H23 MCJA vs M6HA

Hello everyone,

My wife recently made me aware that she's always loved the 5th gen Prelude, her birthday is coming up in a few months and I would love to get her one. The only issue is that she does not drive manual transmissions, she can operate one somewhat successfully, but would prefer an automatic.

I've been doing some research and have ran into the obvious fact that the M6HA will most likely fail. My question is;

Is the MCJA any more reliable than the M6HA?
If I purchased a complete H23 bluetop with Auto how difficult is this swap?
I've been pouring over diagrams and pictures and I can see one obvious difference; I assume I'm looking at the VSS that is not present on the MCJA and again assume that the H23 ecu picks this info up from a different location - otherwise the cases seem to be identical.

I'm coming from the Audi world, so I'm no stranger to odd mechanics and have done many engine swaps in the past.

Thanks in advance.

You might be the first to consider that.

Sounds worth a try.

I suppose if you could find an accord wagon service manual, that may answer your question.

I do know the 5speed vss is set up for 5 gears and the auto is set up for 4 gears, so ratios differ.

Maybe do some lurking at Honda-Tech where people speak of all them Honda made cars. Some are doing H23 motors in Civics and Accords.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Thanks for your reply. I'll keep hunting for the service manual for the ch9 sir wagon. I'll check out honda tech as well.
