Engine swap????

Hi i'm a new member with a question.....
Recently the timing belt pully came off of my jdm BA8 Lude and totalled the engine. Now i'm planning on swaping the dead lump for a freshly imported h22a.
Will i be able to fit this engine onto my gearbox? Can i put a vtec ecu in and not fry my electrics?
Damned if i know, can anyone please help me?

Re: Engine swap????

Yes, the motor and tranny do hook up, but get the H22 tranny or else you'll fall out of VTEC because the F22 gears are taller, unless you plan on boosting.
The ECU should come with your engine, but definitely get a VTEC ECU if it doesn't, P13 specific. If you plan on doing anything and tuning, go to www.phearable.net and get a P28 from him.
I recommend getting the motor from www.hmotorsonline.com. They're not the absolute cheapest but they are great quality with very good customer service, unlike 95% of the JDM engine import companies.

$1900 + 300 (LSD Upgrade) + shipping and handling = ???? prob $2500... :)


pounds are worth a piss load more than dollars, haha... you can get a good engine without tranny for a little over a grand, the trannies are high too.

Hello again. Finally got my nice JDM H22A in the car only to find NO OIL PRESSURE!!! AAAAAGH! We can't figure out what the f@%* is up with it !
Any ideas anyone as i'm having to use my ladys 1.1 Peugeot or a pushbike (which is marginally quicker), and frankly with the car being off the road for over two months now i'm starting to despair!

Please please can anyone come up with ANY ideas? (i'm in the UK)

Re: Engine swap????

The block on my h23 says "p13" on the back of it. You can only see it when the car is lifted. Does this have any relation to the ecu?
