    hey guys, yesterday my torque converter went out, and it will cost 1200 dollars the fix the pos f22a, so i was wondering spend 1300 dollars more and by a new h22a engine for my accord. everyone is saying go buy a new car, or its not worth dropping a new engine, but these people dont have the connection i have with my car. i was wondeing what you guys think should i go for a new engine or new car, graduation is coming up and all of my relative( i have a lot) will be sending me bunches of money, but not nearly enough for a new car, but enough for a new engine, and possibly some extra after market parts. Just let me know what you think.

    NEW CAR?

    OR

    NEW ENGINE?

    i am looking to turbo it also but i don't want an auto, the h23 is auto, manuel is better, but i would like your input about why everyone is saying to use the h23 to turbo? i don't entirely know, oh and how much do u think it will cost to get the engine and drop it in. I mean i will take out my old one and drop the new one but i was woundering about the rest of the hook ups, i don't think i can connect everything.

    peace.

    The H23's came both in a 5-speed and automatic.

    The H23's are better for boost because they've got an extra tenth of a liter of displacement, the trannies that come with them are geared longer, and you don't have to worry about tuning a turbo with VTEC.

    If you don't feel comfortable dropping an engine in yourself, I'd say find some friends and a Helm's manual (along with your buddies here at Hondaswap) and it should be pretty straightforward. Otherwise, you may be better off buying yourself a new car.

    hay everyone,

    i have this inside guy that will get me anything i need for cheap. and low and behold i can get an h22 for about 2500 or 3200(installed), this guy is great, but what do u think, and do u think the 700 dollar differnce is worth it, and do u think with the extra 700 green ones that they will hook everything up, i mean the ecu wireing and everything?

    peace

    The H23 is a DOHC non-VTEC engine. Period the-end.

    If that's the shipped price, yes. If not, I'd shop around for better deals.
