    H22 would be the obvious choice. Fairly easy swap as well...

    Thank you that was the thought i hd, what do you think is a reasonable price for someone to do the complete swap?

    I'd say it'd be around 5-6k to just drop it off at a shop, and pick it up with a new engine.

    If you wanna do some leg work you might be able to get out a bit cheaper.

    Is it family? Just wonder where the engine is coming from at that price.

    Also, the computer for the H22 is different and finding a legit one without an immobilizer can be challenging.

    A lot of places charge between 1 and 3k for labor on this job, and the engine is USUALLY between 2 and 3k for one in decent condition. So at that price i'd just say be cautious.

    I mean this IS hondaswap.

    Its a difference of about 50hp, so it is definitely a noticeable change. It's also a better platform to find upgrades for if you want to do anything.

    If you'd like to have a nice reliable car to get you to and from work/school, then i'd just replace the clutch.
