    You can swap alot of motors in the Accord. Which one do you want?
    My buddy has a H22 in his Accord and it cost him about $2600 for everything by the way he had someone do his swap thats why it was so much.

    I think the one you want is the H22A it is rated with 190hp or 200hp I can't remember. The one that is 220hp is the Type SH motor. The type SH motor is better but more expensive. You will be fine turbocharging the H22A.

    Osakajdmmotors aka Osaka motors is the worst vendor online. They will send you a hydrolocked engine if your lucky.

    hmotorsonline.com !!!!double :thumbsup:

    osaka is garbage, there have been a select few who've had problems with hmotors but it's so few and there were reasons for it, warranty was over before they put in the motor and whatnot, they always tryed to fix it depending on the situation. You have to realize that your motor would come with a few broken sensors because of the idiots who handle your motor, I've had 3 different shipping companies ship motors to me, all of them had something wrong, one company even broke the crank pulley.

    You want the JDM H22A, from a Prelude.

    The JDM H22A from the Prelude Type S (not SH, that's USDM only) has 220 hp and much higher compression, and will be tougher to turbo down the line.

    And yes, stay away from Osaka.

    Edit: You want an OBD2 H22A.

    Yes get your h22 from hmotorsonline thats where I got mine from and if yours is a 97 accord you might want to get the obd2 and if you have the extra funds you might want to think about getting it with the lsd tranny

    a full decent H22 swap is going to run you between 1800-2700(motor,ecu,tranny, possibly harness) depending on what H22 u get...hmotorsonline has some good motors with good warrentys but check out EBAY as well. i got mine from EBAY for 1059.87 shipped to my door from a reputable company and the shit runs as sweet as a kit kat

    Screw that guy. He's doing you good in the ass. :IDB: :lol:
    The swap, if it includes the tranny, ECU, motor, timing belt change, water pump change, and a reach-around; That would be fair. Just for the motor install, that price is high.

    Your motor should be under 1500. The install should be done by someone who has done this swap before. Cheap work by UNprofessionals is fine, but cheap work by pros should be avoided.

    Anything 96 or newer in the US is OBD2. There is the 2a, 2b, etc. An OBD2 motor would make your life simpler, however, you may want to convert to OBD1 for tuning your turbo application later. A conversion harness and a OBD1 ECU would be needed for that.
