    These are just temporary.
    Sunday I'll have the other seat and the harness bar in, then headliner, and install my steering wheel and quick release and the interior will be done until after I get the motor built.

    Ok, so I discussed me buying my buddy's motor with him today since he had second thoughts on just giving it to me, If I help him pull it and haul the shell to the junkyard, I can have the motor for 200 bucks.
    Not bad for a JDM h22a with ALL the parts. So... I've changed my plans for the lude.. I'm still going to make it show worthy, but not to the extent of what I originally planned. I'll still be stripping the interior and repainting the whole thing when I
    Do the outside of the car, still gonna put a cage in it and remove the back seats, fuel cell and battery in the trunk, get some Stätus seats and call it good inside. Motor will be a naturally aspirated h22a. K20 skunk2 intake manifold, skunk2 b series 68mm throttle body (not going ITBs). Trying to find a nice header, might get in touch with AFI about making me one. They just released some n/a manifolds for the b series and they're showing good flow over stock and plus they look amazing.
    All new pistons, rods, valve train, and all the good stuff like before, except I'll be shooting for a high comp ratio now and won't be throwin a turbo on it. Gonna shoot for 250 wheel, with the setup I have in mind and a good tune, should be plausible.
    I'll wait and boost the s2k to 650 once I finish the prelude.

    Not too big of a fan of suede on seats, but when it's tied in with the panels it looks really good. Coming together nicely Jay. I'm jealous. I can't wait for Sarah to make $1200 a month to my roughly a grand a month from Enterprise and the National Guard...

    Pulling my JDM h22a this weekend and then I'll go buy an engine stand from harbor freight, and start building it in my kitchen... Hahahaha.
    Tear it down and clean it, repaint the block silver after it gets back from the machine shop, thinking about powder coating the head black? Dunno, lemme know what you think about that.
    Gonna go with a black bay, competition orange valve cover and radiator hoses, and the exterior of the car will be S2000 Grand Prix White.

    Weekend project, finished in less than 3 hours.

    I wanted to post the video, but I couldn't figure it out due to me being drunk as hell right now, so you just get this..


    That's the donor car getting lifted on a forklift, and moved to the shop.


    Lifted!!! hahahaha. SO professional.


    there she is, already has all of the wiring harness detached and all the hoses and vacuum lines removed, so it was an easy job.


    JDM AS FUUUUU*K
    haha I had no plans of doing anything JDM with this build, but the opportunity presented itself, and I'm taking advantage of it.

    Just got these in today, The shop I'm doing the work at is a classic hotrod shop. And they
    STRICTLY work on hotrods, so I was gettin made fun of the whole time I was pulling this motor.







    The previous owner had the car literally 2 inches off the ground.. so some shit got all ferked up.....




    But we got it out in less than 3 hours, I mean.. we cut the strut bars, and everything with a sawzaw but still... we got it out..




    Clean as hell.. I mean.. dirty oil, but I was expecting waaaaaaay more caked on oil considering it was a JDM crate motor...

    Are these pictures showing up larger than 400x400 on your guy's screen?
    I resized them but they still show up huge and cut off half the picture.

    Thanks, it's pretty dirty but I sprayed it down with brake cleaner and once I pull the head off and take the cams and valves and everything out ill run it through the dishwasher and it'll look pristine, worked pretty good with my other head.
    Talked with my machine shop guy and ill be getting the block honed, decked, and bored out, along with all my head work in about 2 weeks. Then it's just buying all my parts, body work and paint and drop the motor, tune and ill be done.

    sounds like a good plan but you make it all sound so easy for all of us who can't get anything done at this point lol.

    Yeah Jay, i agree with Dennis. That was WAY too easy. Almost like you had a whole crew to do all that work. What's the difference between your H22A and the JDM one? Come to think of it, i wonder if there really is a difference between the JDM 4G63t and the USDM 4G63t....

    Not sure to be honest. the a4 is an open deck and the h22a could be a closed deck, won't know until I pull the head off cuz I refuse to look something like that up. Rather find out that type of info hands on when I pull it apart. Other than that, subtle differences. Pretty sure they're the same up output.
    I didn't buy the motor because it was Jdm.. I bought it because it was a complete h22 vtec swap for 200 bucks hahah.
    I'm pretty excited. I'm just not looking forward to running the brake lines, as I've never dabbled in A/N Lines before.

    And it wasn't a whole crew, just me and one other guy when it came to dropping the motor. We just used the shop owner to operate the forklift haha.

    When dealing with engines the JDM version is usually a better platform because they don't have as many restrictions over there on emission and performance. The JDM engines might have more HP or something slightly different. My JDM D15B was never made for US spec and was the best engine to go with at the time read here ----> http://asia.vtec.net/article/d15b/

    Well as far as an h series goes.. It all depends on what you want to do with it. If you're going naturally aspirated an h22a or a4 is your best choice. If you're boosting, a closed deck h23a1 block is probably your best choice.
    Pretty sure the h222a4 type s motor in my garage is the same horsepower output as my new h22a from Japan. But I guess Wikipedia could tell me for sure haha.

    looking on the Honda Automotive database it says that the H22A is pushing 187/217 HP and the H22A4 is at 195/200 HP. Not sure why it is labeled with a / but those are the numbers posted. Looks like the H22A7 is a good one at 200/220 HP and came from the EDM 1998-2002 Accord Type-R.

    That's the one for the Japanese 5th gen, mine's out of the JDM 4th gen, 197 horses and 161.5 ft pounds of torque.
    Either way it'll be pushin more than that when I'm done and there won't be a single stock internal so stock output is somewhat irrelevant.
    But yeah for a stock motor the a7 is a beast.
    Puts base model k20's to shame.
