I need an engine!!

Im buying my friends I believe '97 Prelude. The only thing wrong with it is that it needs a new motor. Im getting a good price for it but I can't find an engine for a good price. Any one have an engine to sell me or know where I can find one (jdm or not).

craigslist is usually the cheapest but hard to find on there. hmotorsonline is the top for buying motors and I've heard mixed reviews about tiger japanese.

Re: I need an engine!!

okay sweet. I think I've made up my mind. I'm going to go with the 'H22A TYPE S OBD 2 DOHC VTEC Engine & 5 Speed Transmission Honda Prelude 97+.' Any one see any problems I might have? Is it pretty straight forward?

Re: I need an engine!!

do you have the base or SH? i take it you have the base since you are getting a Type S motor with the tranny or unless the car you are buying doesnt have the tranny and motor as well. if you have the SH model all you need is the motor and swap over a few things from the old h22 if possible to make it obd2 compliant. however if it's the base model, jdm h22 or h23a bluetop would be a good choice, especially h23vtec since it has .1 liter more and you could just throw in the type s cams with valvesprings. your choice but let us know what you decide.
