Re: Engine swap please help!!!

the f engine came in the very very very base model prelude. for the swap, youd need the engine, ecu, probably a wiring harness. and whatever else is needed for an engine swap. take a look at 4th gen/other 5th gen swaps because they will be pretty much the same thing. mainly 4th gen though

I don't know if what is the differences between the two because I am using a H22 engine. I prefer using a H22 USDM engine. :)

Most helpful thing I've read all day.

Anyway, I would swap it with a base engine (h22a1), mostly because its gonna be your easiest bet. You won't want to swap in a type SH motor/trans after you find out what is involved, plus it will cause more complication in the long run. Not to mention more money.

Sell the car and buy a USDM one.
It'll be a lot easier on you

the type sh engine from the united states and the base model are the same engine. so its not more powerful. if you want more powerful, look for the h22a redtop engine found in the sir-s

Re: Engine swap please help!!!

well, the engine should already come with an ECU and trans. then youll need whatever else. i really havent researched any engine swaps. look in the 4th gen section. f22s came in the usdm 4th gen preludes. it pretty much much the exact same swap

The wiring harness plugs right in. You just have to run extra wires for the vtec and knock sensor.3 wires vtec 1 wire knock sensor.
