    :blink: Hi everyone I have a 89 civic hatch and just bought a H22 A1 and want to know if anyone has done this swap and what will I need to install? Also does anyone have the parts I need for sale? I'm also looking to find a company that sells different final drive gear ( like the ring and pinion in a rear wheel drive car) Thanks for all and any help

    should've done your research.


    I heard this is a hard swap for that era of civics. I was going to go this route myself, but it ended up being to much $$$.

    clearance is your main issue. youll need to cut and hammer out alot and may need to place your hood with a cowl induct peice depending on your mounting the motor.slim fan and radiator are a must, custom mounts and axles are a must aswell. there are a few siute that outline the swap but i dont know them now. i was going to do this swap til i got into eg hatches. wiring will have to be custom. id go to a junk yard and get a car harness from a prelude and mount that into the civic. do a little research to find those site that are helpful.good luck man!!

    I have the whole prelude. I can weld and do some metal fabing. Was hoping that someone made the mounts already.
