Need some quick assisstance!

Okay, well I think it's about time for me to get another motor. My H23 has lived it's legacy and paid her dues, but it's time for me to move on. I've replaced many parts and she runs like a champ (although the lifters should be fixed), but I'm sad that I don't have both things that every Honda driver should have...VTEC and a M/T transmission...with a pretty decent tax return check, I'm on the hunt for an H22 swap...So I ran into a guy that was selling a complete block, untorn down with no accessories and no head. To make up for this, I found a head on ebay for about 200 bux. So I figured if I use my accessories from my H23, buy a harness, and put the head and blcok together I'll have a whole engine? The question is, how is a complete head and complete block connected (is it just bolted up there and everything should line up or does it have to be professionally done?) and if I did accomplish this, what accessories could I exchange over to the H22 from an H23 (it's USDM btw)? Will they all bolt right up? and I'm pretty sure I'll have to extend a few lines...Also, what are the pin No. for wiring up VTEC, isn't it A6 and A20 or A22? Any help would be great...oh yeah, my H23 will be up for sale soon, let me know if you need one

It would end up costing you just as much as a complete long block. One you would have to buy a head gasket kit, some head bolts or studs ( there about 120 and the head gasket is 200 when I bought one ). I would just buy a long block and a ecu, use your h23 tranny ( there geared just a bit longer ) and call it a day.

yea, I've accounted for this too, but I'm definately not ready to bolt the same automatic tranny to an H22, the main purpose was so i could just do both at the same time although I do love the H23...I noticed that I actually pull on many H22 preludes from a start and then at about 50 they fly by me...is it cuz it's an automatic?

Oh your an auto.....well if you have the cash just get a swap man and try and find a guy parting out a 4th gen so you can get the clutch pedal, shifter set up, shift cables, master cylinder, and the slave cylinder. Oh and yeah its because your an auto. Oh and make sure you ask for every bolt, nut , and clip that is on the shifter/shifter cable set up.

yea man, i feel you, we had the same problem with my friend's accord...guy didn't give any bolts...the actual hook-up and assembly was okay, but the wiring was a b!tch to deal with but now i have an idea of how everything should be wired.

I'd just buy a whole swap (engine/motor/ECU/wiring) from an importer. It might cost slightly more, but the benefit is so many less headaches, time, etc.
