Normal H22 swap to a Type R H22

So ive recently bought a prelude with a warped block from a dealer. im currently stuck on the question of whether i can swap the motor to a type r with out having to get a new transmission to go with it or not. if someone could answer my question thatd be great. if theres anything else i need to know bout the swap feel free to let me know!

Re: Normal H22 swap to a Type R H22

Do you have a base or an SH?

Re: Normal H22 swap to a Type R H22

its easier to get a new transmission so you can remove ATTS and tune it properly

Re: Normal H22 swap to a Type R H22

How is it easier? The OP hasn't specified whether he/she even wants to tune it! If they get a Type S engine, it will bolt straight up to the SH trans, all of the systems will work and everybody will be happy. Much easier than chasing a different trans then trying to make the S engine run without all the ATTS sensors.

Re: Normal H22 swap to a Type R H22

Im not planning on buying a brand new motor. So that solves the money issue. Ive seen the motor for about 1500 up to 2500. They even have it on ebay for 1488... lol

Re: Normal H22 swap to a Type R H22

just make sure that its really type s, because type s have atts and same transmission as sh but sir s-spec engine has lsd transmission so it doesnt work with sh

+ realize that its wise to rebuild it littlebit new seals/gaskets, new timing belt-things, new clutch, new ignition-parts and so on - that takes some money too
its not that you just slap it in there

Re: Normal H22 swap to a Type R H22

if your not planning on rebuilding, you should buy straight from hmotorsonline.com or jdmenginedepot.com, etc.

you will end up spending the difference, or close to it in the rebuild, if you do it properly. not a complete rebuild either, just to clear that future statement from someone lol

then you can drop it in, and they give you guarenteed startup time, low mileage engines. from ebay, you dont get ****. what you see in the pics is what you get. i bought a tv from ebay one time, said it was working and everything.

got it about a week after paying for it, plugged it in, wouldnt light up, wouldnt turn on, nothing. so i started toying with it (same day) and found out after opening the thing up, there were no internals..... other than a few, that were burnt boards, stripped wires, etc.

i put in a claim with ebay immediatly, sent pics, everything. i talked to them, they said they cannot do anything because there was no proof that i did not take out the internals myself. i fought with them and paypal for like 2 weeks before they finally blocked my old cell number, then i figured **** it. i got beat.

point being, you can buy an engine, and maybe end up with a warped block, or a cracked block, etc. you never know what your gonna get used. so you might as well go with a reputable site, that guarantees a warranty

Re: Normal H22 swap to a Type R H22

Yeah that few hundred extra $ is like insurance against rip off's from unknown's. The pro's make a living off selling good motors and they need a good rep to keep making a living. Many times ebay folks just making a buck or two and don't care about future sales. Now if it's a reputable firm that's selling for $1450, go for it. Do your homework before you hit the buy it now button.
Rebuild like T said is a good idea but if you've bought a guarenteed good one, you won't need to for a while.
