H22a4 to h22a swap on an SH

I have a 2001 prelude SH. It has a h22a4 in it. I'm looking to drop in a h22a.

I've heard so many different things on this, its not even funny.

Basically, what would I have to do to get a h22a work in my car? People have told me I need a new trans, ecu and axle shafts, and other people say just drop the engine in and it'll be fine. However I know certain things need to be switched over, I think oil pump cover, dizzy, crank sensor.

Does anyone know a DEFINITE answer to this? What has to be switched over to get it to work?

Please reply only if you have done this swap before, or know someone who did it.

Re: H22a4 to h22a swap on an SH

dude it wont bolt up to the tranny right..I have an H22a4 as well they are made to bolt to the SH tranny. Your better off getting another h22a4 or a type S motor which lays down a bit more power and has ATTS that comes with it and is rated at 220hp at the crank. With an h22a or an h22a4 there isnt really a power difference its the same motor. One fits and the other doesnt. good luck

Re: H22a4 to h22a swap on an SH

The Type S is a H22a. All JDM H22's are H22a's. But yeah any other H22a and you will have to switch transmissions and lose ATTS (pick up an S Spec, Euro-R, etc. and you can have LSD to replace it though).

Re: H22a4 to h22a swap on an SH

Well it doesn't matter much now because I can't do the swap. but I was going to drop in a h22a with a base tranny and p13. It was one of HMO's complete changeover packages.

Re: H22a4 to h22a swap on an SH

I know a guy who did a type s swap..whether or not a type s is just a plain h22a it will bolt up right because it is made to fit with atts..i wouldnt go throuhg the hassle with something that wont fit if u plan on doing it in the future because it becomes more work and more money spent..if u do a p13 u have to have it tuned right as well otherwise thats gonna **** up other ****

there are different types of h22's though such as a1, a4, a7...a type s will fit because its made to fit a regular jdm h22 will not if u try and bolt it to the sh tranny

Re: H22a4 to h22a swap on an SH

Did I not just say h22a with a base model trans? I'm aware of this. Obviously a sh tranny won't bolt up to a h22a. And a h22a is a type of h22.

I have h22a4 and sh trans. Was going to put in h22a with base model trans.

Not going to do it anymore, because the guy who was supposed to help me bailed.

Might as well close the thread.

Re: H22a4 to h22a swap on an SH

if you go with the base tranny you'll need a new tranny mount, different axels and a bracket that takes the place of where the atts unit is if I remember correctly. Haven't done a swap in years lol

Well like I said before, I'm not doing the swap anymore, the timeline has passed. So I have a year to think over what I want to do and save up money. Maybe by that time I'll have enough for a type S swap. Who knows...

Anyway, thread is pointless. Atleast for me.
