    im looking to buy a new engine for my 89 prelude and i need help on what would fit with little hassle. The Jdm B18C G1 has caught my eye and i was wondering if anyone has ever done this swap. help me out if you know anything about it or think it would work or not. im pretty much a noob and have never done a swap. help me out guys i really need it.

    It has been done, but it was a one-off and the person did not give too much info about the swap.

    But here are the issues you will have.

    1. the engine is too tall, you will not be able to lower it at all.
    2. you will neen custom mounts
    3. it will be a wiring nightmare
    4. custom axles
    5. intake manifold is way to long, and will be a fittment issue. that will be have to worked out when making mounts.
    6. engine angle, needs to be leaned back, just like the stock B20A5

    Just either Turbo Charge a B20A (JDM), or swap the H22 into your car.
    I already addressed the swap issues and I had the mounts made by index
