Seriously Considering Engine swap. Help!

Hey, So Im looking into doing an engine swap, however, I can't find a way to get an engine here ( Canada ). Password JDM only ships to the states, and i have been searching, but to no avail, in finding a good, low mileage, reliable h22. I would like this to be done by summer, but i cant find one to even start with :(

How close are you to the US? Do you know anyone in the US that would allow you to have the motor delivered to their place and you go drive and pick it up??? You could easily rent a truck for a few days and go pick it up. around here a U-Haul is like 18 $USD/day (somethin like $24 CAD right?) for the smallest truck they own. Plus you pay for mileage and gas.

Re: Seriously Considering Engine swap. Help!

No, unfortunately, i have nobody outside canada that could have it dropped off for me. I am about 14 hour drive north of the border, so it would probably be ust as expensive to pick up from the states as to get it delivered...

Re: Seriously Considering Engine swap. Help!

Theres some h22's going pretty cheap here in rochester, go on www.craigslist.org and search rochester,ny and look in the parts section. If you live in canada it's not that bad of a drive im prob going to the falls soon to do a photo shoot with another guy on the forum and i'm going to hit up the party scene in canada while im there. Engines going in on wed and then ill prolly go the weekend after if everything turns out good.

be careful of ebay... I have seen some duds come from ebay (look at feedback obviously)... I know there is a thread somewhere on this site that has a bunch of websites to order from... (some actually sell on ebay too for a touch cheaper)... Prelude Engine Importer Site List there....

I know some of those places are in canada, so they should deliver there :P...

as for the f22b... if it had no number after the b is is a jdm version of the h23a1 (slightly destroked, but basically the same stats... it's not the base engine, it's the SI engine...)... accords have f22a, correct?

good luck!

Re: Seriously Considering Engine swap. Help!

yes the f22 came in the s type 4th gen prelude and it doesnt have the frm sleeves that the h22 and h23 have so it is safes to boost and respones very well to boost.
