Icon13 How many miles are on your Gen 4

How many miles are on your Gen 4?
What motor?
Auto or manual?
I am looking to do a JDM swap in July.

In order to keep the wife happy, I have to keep the auto on my 96 SI. So I want ot know who has run a stronger motor and how is the auto holding out.
I am gathering real world info about what motors seem to last longer. My H23 spun a bearing at 160k.

Re: How many miles are on your Gen 4

ive got an S with auto tranny with 300,000+. not exact mileage because the odometer broke for a while before i got the car and fixed it. It leaks some oil and having some common issues that preludes seem to have, like the main relay and the vss going out.

Re: How many miles are on your Gen 4

According to the previous owner of my long-gone 95 Si auto, the H23 gave out around 150k. It was wrecked at 190k. My 93 S 5-speed has 172k and still runs great, but I'm looking to buy an F20B for it soon just because.

I've driven both cars he mentions.
The 95 had aJDM H22 with auto and it was fun, fun, fun. I was teetering on another classic mustang someday or a prelude. A 5 minute adventure in that 95 auto lead to my prelude addiction.

Can't speak for how an auto would run his 93 for certain, but with the factory 5 speed set up for cruising it takes off and drives similar to what an auto might feel like. The motor is built. You can see the details at his members rides thread. It pulls hills good, but the H22 in the 95 certainly had more zip.

You can build up that H23, since it needs a rebuild anyway and you'll feel a big dif.

Re: How many miles are on your Gen 4

Looks like we have

4 H23's, 4 F22's and 3 H22's with 200k+

I am having a hard time making up my mind. I am leaning toward putting in a H22. I would love to rebuild my H23, but I would need to do it with someone else. When I see exploded diagrams, my ADD really flares up.

Anybody want to chime in on how much $ they spent on rebuilding their motor? Things like parts prices and machine work.

Thank you for your input. You guys are the best.
