Hey guys,

I think it's finally time to start the process for a motor AND transmission swap for my '91 Prelude Si. The car currently has a B21A1 with an automatic transmission. I'm looking to go for a H22 swapped from a 92-95 Prelude with a 5-speed manual transmission. I'm in the process of researching and sourcing out my parts, so that I can collect them and make the actual swap process as smooth as possible. I'm planning on taking the project to be done at a shop, and let them handle the rest. Side question: would this be the same if I went for a F20B motor swap?

I'm following a thread posted by Sean (1FunRyd): The Official H22 Swap thread by 1FunRyd - Honda Prelude Forum
I'm using it as a reference guide to have an idea of what essential parts I may need for the project to be successful. I would like some opinions, suggestions, and or advice on the parts that I gather or what to keep in mind. The purpose of this thread is for discussion on helping me (and maybe others) in the process of a swap project.

The motor mounts I’m looking to go for is the ones from Innovative: 88-91 PRELUDE CONVERSION ENGINE MOUNT KIT (H-Series / Manual)

What do you guys think about it? Just fine?

Also is this bracket necessary? H22 ALTERNATOR RE-LOCATOR
Stay away from the innovative products. They are terrible due to the fact that they do not sit the motor and transmission correctly in the engine bay.

Many have went with them due to they are cheaper than my kit but my kits fits the engine in correctly and allows for powersteering, the innovative does not.

The traction bar also has fitment issues, I know this because I fixed one innovative swap kit already and the first buyers of the kit and the traction bar kept calling me to help them fix innovative s issues.

Also to make things less costly for you, stay away from the F20b.
I used to be an advocate for it, but after researching and even witnessing the extra costs to get the motor to run correctly you end up losing in the end.

Just stick with a JDM H22a swap, you will not regret it.

Honestly you could not go wrong buying Dustin's lude.
$5k for a build that is worth way more and you are already ahead of the game.
