    Smile Re: Turbo H22 3rd gen...

    Pioneer!?! Wow! Thanks but I don't think I deserve the title; Joe at Altech is the REAL PIONEER. It was only my persistence and determination to get it done, and to find the guy who could get it done, and get it done right (and the fact that Joe couldn't budge me when he tried to convince me to throw in the built-up A20A) that made this dream a reality.
    Thanks for all the praise, guys. I think it's really great that we can all come together and share our mutual love for 3rd gens cuz we all know it's not a car that gets a whole lot of respect. It's been a long journey, but...wait a sec...I think I'm starting to get a little emotional.
    BTW, Dane, that Euro Accord is killer!!! What the hell kind of front end is that? Those lights don't look like anything I've ever seen on a Japanese, Euro or NA 3rd gen front end conversion. Wait a sec...those are just eye brows, right? That looks fu*ckin' tight!!!

    just sign up for a photobucket account and they will let you host videos also. Congradulations on the swap that is clean and maybe we should move this to your other threads so we can quit thread jacking this one, LOL.

    Thanks, LM. I found another one called "Putfile". BTW, that ride of yours is tighter than a virgin. Awesome set up. I envy the condition of your body (car body, that is). Mine needs quite a bit of work. Here are the vids. Fu*kin' sucks that there's no sound. I don't know if it's the digi cam or what but I would have loved for you guys to here this baby roar after 5500 rpm. Not the best quality, but I hope y'all enjoy!!!

    i'd fab up a tubular front crossmember really quick. if you don't, you'll be busting your axles and differential regularly.

    Re: JDM H22A 89 Accord Se-i Sedan Swap Completed & Running!

    Hey, Vanilla Sky, very perceptive. Thanks, man. Any idea what something like that would cost to fab up?

    LM, I just went to your car domain site and was wondering - does Prothane make a complete bushing kit for our cars or did you have to piece it all together; I imagine that most of the bushings are interchangeable between different Hondas, but do they really offer a complete kit for a 3G? Thanks again.

    Re: JDM H22A 89 Accord Se-i Sedan Swap Completed & Running!

    Honestly, this is a VERY nice job!

    They sure look like Avid Civic mounts, no need for the front mount with those. I bet that it was one hell of a job to line up the engine in there like you said. Could you take a picture of the timing belt side mount?. I guess the frame bracket was made from a scratch too.

    Again, this thing is VERY nice.

    There will be a meet this summer in Toronto, it would be very nice if you could come (I plan to go too).

    For that speed limiter, you could just get the ECU chipped to get rid of it. I could do that for you if you want.

    Nopi they have alot of bushing items for our cars, just look around. BTW the rear bushing kit listed dosent work, so dont get that.

    Wow... I must say I'm damn impressed. Good to see someone actually get this done, and post pics. And a fellow Canadian at that.

    Videos dont work for me though.

    Thanks again to all you guys.
    Hey, Carot, you get the details on that meet, and I'm there in a heartbeat (no rhyme intended). Yeah, and about chippin' that ECU, I'd love to take you up on that offer. Thanks, man, I would really appreciate it. BTW, I included a pic of the driver's side mount in the pics I've posted earlier in this thread; if you want a better shot, angle, or close-up, let me know what you need to see and I'll get a pic for you, no prob.

    Re: JDM H22A 89 Accord Se-i Sedan Swap Completed & Running!

    i say this thread should be stickied as a momento and so we have somewhere to point all the future hopefulls who show up with their accord and h22 "all ready to be swapped in, just as soon as we get _________." and do you think you could get the fellow who did it to answer questions on occasion if we asked him? because i know there'll be no shortage of questions now that people see one running.

    you should post how much that cost. i'm betting somewhere in the region of $7500 US isn't too high.

    Re: JDM H22A 89 Accord Se-i Sedan Swap Completed & Running!

    ok, that makes me curious. what car was that mount kit made for? if it's something that's easily attainable and only takes a few hours to mod, it might be a worthwhile means of getting the h22 in.

    Wink Re: JDM H22A 89 Accord Se-i Sedan Swap Completed & Running!

    Well, I'll try to break down the costs for you guys, and this is all in Canadian $, as per my invoice.

    H22 Motor, Tranny, & ECU $2,500.00
    Mount Kit (Avid Racing) $500.00
    OBD1 - OBD0 Harness $250.00
    Modify Motor Mounts 10 HRS @ $75.00/HR = $750.00
    Modify Engine Harness 5 HRS @ $75.00/HR = $375.00
    Wiring 6 HRS @ $75.00/HR = $450.00
    Install Shifter 2 HRS @ $75.00/HR = $150.00
    Install Motor 5 HRS @ $75.00/HR = $375.00
    Re & Re Engine Compartment 5 HRS @ $75.00/HR = $375.00

    Sub-total $5,725.00
    GST 7.00% 400.75
    PST 8.00% 458.00

    Total $6,583.75

    Joe saved me the tax on labour, so I was only taxed for parts. So I actually paid $3,737.50 for parts (including taxes), and $2,475.00 for labor (not taxed), bringing it to a total of $6,212.50*.

    *This total does not include cost of the passenger side axle which was about $150.00 plus about 1 hour labour for custom fitment.

    I also had the engine bay restored and painted which cost me 800 bucks; the corners behind both shock towers, at the firewall, required new metal because they were rusting out. That doesn't include the 70 bucks for towing to the body shop, there and back, that Joe almost forgot to bill me for (damn it!).

    Also, keep in mind, the swap prompted me to replace any worn or old parts that would make the car unsafe, given the fact that the car (now almost 20 years old) would have to handle almost double the power of the A20A. I replaced 2 tie-rod ends, 1 front lower ball joint, the master cylinder and brake lines. Joe also suggested I replace the upper control arms on the front end, so I ordered Ingoll's camber kit (not installed yet) since my future plans will include lowering the car. And this is just the beginning of a project that will run deep in modifications to the suspension, brakes, fuel system, etc., and the engine itself. Once you're in this deep, there's no turning back; be prepared to compliment this monster swap with a never ending list of mods and upgrades to your vehicle!

    There you have it. I believe every god damn penny was worth it, and I'd do it all over again if I had to!

    For anyone currently working on this swap, having it done, or planning to attempt it, I wish you success and all the best...once completed (and running), you won't be sorry - TRUST ME!!!

    Peace

    VS, read the first post in this thread; they are Avid Racing mounts for a 92-95 Civic H22 swap. Keep in mind the brackets for the mounts were fabbed up from scratch.

    glad to see you got that H22 to work in the 3g . i might consider buying a friends H23 engine/tranny and getting a parts car to screw around with until i finally put my car under the knife, but like most people on here, chances are i wont due to plenty of reasons. congratulations on the swap your mechanic did though, and welcome to a flame free world where you can talk about your H22 3g. your one of the very few that will inspire alot of people here
