    :unsure: My 1990 Accord (5 speed) have 175000 miles, starting to give some problems. Instead of of doing an engine overhaul, I have been thinking of getting a new engine with more power. I know a littli bit about mechanics but I do not understand the different engine available, and which one I can swap without much modifications.

    I live in Louisville, KY.

    I need help.

    Holy wrong forum Batman! Moving....

    Try searching the forum a little. I'll bet you'll get lots of info about swapping an H22 or H23 into your car.

    Hey man if your looking for the cheaper of the two that I think is worth it is the H23A1 swap you can find the full swap for the average of $1000 if not cheaper it's got lower compresion to turbo and you can always do the vtec head swap down the road for a good power boost I'm doing it in my 4dr 91' accord. But the H22A is a pretty bad motor too, both out of preludes. Good Luck!

    Go with the h22a your car will be running as good as new if you get it from JDMPower.net :p. An H23 swap is good too. If you are going to do it yourself do the H23 since you wont have to do any type of difficult wiring.

    Difficult wiring?

    The difference in wiring an H22 and an H23 involves two wires for VTEC.
