Re: H23 Auto to H22 5-speed Swap

To do a H22 5 speed swap into your H23 should almost be a breeze... The h22 will drop right in place of the h23... I beleive you would need to get a diff trany mount but that be it... but you could also just drop out the h23 and put an h22 in, get an p13 ecu, run the vtec wires and such... disable the resistor box for the h23 injectors and auto h22...

I just did this to my 92 si it's really easy if you have a parts car. And yea the tranny mount is different but go to explicitspeedperformance.net they sell a conversion mount for it. Good luck man

Re: H23 Auto to H22 5-speed Swap

I was in the same boat with an automatic H23 and wanting a manual H22. Take my advice, you're better off selling your car and buying a BB1.

Welcome to PZ man!
