Re: 5th gen prelude sh model engine swap/parts guide

I would just swap in an H series Just to save any other complications

Motor
trans
one of the axles (don't recall which one, this is if you go with a non-SH, H-series motor)
ecu and harness depending on what motor you go with


that should about cover it... a local 'luder did the swap and said he only needed to change 1 of the axles when going to a standard H22a4, i think* he used the stock ecu and harness but can't remember 100%

since you're willing to go h22a - i assume you don't need to pass an obd2 plug in test, so you have many more options as far as the ECU goes.

If you're looking to do a build, just remember the ATTS system has a limit as far as power goes. And tuning options are also limited since most aftermarket tuning systems are not ATTS compatible.

Not saying it cant' be done - just be aware of the limits due to the ATTS.
