Re: engine swap help!!

Well if you just want a little more than stock power you best bet would be intake, header and exhast. get some nice cams as well. You can also port your TB and Intake manafold.

If your swapping out the engine to replace it with a fresher one your can use just about any engine/trans combo that came in the prelude such as H22engineh23 trans, F22engine, H22 trans. Your going to hear it alot herse so ill be the first to tell you all engines and trans are interchangable with out mods except the F20c (S2K) im not going to sit here and tell you it wout be easy swapping to a manual because it depends on your personal skills so that a pretty broad question.

And another thing your going to hear it search, research, read, search then research it agine and any other combination of those words. but good luck with your snizz and i hope i helped a lil.

Re: engine swap help!!

H motors online is very popular. Another place is tiger japanese, but they are hit or miss it seems.

Re: engine swap help!!

to make it easy any F series engine will fit except the F20c or any H series considering there's only 2. The 5 speed swap should be fairly easy. Now if you want to know what are the best engine/tranny combos are that's another story. I wasn't tryin to be an ass in my earlier post it just would be nice if ppl did a lil searching before they asked a question. Your not the first person that has thought of doing this. And then if you were confused or didn't understand something ask. All the mounts are the same between the 4th and 5th gen so there's no confusion on the different h22s.

Re: engine swap help!!

Hmotorsonline is a good site. I order my jdm h22 from them last friday and it should be here early this week. They were very easy to deal with and very competitive pricing as well.

Hmotorsonline

There should be no other options, got my jdm h22a from them, it was EXTREMELY clean, and it was shipped very safely. Never once have I had a problem with the motor.
