Engine swap auto to manual

I found an h22 on craigslist that was originally used with an auto transmission.. What all has to be done for it to be compatible with a manual?

Re: Engine swap auto to manual

So the motors are identical? I heard there was a minor difference relating to the fly wheel or something. but nothing is fine with me

Re: Engine swap auto to manual

even if there was, you'd be in there anyway. replace it with a better flywheel. you do have a manual in your car now, right?

Yo if you want a new flywheel/clutch look in the for sale section. I have a thread now selling 5spd swap parts. Let me know if you need anything

Re: Engine swap auto to manual

Yes. to be clear I have a 99 base with a manual transmission and a blown motor. everything else in the car is fine except for my block(broken rod). I found this motor on craigslist that was originally used in an automatic car. So Ill already have everything to do the switch?

Re: Engine swap auto to manual

The motor from a manual Lude differs from a motor from an AUTO for the fact that a manual motor has a Flux Capacitor to engage SUPER VTEC!!! J/K

So yea....regardless of the tranny being 5spd or auto that swapping the motor is identical and shouldn't be a problem at all!!!

Re: Engine swap auto to manual

Thats quite a drive! Ill think about it tho.

Anyways, so what are some good things to consider when swapping an engine? anything I should replace or clean on the new motor while its out? Looking for things to improve performance or just make the new motor more reliable.

Re: Engine swap auto to manual

From what I recall both motors on a 5th gen prelude are H22A4. They are exactly the same. I did my manual swap from a auto to 5spd and no problems.
