Found a Manual K22 in an accord aerodeck at the local scrappy, few Q's!

any ideas on how much its roughly worth?
would i be able to hump it into my Mb3/D15z8?
Would i need gearbox too etc?
how would it affect insurance?

Real n00b when it comes to engine swaps!

Que Nicky Edd and Paul! :cool:

i havent got any specifics for you mate im a general advice sort of guy not a honda specific,
but anything with in reason will fit anywhere so i would say as long as you grab ecu and wiring loom and also get a wiring diagram its a project that could be done
its not going to be easy thou nothing ever is when your swapping lumps etc theres always something to upset the job
sorry i couldnt be more help.

Not sure what its worth really, is it the VTEC one? Probably £1000 to £1500 depending on how good the engine is. I would want to see it running before I payed any money for it.

You COULD, however it is going to cost you a lot of money and it will be a lot of work, as you said the car if your DD. Expect it to be off the road for a few weeks at least. It certianly isn't a whip the old one out drop the new one in job.

You would need the gearbox yes.

Yes, I don't know what your paying at the moment or how old you are ETC but expect it to go up by a lot!

I don't want to piss on your bonfire or anything! But it will be a very difficult swap. You would be better off buying the whole car and doing it like that.

A B series swap would be a lot easier. Or you could boost a D (what I did) and I am just finding out just how expensive thats going to be ;)
