    hellow all,

    I am considering doing a project with my ek 97 hatch, and putting in:

    Used JDM BB8 Prelude H22A VTiR Black V-TEC Front Cut with TipTronic Auto Gearbox and ECU

    http://www.japanautos.com.au/Honda/Prelude/DSCF1070.jpg

    from what i can find i believe it will fit perfectly?.. could anyone just double check me on this. I believe it would be a good drag car ^^ once its done but right now only considering my options

    Not worth it, If you only plan to drag then go for it but its a lot more involved than a typical B swap, its more similar to a K swap in terms of labor.

    Auto gearbox? I wouldn't do that, if you're going to ever do an H-swap use a manual B-series gearbox (of course you'd have to do the H2B conversion)
    And yes, drag racing is the only time I would think of an H-swap.

    You are speaking about PupazzoR :D

    Who have the ITR gearbox on the H22?

    Can you say to me what you think about the Gator axles after installation?

    like blinx said its not worth it unless you going to use it pourly for drag K20 for the win. if you doing the swap try to get the right mounts there are 3 dirrent ones you can get from ha sport.

    Thing is, those H-series can be really cheap...Way cheaper than a B18c.

    Have a search on honda tech about h2b you'll find alot of answers there.
    this forum doesnt have much infor regarding h2b tranmission configs really.
    as far as i know there is a conversion kit or something.

    But yea, Honda Tech will have more info :secret:

    Honestly, I think the H-series is a little overrated. I've beaten one in an EG with my EK and a nearly stock B16A with a GS-R tranny at the time. Three runs and I got them all. I know that's just one experience, but I'm just saying. They are overrated, but I'm not saying they're not good. Just don't go with the hype and think that the displacement will fix anything. I wish you luck with your swap and build. :D
