Hey, I'm getting a '97 cx hatch, and I wan t to drap a H22 in it. (I currently have a '93 si hatch /w a b18c and a dragIII kit,all self-installed) I'm planning on taking off the kit and putting it on my h22-civic... I figure a new exhaust manifold and some piping and I'll be set.)
to the question: I remember before the board was reset, there was a sticky in here about the H22 swap... I think it was for a 5thgen, but I'm not sure (was it your post, jacobyb?... can't remember who's it was). Anyway, I need all the info on this swap that I can get (6th gen cx /w h22). Is it basically the same as a 5thgen h22 swap once I do the obdI conversion? The only mount kit I can find is the hcp one (ek-22). I want to do the OBDI conversion.... and the wiring harness where the ecu hooks up is already butchered to heel (form the previoud owner), so I was hoping I could just locate some obdI plugs and solder them in place of the obdII ones. Will the wiring harness (as long as I get a LHD one) plug right into the firewall-harness? What harness should I use (being as the chepest prices I can find on a swap are the jdm ones.... **********.com I hear is good... thoughts on them?)
Can you tell me about which ecu to run? I've heard that you'll have to hook up some resistor box with certiain ecu's. How about a good mount kit? Axles (does it depend on the mount kit for some reason)? Hooking up the shift linkage assembly (it's a cable linkage and a hydro tranny, right?)
Any info on this swap at all would be appreciated. I know you guys didn't fail me whan I was doing by b18c swap, so now its time to move up!
