    Just wanting see some numbers on how long it REALLY takes to do an H22a engine swap. The shop i got to do mine took almost 2 months to do mine, and i know it dont take nearly that long to the swap. Thats why i wish i would have had the time to do it myself, but i didnt so i let a shop do it, and i regret it.

    a shop should be able to blast out a full swap with 1 technician in 2 days. Maybe another day or two if problems come up, or your stock crap is rusted stuck.

    that's the only reason mine took forever. the exhaust bolts were stripped so i had to cut it with a sawz-all. the double pipe exhaust was a bitch to cut through. almsot all swaps should be done in 2 days.

    what do you need still. that's why i will be very very careful on doing a swap without just buying a clip. plus clips come with a bunch of cool jdm shit like steering wheels, shift knobs, maybe a good intake and header.

    yea...when i first found that i needed a new engine (my f22's crank broke in half...dont ask me how that happened...i wasnt even really gettin on it)....but after that happened...i really didnt know shit...and it sucks cuz now that ive went through all of this...ive learned so much and what i COULD have done...buying a front clip would have prollie been my best bet...grrrrr

    anyways...what im lacking from the shop is an ECU and Conversion Harness...

    what has just happened though, is my auto tranny went bad...so i am now in need of an automatic tranny and the TCU that runs it...

    other than those parts...i think they did the swap ok...im still gonna run over everything and check it out...
