    Hi every one I'm a new-guy to the whole "Import" scene and i'm used to working on american cars so any help would be appreciated.

    Any way I have an 1989 Prelude, 2.0si, 4WS with a B20A5 motor and a hydrolic Trannsmission. I have been doing some research on what I can put into it as a replacement and the H22A comes up to be the most I hear about. I waould like to find a "swap-kit" for this if at all possible to make things a little more simple and the fact that I have never modified a set of motor mounts beforeand don't really want too. If anybody knows anything on this swap or has ever made this swap PLEASE let me know.

    :werd: The H22A is not a drop in motor for that car, but there are kits.

    The h22a swap is a very hard one right now... only a handful have done it. It costs around $6k-7k to do, and it will take about half a year. The PRI mounts are wrong, and do not fit... so you need to get them rewelded. Then you needa get custom axles, and hope they fit. Then you needa rewire it for the OBD-1 motor, plus the normal stuff a swap needs. Smaller things with the tranny needa be done also. Overall, it's a cool swap, but for the money, I would not do it personally unless someone gets correct mounts and axles.
