    I was just wondering what engine would be best to put in my 92 prelude sir? I took out the stock HF-2-2A. Now i'm not sure what to put in. Any advice, would be greatly appreciated.

    whyd you take it out. The H22A is the best engine for that car as far as im concerned.

    Well, H or F? F22 is bottom of the line, H22 is top of the line. Also, knowing which one you had will help determine your best course.

    H22 is DOHC VTEC. F22 is SOHC non-vtec.

    I didn't think the Prelude had an SIR. I think that was an Accord. The Prelude has SI, Type S, Atts models.

    He could be located somewhere other than the US. Honda offered a Prelude SiR elsewhere. I'm just too lazy to search. :D

    The SiR was produced in Japan. It is stamped HF-2-2A. Im not to sure if it is the F2-2A or what. I've been searching everywhere to find out, no luck :(

    No it doesn't say anything on the valve cover. The guy i bougth it from said it has a 2.3 if that helps... If it is the h-2-2 all i will have to do is change the crank shaft, but if it is the F-2-2 what would i be able to swap it for? and would i need any modifications to make it fit? I appreciate your help guys. I wana get this car on the road asap!!!
