    I want to make over 250hp..

    I was wondering what would be the best motor to swap into my 94 civic..

    How hard is it to put a h22a in a 5th gen civic?

    I love tourqe and I know with b16's you just dont get none.

    I know that the more displacement you have the more tourqe
    hence the h22a v.s. the b16....




    And please dont ask what my budget is.. I have one ..

    An H22A into a 5G Civic is pretty easy these days. Mount kits are everywhere, and all you need are a few extra brackets to keep your AC and PS too.

    Calesta,

    What about the extra weight up front would I have to buy stiffer springs...I have eibach prokit with eibach struts...

    I know I can the motor off hmotorsonline for around 2200, plus they can give the right mounts, shift linkage, lsd tranny and the axles to make it all fit in the civic..

    I just wanted to know if you have to beat up your engine bay to make it fit?

    Thanks

    Why not go with a boosted F series? The motors are like 400 and a turbo kit can be made for a lil over 1K with some mechanical skill. I made 200whp and 250wtq with a budget friendly setup. At 8psi with stock clutch and injectors I ran a 14.5. After tuning and all, I feel it could've run a VERY low 14 possibly a high 13. The F series block can be boosted to hell and take it pretty well. 8.8:1 CR stock ;)

    The EG has one of the most swap friendly engine bays. I think you do have to make a dent or two, but nothing major.

    The extra weight isn't that much, but if you're really worried about it, Progress Auto makes H series swap springs for your car.

    Uh Oh

    Ummmmmm....................theres been enough hondaswap pissy fights since I joined. And I dont think its worth it.

    Not taking a personal stab at you, just trying to prevent another one. And keep the image of hondaswap a good one.

    Well im no swap expert but I think all you need is a mount kit.

    Any motor can be boost friendly its the money and knowledge part of it that makes it work.

    Who ever told you that, dont go back to them.
