man, i hope i can get more input than that..

if i dnt have to swap tranny then its obvious ecu needs to be kept so the atts will work.

i just really want to know if its been done or if someone knows for sure...this blows..i should have gotten a base..

Type S would be a straight swap. Other motors (SiR, Euro-R, 4th Gens, etc.) would not. Not optimal but your existing ECU should be able to handle the higher comp, different cams, etc.

jdm motor... is kind of the same as the base. you can't use the sh tranny. so no more atts if you do a jdm motor swap. besides... it would be better to buy a jdm motor and LSD jdm tranny because those are both the best of both worlds... well better then that dumb sh motor and tranny you have. sorry ... yes i have done this swap several times... and thats why i have a negative attitude about the SH.

well, i PREFER to have it all gone...

but it seems i can only afford an engine rite now...so i was wondering if i can just do that, just like i would be able to, if i had gotten the base model...but apparently i cannot...so now im ass out ....


i do think the sh models is great if it were a brand new car, but as a 10 year old car...i dnt want to deal wit it, and whatever issues may come..

i relish in the freedom of easily swapping an engine in there...vs...being stuck because of a tranny and or ecu combo..

Yup the only way you can do it is to do and motor and tranny swap. If you want to keep her obd2 ( easy way ) get a hold of homotorsonline.com they sell obod2 h22 swaps. Now if you were looking to keep the atts the type-s swap is the only way to do that.
