    Would it be possible to swap an h22 into a 97 acura cl 2.2? Has anyone ever done it before, or should different options be looked at or just get a new car? Any info and/or links would be a great help.

    I thougth the CL's had 3.2 V6's? If it does you may as well forget it. It would be a waste. Be like everone else and buy a 240 or Evo8 or maybe a WRX.

    Not the first generation cl's. They had a 2.2, 2.3 4 cylinder or a 3.0 v6 in them. and an evo 8 or wrx, thats kinda a difference of $24,000. The H22 would be around $2500 and labor isnt a problem. And it's not like he would be buying the car. My friend already has it.

    I've heard of H22 swaps in the 1G CLs, but I've never seen one or really heard that much tech about it. I'm sure it's a pretty easy swap though.
