Re: Another swapping post...

since you have a 96, you will probably be better off getting an h22a4 because that motor, and your car, are both OBD2, unless you have the h22a1 already

Re: Another swapping post...

i didnt buy it yet i just wanted to see how feasible it is i know it has been done i just want the better power and head upgrades etc availible on the h22 and also easier to find parts mine is having issues, i listed them in my other post i dont know whats going on the spring tension tested good on the valve springs i checked the valves with a roller and there is no carbon deposits but my valves are sticking bad. i just got the valve guides checked and there is no problem there either in theory so i think i may just want to allieviate my headaches by doing a whole motor swap

h22a1 > h22a4

Problem being OBDII. That means only an h22a1 from a 96 will be compatible, and that seriously narrows your options. The h22a4 would be much easier.

Re: Another swapping post...

you will have to wire in vtec, a vtec ecu and that should be it besides swapping over all the other parts. If your valve are sticking bad i would recomend using some kerosene. Put some in with the oil run the car around a little bit till the valves feel better then do a fresh oil change. If that doesn't work get a new head. Remember putting a new head is alot cheaper than buying a h22. i have 2 h23 heads sitting in my garage as im sure many other people on here do. Then just put a new head gasket on and swap heads.

Re: Another swapping post...

I'm also concerned with the motors mileage and rebuilding would require resleeving n the sleeves aren't cheap really is rather just find a Lo miles swap

Re: Another swapping post...

rebuilding wont require re sleeving if you stay with OEM parts. i think theres a company that makes aftermarket pistons that you wont need to resleeve but i dont remember which one. type-s pistons are your best bet if your going to rebuild without wanting to resleeve
