4th gen engine and gearbox into 5th gen car

this may sound a little stupid to someone whose done it but,
does a 4th gen prelude engine and gearbox drop straight int a 5th gen prelude?

was wondering if there are any drive shaft issues to worry about,
that's why i want to know if anyone's done it ?

manual or auto doesn't really matter.

really need to know.

Re: 4th gen engine and gearbox into 5th gen car

cheers for that im putting a fully reconditioned H22A JDM 4th gen engine and AUTO gearbox into my 5th gen AUTO and changing from obd2 to obd1 and the only thing bothering me is that the drive shafts will fit?
do i use the existing 5th gen ones or do i have to fit the 4th gen ones?

my 5th gen uses the half shaft system where one of the shafts are actually 2 shafts with a connecting joint and bearing.
but the 4th gen only has 2 shafts "NO HALF SHAFT"

what do you guys say?

That's because the 4th gen autos didnt use equal length axles. You should be able to use the axles and intermediate shaft from your 5th gen. I have done the same but opposite. Mine was a 4th gen with 5th gen auto/H22 and everything from the 4th gen fit just fine.

As mentioned before it does seem like a waste to not put in a 5 speed while you are there.

Re: 4th gen engine and gearbox into 5th gen car

nice to hear theres no issues with the drive shafts.

Even shafts are better, they help with torque steer. As far as reasoning, who knows but if I had to guess I would say that they weren't as worried about performance out of an automatic prelude in the 4th gen.

I was also happy with my auto, till it died. I even had the JDM auto with LSD. The automatics are notorious for leaving one stranded on the side of the road.

Re: 4th gen engine and gearbox into 5th gen car

mine is jdm with LSD did over 150 thousand mile no problems at all!
have totally reconditioned my gearbox replacing all 4 clutch sets,all seals,all springs and solvent cleaned all components,all bearings have been replaced,
this is now essentially a brand new gearbox.
also did the same with the H22A JDM engine.
far more thorough job than any recon company would do.
these gearbox's run forever when i tried to get a gearbox specialist to quote for the job they didn't know what it would cost because they and all other similar company's said they have never worked on one as they don't go wrong if looked after.

am suspecting the sumps"oil pans" are interchangeable as the 5th gens have alloy sumps apposed to the steal 4th gens.yes i want to swap as the alloy ones dissipate heat from the oil better.
does anyone know of any issues.
