: New motor?

an H23, H22, and F22 will all fit into your exact motor mounts no problem,and you can find any of them in our engine buyers resource guide.
