    ok i have a 94 Honda Accord EX 5-speed. It has the standard f22b1 engine. I love it to death but kinda want more. It is only a sohc so i was thinking of swapping it for a 94 prelude H22 obd1 engine. I found a package deal that comes with the H22 engine, the tranny, axles and the ecu for 3500. anyone know where to get one cheaper? i don't even really need the axles... or do i? i am new to all this stuff. i know i prolly sound like a complete retard but hey oh well gotta start somewhere right? :\ thanks for any and all help

    since you were willing to pay that much, go with LSD tranny, youll be glad you did!

    The guys at Hmotors rock. I dont know anyone whos had a bad experience with them.

    BTW, wrong forum, this should be in swaps, but im sure tab or another mod will fix that.

    First off where do you live? if you live in cali don't plan on ever passing smog. Not with a jdm motor at least. any other state in the union other than N.Y. and a select few, and you are home free.

    Why not? it has an EGR valve and the motor is out of a car made in the same year?

    Is there more to it that i dont know?

    And yeah, Cali has some very strict smog regulations - just one of the reasons not to live there. :lol:

    Ouch....you might run into problems, even with a USDM H22. I was under the impression that engine swapping is a big no-no when living in Cali. Then again, I don't live there, so I'm not sure.

    It would have to be the same or newer year engine, with similar specs.

    I'd check with a smog station for exact rules. You might be able to get away with a JDM engine.
