Exclamation 92 engine swap

i have a 92 4 door with the 2.2 with a bad trans i was thinking since im changing the trans i would get a motor also, what years of honda motors would bolt up and have the best power

if you're looking for power i would definitely look into an h22 swap. you will want one form the 92-95 prelude. you can either use the h22 trans or f22 trans if you have one already i believe. it puts out 200 hp. swap isnt extremely complicated but takes some wiring mods and motor mount mods as well.

thanks for the reply i have tried to search the h22 swap but couldnt find any thing about it for my accord, so what all is exactly needed to swap i know u said motor mounts and wiring mods... but i read on here that it will fit right in, im wanting to go ahead and start on the swap because i know where to get the prelude motor and trans for a pretty reasonable price i have i pretty good while to work on it and get it right because i cant get my license back untill jan..

not a problem, yeah it pretty much does fit right in the engine compartment. they were the same design in the accords and preludes from those years. the wiring harness from your current engine will need to be modified to fit the h22. need to extend some connections and add some new ones. the swap is pretty much learn as you go from what it seems and with the time you have it shouldn't be a problem.

you're also gonna need the prelude's ECU
hoses for radiator and heater
you will need to have the accords high pressure power steering hose spliced to the prelude's, lower part of accord to upper part of prelude, they need welded by a shop.
keep accord axles i believe
use accords motor mounts but the driver side mount will need modified.
your exhaust is not gonna match up so it needs modded.
I also believe there is an issue with the ignition cap and rotor, maybe use accord's distributor?

thats what i can think of, good luck, keep us updated.
