Icon8 Hydrolocked my 92 si

well on friday i was driving to school at 7:30 am and i was making a left turn through what looked like a small, shallow puddle near a drain and my car instantly suht off and stopped dead. i got towed home, and the next day i tried to spin the flywheel with a prybar and it wouldnt budge. at this point i knew i was completley f***ed and i decided to drop the oil pan to look to see how bad the damage was. long story short i snapped the #1 and #4 connecting rods.
So, im planning to use the money i was saving for my turbo h23 build to buy a jdm h22a swap with the lsd transmission. i am planning on buying it from jdm engine zone in clifton, new jersey. has anyone dealt with them before? i have seen a few reviews, all positive on their ebay store site, but i wanted to get some direct feedback from people who have bought swaps from them in the past. thanks in advance for any valuable input.

Re: Hydrolocked my 92 si

Sorry to hear it.


My friend bought a transmission from them, and it was fine. I've personally never used them but I've heard good things. Also check out a place called HMO (hmotorsonline). They're based out of Cali and they have extremely good quality stuff, and excellent reviews. They're a decent bit more expensive than most, but you get what you pay for.

Re: Hydrolocked my 92 si

i dunno anyone who has had a bad experience there

they made a mistake about having the motor/trans setup i wanted and gave me a euro-r swap for the same price, almost half of what it sells for

Google it....



When I looked for my engine I saw hundreds of terrible reviews for JDM Engine Depot.


JDM Engine Zone on the other hand, gets very good reviews.
