    I've currently got a 92 JDM Si VTEC 'lude which I'm thinking of using to build a H22 Civic hatch next year and have a few questions.

    1. Which varient of EG Civic is best to use? I don't have any real knowledge of Civics TBH.

    2. I'm in the UK so it'll be RHD- will this prove any problem?

    3. I'm gonna use the Prelude calipers, is it worth/possible to use the 'lude M/C too?

    4. What kind of weight is a H22 EG?

    5. Think I'm gonna go with the HCP mounts- are these recommened? Any others worth considering? I was gonna fabricate some up myself but it seems the engine position is fairly critical.

    6. I've seen you can use a mix/match of differwnt Honda axels, seeing as I already have the Prelude parts what bits other parts do I need to complete the axel assembly?


    I've probably got more questions but can't remember what they are at the minute! Found quite a bit when I searched too.:cool:

    Hasports come in at $599 plus shipping, I was hoping for something a little cheaper TBH! Plus the rear engine braket is listed separate at $75 too?
    Surely you need all of them?

    Don't suppose anyone has some accurate drawings for the mounts do they? :ph34r:

    So any EG at all? Am I right in thinking the DX is carb'd? Would I have to source a fuel pump too?

    Has anyone been sucessful with the Enjo mounts?

    ahhvtec- 9003?

    thanks for the help so far guys :cool:

    eg arent carbed and the engine bays are all the same on eg.. the best for a h22a is the ek you dont have to cut anything like a eg

    Ahh I thought some of the basic models were carb'd. I'll check to see if its a UKDM thing.

    I prefer the EG TBH but if a EK came up at the right price I could be tempted.

    I've read somewhere EGs run a better axel angle than the EKs though- any truth in that?

    you can't use integra axels for an h22 swap. The only way to do that is to make hybrid axels by taking h or f series axels and b series axels and swapping out the inner side of the b series axel with the h series. This is a very nasty job, any body who had opened up the boot on a used axel and got axel grease all over them will back me up on this. Also these hybrids are very prone to reliability problems from what i hear. Best thing to do is to buy custom axels from hasport or Raxles ect. Good luck.

    Whoever told you those axels are 90-93 integra's is nuts. My buddy heard the same thing on honda-tech and tried it on his eg hatch with h22 and it didn't work. Also 90-93 integra axels are the same as 94-01 except the halfshaft is different. That means that the passenger side axel of any integra is the same and would imply that the passenger side axel of any h series would be the same as any b series which is not true. The spline count on the H series axel is different than that of the b series and that is why they are not interchangeable.

    well as far as ther eg i dont no but the ek you use integra axles ive done over 30 swaps all use integra axles,, so if you dont agree with me there you need to hit the books or just ask any respectable member here and they will tell you that im right.

    Cheers for the help guys!

    So if I get some 90-93 Teg axles and 90-93 Accord half shaft it'll be sweet?

    Will they take the 200 bhp okay? I'm willing to try them before shelling out for the custom ones TBH.

    I'm gonna look for a EG after New Year, think I'm gonna go with an ESi- engine/interior will be more resaleable. Plus I'm fairly sure they come with rear discs as standard.

    So has anyone used the Prelude M/C on a EG?
