    This will my first official project and I'm looking for some advice as to what i'm going to need to swap out my d16z6 auto with an h22a manual , other than motor and trans?

    I was thinking of going to a local pick&pay junkyard trying to find an unscavaged Prelude and pick the engine bay apart. I also know I would need the wiring harness, shift linkage, and axles.

    you're going to need pedals, wiring, all sorts of shit. after market mounts and axles. it's a big project. i would get the engine, tranny, and ecu ASAP and start collecting the smaller stuff later.

    You'll need interior pieces from manual del sol as well to make the shifter work. And with the cable setup of the h22, you need to cut the firewall to allow the shifter cables through.

    A b-series swap is a LOT easier... if its your first project, it might be a better idea to start with an easier project

    Why do you want to do "the hardest thing possible" as your first swap? lol

    Start easy. learn stuff along the way, advance when the time is right.


    Otherwise, 6 months from now, you'll have a CL post up saying "buy all my shit for pennies on the dollar, i give up" and an empty shell of a hacked up car to the junkyard.



    You don't just 'swap in and make a civic RWD'. It's months of custom fabrication and re-enforcement and positioning and leveling--- and that's just to mount the block. Then there's routing a drive shaft in a car with no driveshaft tunnel.
    and 3242432432432 other things that will leave you hi and dry.


    Think realistic. Not "I want to be different"

    Like I said I gave up on the dream but I want to swap the h22 in because it's easier and it fitsI just need a parts list to get started.

    Yeah. Leave that to us dickheads that aren't afraid to cut and weld things that should not be cut and welded.

    95% of non B/H series swaps don't get finished. Everybody has a dream build, but not everybody has a dream budget.
