h22a in civic keeping auto tranny

i was wondering if it's possible to swap a h22a into a 2000 civic si and having the prelude auto tranny swapped in as well. I know many of you wil say search but most swaps are in regard to manual tranny swaps. I have a 2000 civic si and the engine seems to be failing so i was thinking of swapping an engine but retaining the auto tranny and what other suitable motors would be good for a swap but are fairly reliable but put out more power than my d16y8. thx

B18B or C - Integra LS or GSR

B16 - don't think the sir has auto, but i think it can be connected to an auto tranny?

H22 is wicked nice with good power and torque, why not just get the auto tranny from the H22 or H23 engine?

well i've asked that too . my parents can't drive stick >.< and they aren't really willing to, which pisses me off sometimes and i just need a little more power with a newer engine because this one is kinda dying. i was lookign for something that can be swapped fairly cheap, under 3000 altogether would be ncie and a h22 /w auto tranny seems pretty reasonably priced. i was just wondering if anyone knows a place that can do a swap with a better engine than my d16 for under 3000 altogether.

Forget about the swap. Sometime's some basic maintenence can do wonder's......Your car is only 5 yr's old!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a 91 with 240,000km's on it and it run's mint. If you dont' know or haven't maintaned it recently you should get a shop to look at it.
And if the engine seems like its failing maybe you should take better care of it. ie. Let it warm up on cold day's and DON'T GUN IT WHEN ITS COLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!that s really bad for your motor. Routinely check all fluid's and don't drive the **** out of it all the time. Not saying you do but some people are very hard on there car's. And just be thankfull you dont' have a VW. If something is wrong with it it won't cost a fortune.

unless you redline your car 7 times a day, since they day you bought it, it shouldn't be dieing....most of us have cars a lot older then yours and engines in very good condition...

i just want more power, that's why i'm swapping

well the engine isn't dying i suppose but the power is garbage, its not wut i was used to. i compression tested it today and its compression is at the level that its supposed to be. i guess i just want a h22 with auto tranny for the power.

If the car's only 5 years old, and the only thing you're unhappy about is the lack of power, then why bother going through all the trouble of swapping in an engine?

Why don't you just sell your Civic and buy a Prelude. It'll be easier to insure, and probably would end up costing less in the long run.

Your other option: buy a 98-02 Accord coupe and swap in the H22. That's a very common swap and probably would be easier than trying to cram the motor into a Civic and upsetting the great handling characteristics of the car.

Parent's can't drive stick?....Hmmm...Something's not right here. Im guessing its there car. In that case why pay $4000 and swap a motor into mommy and daddy's ride. Your messing around with someone else's daily driver Buy your own car. Get an EF. There cheap and nice and Light. And then you can get a 5spd and not waste your time with some Automatic H22. I dont' care how much power it has its still an Auto civic and it won't be very fun to drive. Swap's in EF's are dirt cheap. And You can probably pick up an EF with high Km's for very cheap.

I read about this in the papers allot, boy supes up mommys car and drives it into a pole street raceing killing the 5 passengers on board

Ask your mom first if she needs 200 hp in a civic with crazy oversteer... I gurentee she will not like the driving charecteristics of her h22 civic

Do a tuneup or if your really insistant, replace the engine with a y8 or b16

I dont think it would be possible to swap the h22 with an auto tranny because the tranny has tiptronic and all that crap.

B20 with auto tranny
