    engine swap for 92 prelude

    i resently got a 92 prelude sr with a blown motor. the motor is the 2.3 h23. since i have to buy a new motor anyway i figured id go a step up and get the h22a which is 30 hp more and is the vtec. my question is what will i have to change for the swap and also where are good sites and places for motors. ive been looking at jdm. thanks alot

    check out hasport.com they do kits for engine swaps in honda, and you can get some more info from them. go to goole and type in prelude formus. also, go to automotiveforums.com, and go to honda, then to prelude, and search there. hope that helped.



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    Re: engine swap for 92 prelude

    i looked at them but for the price there is no comparison. to get a b series motor that actually is in close with the h22a its much more money to spend. plus the h-series motors arnt that extremly heavy to began with. also now that i have this h23 engine with all the parts in good condition other than the block and 1 piston what should i do with it, as in how can i get money for it. are there any places that i can sell it or sell the parts. thanks alot. oh and jtomsic did he do that swap himself, if he did what all did he need.

    the h22's dont make as much power with basic bolt-ons as b-series engines tho. also u might want to check jdmhondaparts. com for engines and other information.
