    hey everyone im new to these boards, i have a question about my 97 honda civic ex.
    if you want pics of my car here they are

    MY CAR

    i have a 97 civic ex and the engine now is a sohc piece of crap, i want alot bigger

    i've decided after reading other posts that i want a h22 prelude engine swap but im wondering if i would have to get ride of my a/c or how much trouble it would be to install, or how much would someone do it professionaly. also i should mention that my car is a auto as of now but should i wait to get an h22 engine to convert or convert to 5spd first or does the angine come with tranny

    hope i made sense, thx

    You would have to get mounts to bolt in am h22 engine into your car, from hasport.com or hcpengineering.com , professionally installed should be anywhere from $400-800 installed if a mechanic is that good priced, and you would have to install a pedal assembly for 5spd application, also I have a H22a package for sale, ECU (OBD1) Tranny, shifter and linkage and engine with only 30k miles on it for only $2200.00 plus shipping, hope this helps,

    automatic with stickers

    ohh boy.

    dropping an h22 in there along with a 5-speed conversion, you are looking at close to 5 grand. do you have that kind of money- thats the first thing you need to consider

    yea, to be honest, what i would do is try to sell all of the stuff that is on your car, sell the car, take off the stickers and get yourself a manual version of that car. then drop in the h22.

    and about the a/c, there is a way to relocate the a/c somewhere, but not sure if they make specific kits for it.

    Why dont u just buy a turbo kit for $1500-2000 and run 9psi and that will give you just as much is if you ran a stand alone h22 , ????

    yea lol, i just got the car and the previose owner did all the ground effects and lookin good stuff but i want power.

    i hate the engine in now and im auto so if i get an engine swap itll be easier to do it all at once. engine swap +5sp conversion. then it wont be bad at all. hell i just might go with the b16 since its not that much less in power and hell alot easier and apparently cheaper.

    what u guys think?

    also later down the road im planning on adding turbo/or supercharger to the engine i get so im not gona mod my engine i got now.
