Default I have a 89 Honda prelude Si with FI auto but the trans is out for the third time.?

A buddy of mine sold me his 89 prelude Si Carb manual Trans. My engine from old prelude is in great condition and I was wondering if I could swap engines. They are the same engine size but the difference is my FI and the other is Carb. Would the engine swap? I open to suggestions.

If the engines are both from a 3rd generation Prelude (1988-1991) then you can swap them for sure. You'll have to swap the electronics from the FI engine in as well, but it is possible.If I were you, I would post this swap on a Prelude specific forum such as and get some help there. You're going to need to make sure you have all the necesarry parts to complete the swap. Chances are, you won't have any problems as long as you have the wiring, ECU, etc from the old prelude.
