    I have a 94 prelude with a f22. The motor is not original, from what I understand this car should have the h22 (I checked the vin #) and I started searching for an engine. The logical choice would be the h22, although I have been considering the f20b (accord sir). But yesterday I found a decent price on a 94 tsx motor with the 6 speed tranny and wire loom/cpu. So the question is; can I put the k24a2 into my 94 prelude and if so what else do I need and how much sh*t do I have to fabricate?

    Thanx for the help :D

    I would expect a good bit of fabrication would be involved. You may get some info from Hasport as far as the installation of the engine, assuming didn't just drop the engine in the bay to make the mounts and actually hooked it up and ran it in the car. I honestly don't know any specific information about swapping that into a Prelude, but it does sit backwards compared to the Prelude engine so I doubt anything from the car will line up with the engine without some fabrication.

    f22 did come in the prelude. as far as the K, not something I'd wanna tackle. If the price is good on the K get it and sell it, put the profit towards building the currnet engine. the f22 is a solid engine, and boosts nicely.

    honestly the 4th and 5th gens are just a waste IMO to build.... they are really heavy cars....


    id just keep the F22, slap on the H22 head (gotta change the water pump), ecu, jumper wire for vtec, intake manifold (must be H22) and also must block off some oil passages.....

    much MUCH cheaper then ordering a H22, not to mention the bottom end on the F22 is really stout, the F22a1 is 8:8:1 and the H22a is 10:5:1.... with this combo you should be right at 9:2:1.... still good for some decent boost.....

    good luck which ever route you pursue :cool:

    yet again the brillant budget concious minds of hondaswap are probably right. for the money you will spend on buying the k-series motor and dropping it in your car you would be better off going a jdm h22a head, doing the fabrication work, and using the rest of the money to boost the motor. Chances are you can find an f22 based turbo kit for pretty cheap. But if you don't care how much it would cost go for the k24 swap. Find a jdm k20 head from the rsx-s and swap the head and you will have a very nice motor setup to put money into. Plus very few people drop k-series motors into Preludes, generally people go with a crx or a hatchback for a swap like this to make an all out balls to the walll drag car.
