Hey guys,

I was thinking about buying the JDM h22a engine and putting it in my 92 Honda Accord EXI. The only problem is that I live in Australia and I have a sneaking suspicion that the engine might be difficult to come across. I was wondering if anyone out there knew of any dealers or distributors located in Australia that I could talk to. Also, what would be the price range I'd be lookin at for the engine and will it be an easy installation?

Thanks people

Another quick question ...

Whats the hp difference between the current engine in the car and the h22a ? Has anyone done any dyno's or anything on this?

Thanks

As for the JDM engine. I was talkn to an Aussie based dealer about importing a car for me to the states. They said you can find a lot of the same engines as the ones in Japan. Like, civic's have b-series in them, etc. I dont think a h22 will be hard to come across. The US seems to be the only one who is fucked when it comes to engine choices.

Yea

If I start havin a look round I don't think it will be too difficult to come across ... I had a look under the hood today and realised my engine was an f22a9 ... I was wonderin if neone out there knew nethin bout this engine as I cannot find it in the HondaSwap reference guides and on the net ... It seems as though it did not ship with the vast majority of the Accords (or at least the ones that I've seen thru this forum and on other sites on the net) ... Perhaps, it was directly imported from Japan or something ... I'm not too sure ... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Ok

I've learnt a shitload bout this engine swap in the past 2 days or so but I was wondering if neone out there had dropped the h22a into a 92 Accord LX cause I wouldn't mind seeing how difficult it is (Can you still use the existing Accord mounts n shit for it?)

Thanks guys

Really?

I've heard of people droppin a 00 JDM h22a engine into the 4th Gen Accord. 93 is rumoured to be the fastest, is that right? What year would you guys recommend?

Yea thats a good point man

So you think 93 would be the way to go?

How bout the f22 tranny? Will it be alright with an h22a in it?

A 92-95 H22 will work fine for you. I don't see why you'd want to use an F-series tranny with the H-series engine, since it's geared longer and is weaker. But, if you've got access to a cheap H22 longblock minus tranny, then yeah, you can use the F22 tranny.
