Are you sure this is what you want to do? H engines swaps are good for straight line drag racing but your car will be front heavy and handling will suffer badly- even with a suspension kit. Also, if you like A/C, forget it. It won't fit in the engine bay with an H-series engine. If none of this concerns you, you will need the engine, tranny, ECU, axles, engine/tranny mounts (Hasport sells them for this swap). Good luck.

By the way, you won't need a VTEC harness since that engine isn't VTEC. That's the engine used in the 1992-1996 non-VTEC Prelude. The VTEC engine is the H22.

You will need:

Stickers for parts companies of parts you don't own

A 3 foot tall carbon fiber wing on the trunk of your FWD econobox

A loud fart-can exhaust

Cut springs, or at least a stock suspension on wheels more expensive than the car

A mis-matched body kit comprised of 3 different body kits, none of them the same color.

Cylinder walls on the H series are too thin too hold boost.
