if you want to boost, type s is a pointless engine since it comes with 11:1 CR. plus it's like $3000 just for the engine. just go with the new transmission and keep saving for the boost

just me, but i kinda have to agree with pcggattnc on this one in a way. just do the auto to 5 speed swap, but swap in a h23 tranny with a quaife lsd in it.

reason the h23 tranny, it has longer gears then the h22 tranny does.

Re: need some advice on..swap tranny..or swap engine...

i agree with these guys>>> why do a type s if your gonna go boost?
couple things you can do... pick up a complete jdm swap motor and tranny
take you auto tranny and throw it out lmao sorry i hate prelude auto transmissions
take your h22a4 either sell it ... or build it for boost... sleeves, low comp pistons,rods, balance shaft removal kit... etc.

or just get a h23 tranny off the street... 300- 400 get a obx lsd 450- have it installed 250- (now i know everyone says they are garbage but i have had one for 5 YEARS... and i beat the snot outta my car) it all comes down to install w/ that lsd also so find a shop that is familiar w/ the adjusts having to be made. quaife is awesome ..with out a doubt but do you feel like dropping 1200- on just an lsd???

or just by a h22a tranny w/ lsd.
just my 2cents
