So this project has been sometime in the making. The car been in the family for the last 5 years, about 1-2 years ago the motor blew up while driving. At the time we could not find a reasonably price replacement motor. We did entertain the idea of rebuilding the motor, but upon closer inspection we noticed it had created a window in the block............

We toss around the idea of swapping in a bunch of different mazda motors at first. No matter what we look into, the idea of throwing a honda motor kept coming up. At first we contemplated going K series, and at one point even had acquired a full k24 swap which we end up parting out when we notice the motor had jump timing and a piston had kiss a valve.

Looking around the garage we had enough parts laying around to put together a F/h2b. From that moment on we spend a few months ironing out some of the details before any of the real work began.

The motor:
F23 block
K20a3 rods (K20a2 rods will not fit, fuck you internet myth)
K20a2 piston
H22 head
Hiprofile oil block off pins
k20a2 intake manifold
DYI balance shaft delete
Dyi plateless setup
b18c trans

Anyways onto some pic's!

Test fitting the motor


The original engine harness that got cut out.


Strapping the motor down. At this point we need to move the car to my home garage for the fab work.

She looks good with a quick wash after sitting for so long.

More mock up


Fab up a new engine bracket.


My approach to building this car has been to treat it like a ek civic. I modified a set of avid steel mounts.




Axle were easier then I could have ever wish for. The other ends are the original MSP and the rest of the axle is oem b-series.


Rear mount needed to be moved over, nothing some 1/4" steel cant solve.


All done

Did you ever get the rats nest of wires loomed out?
Just about sorted out, but its all open for the time being in the event we need to track something down.

Fired her up on a oem honda ecy, 3 cel. 2 were for o2's, and 1 for ELD which we should have sorted out thanks to the Beave!
