H22 swap in 87 2.0 si transmission question

I'm looking into dropping a h22a1 from like a mid 90s prelude into mine wondering if I can take the easy way and just bolt my tranny onto the new engine. Like will my stock 87 transmission line up with a h22?? Or will I have to get one that's got a tranny already on It..

No - the transmission in your car will not bolt onto a H22 motor.

H22 swap

You will not find anything for H22 swap that will just bolt on from existing era parts, H22 is from much newer generation you need to swap out entire engine wiring loom, or go complete custom ECU and harness (latter probably easier and better but a lot more expensive), You'll need to have custom mounts and possibly custom front subframe designed and fabricated, you'll need to cut and shunt drive shafts to suit and they'll have to be done by driveshaft specialist so they're not wobbly and vibrating everything to pieces, you'll have to convert to hydraulic clutch as original is cable, and you'll need a custom exhaust manifold made as well, don't forget about your brakes as the originals just about coped with the power it had at the time let alone something with a lot more power and weight.

It can be done and has been done some done very well some done very badly but will involve massive amounts of time if your capable of doing yourself or tonne of money that quite frankly your just tossing down the loo as the car will never be worth a great deal when done.

BTW the original engine can be built to quite a potent amount of power mine has 200bhp and I've not had to use anything expensive in the actual block all standard parts, most expensive bits were the weber carbs, and custom exhaust the rest pretty reasonable cost like inlet manifold, cam, valves, but head work could be pricey unless you can do yourself or know someone that can do a good head job.
