    ok my buddy has an 89 prelude si. it has a good knock on higher rpms. he came to me and asked if it was worth repairing dollar wise vs putting a new motor in there. so he asked me what motors can i put in there. i was guessing he could put any b series motor but i wanted to make sure of it! please let me know thanks!

    Why not a F series and boost it? That setup could be had for $1500 total, motor AND turbo. I know someone selling a F series Turbo kit ;) :lol:

    Me either :shrug: I'll do a quick search.

    Fatzingers in Bangor has F22 salvages for 250-400 all the time.

    It says a F or H series swap in that chassis is a lvl2 swap. Same basically as a straight swap with the right motor mounts. I'm not sure if they make mounts or not for that swap, but I'll search quick :)

    We understand that he can't spend a ton of money on it. Turbo&Auto isn't saying that he should get an H22, he's just saying that the F22 and H22 use the same mounts, so if he wants to put the F22 into that car, he will need the H22 mount kit.

    Grassy ass :)

    For money problems sake, the F22 is prolly the best choice! Its only a couple hundred for a complete salvaged one from Fatzingers. Then a mount kit and he should be good :) I have another F series ECU if he needs.
