    My 97 Prelude engine (h22a) has 3 seized valves and pistons. The aluminum block is in shitty condition. So it pretty much pisses oil. The engine has been dropped, dismantled and cleaned. I got a quote of $5500 CAD for a complete re-build. That price seems kinda high. I'm not against putting in a used engine as long as it has low kms and is in better than good condition. I don't want an aluminum block though. What would people recommend I do? Would a 98-01 h22a work if I got a different wiring harness, mount and stuff? Or what would be a good engine to put in?

    Thanks.

    That is a crapload of money just to rebuild a motor.. I would just buy a low mile engine from Japan and drop it in for way less. You can get an H22a long block from Specializing in JDM-USDM Engines & Parts...hmotorsonline.com and drop it right in as long as you get the right year.
