    you should use the prelude passanger side, driver side, and rear mounts, use the accord front mount.

    the driver side prelude mount will have to me grided down just a lil bit to fit. but other than that you should be good to go.

    i suggest using as many prelude parts as you can.

    its been awhile since i have done this swap so double check my work!!!

    good luck

    Fourth gen is easy.

    Go to the junkyard and get 90-93 F22 mounts. Honda probably charges way too much.

    YES, DEFINITELY

    Also, I have used both LX and EX mounts with perfect success. If you ask me, the H22 is actually easier to mount than the F22. The accessory brackets make accessory mounting nicer, and the engine shape is slightly different.

    The motor is already in?

    In that case, get the hardware you need. Next, think of the "installed" mounts as pivot points. Take your front thrust mount loose and hook on to your transmission pull ring with a hoist and a chain. This will tilt the motor and transmission toward the front of the car. Then fight the new mount in. It might be easier to remove the black part from the intake, or at least loosen it.
