|QuickAsThundr||It’s pretty easy, as long as you have space and time, it’s pretty straight forward. I swapped an SH motor into my base and it took a few weekends but that was mainly from waiting for parts(not gonna pay parts store prices) and making a half shaft mount bracket(only difference besides oil filter location on SH). I’d say go for it|

No, if you have an SH engine, you must replace with another SH engine block, or a JDM Type-S. Nothing else will work as far as a simple drop-in replacement.

|419lude||I have the sh model h22a4, on hmotors its the 97-98 longblock with the black valve cover. And as far as seapping iv done alot of stuff to my hondas so with the right stuff i shouldnt be bad. Im hoping it will be an easy swap with a tune.|

Depends. Is the other motor an H22a4 or another variant of the H motor?
If it's the exact same motor, and matches your car (SH blocks differ from Base blocks) it will be a straight swap. Although I always recommend changing oil seals etc prior to installing a newer motor.
First time through with the right tools - i'd say it's doable within a day, depending if you're mechanically inclined or not.

H22 same motor swap
Found a low miles h22 motor. I have a 97 prelude with the h22a4 longblock (black top). Have 200k motors seen its better days so im gonna buy a good motor. How hard is it to swal the same motor? Iv never done a swap. Is it possible to do with never doing a swap befor? Since its the same motor it would be bolt off bolt on right? Someone pleas point me in the right direction!!
