F22C1 in an CB7?

Could it be done without selling my first born?

2005 Engine, tranny, drivetrain, all available to me. Would make my sweet Accordia a rear wheel drive, S2000 powered sedan!

Thoughts? Thanks.

You could do it, it will cost alot though.
However I don't think selling your kid is a good idea.

Depends on how much your first born is worth. And i thought it was F20C...

No one has made a RWD CB Accord, yet. There's a RWD 80s Accord hatch running around, but i think its an f22a or f22b motor.

There is, however, a RWD civic hatch with an s2k motor in it. Now that is sweet.

Anything could be done if you put the right time and amount of money into it but i don't think this is a worthwhile project

Would the major changes be to my floor? Do you think the engine would fit?

The F20C is smaller. I think that could have been a deciding factor. But, I'm a noob, so.

Thanks for the opinion, but what makes you think that? Where would the "worth" be placed in the term worthwhile? Like value after? Or performance? Or driving enjoyment (in a cb7)?

Sorry, no link, but yeah, it has the entire front end. The whole car is being parted out (roll over)

It's around... someone posted it years ago. It's all tubbed out (the V8 one) so it's pretty lame, IMO. Not really an Accord anymore.

Someone in CA has an F20C in a CB9, but he's not a member here. One of our members saw the car. It's like a Bigfoot sighting!



To make your car RWD, you'd need to find a way to mount the engine, COMPLETELY modify the firewall and dashboard, cut a driveshaft tunnel, relocate the gas tank, and find a way to make the rear wheels spin (which would probably entail retrofitting the S2000's rear suspension).

Can it be done? Yes. You might not have to sell your firstborn... but you might need to rent the kid out for a few years to cover the cost!


It depends on who you know, and what you can do yourself. If you're creative, patient, meticulous, and have a firm grasp on things mechanical... AND you can weld competently, or know someone that can... then it's doable. The more you can do yourself, the less it will cost you. Since you posted this thread, something tells me you're limited in your abilities.



I HAVE heard of the F20C/F22C being mounted longitudinally, and running FWD cars.

the ap2 motor is an f22c1 in the us, its a stroked out version of the f20c, so it has a little more torque but a lower redline

bull shit, this may be the most worthwhile project i've heard of in a while! it will be a ton of work, and would require a lot more to make it streetable, but you should definately do it. however, you said yourself that you are a noob, so this may not be that great of an idea.

like deeve said, i've seen the f20c mounted sideways (k tranny maybe?) and used in a FWD car. if you have the skills, the tools, and access to the motor, i say go ahead with it. dont do this to your only car though...

I wouldn't bother with an FWD F20C though... for the money it would take, you could do a hell of a lot more with a K series, or even the F22.

Thanks for that valuable paragraph: I can get all the parts necessary from the donor car, including the suspension. And, indeed you are correct: I am super limited in my ability to do this with my own hands. However, I am not as limited in my abilities to work hard and make the money to pay for someone else's hands - good friends at that, so discounted rates.

Yeah, I'm all noob'd up here. But, I've just started this project, and placed the emphasis on going the distance and making it special. I was all set to go with the Euro R engine and tranny, but I found out from a friend that this S2000 is soon to be parted out. So, I wondered if it was doable. I'd much rather RWD F22C1 than a FWD Euro R. But, if I am to go FWD, I'd just stick with the Euro R idea.

All in all, thanks for all your feedback. It definitely goes far towards making the decision.

I've been searching all afternoon and can't find the pics.

I did find a RWD V8 prelude though - http://www.honda-tech.com/showthread.php?t=1645997

it ALL depends on not just what parts you have available but also what skills you have. This isn't something for a beginner welder/fabricator...maybe mid level...you'll have to be pretty damn good really

I would HEAVILY research the rwd 80's already mentioned, he's a member here actually...while you can't copy/mimic exactly what he did, his experience would give you some ideas and some sorts of heads up of what you're in for.

I think folks are saying it isn't worth while because for the money you would spend, you could have a much more reliable rwd car, with more power, and that would be safer...cb7's aren't that safe really in wrecks...too old of a design...all around more bang for your buck/time.

But if this is something you just want to do get on it! It's your task, we'll hang around for the ride

Cool Cater, but I don't want to be sticking a non-Honda engine in my car. When all is said and done, I'd like it to be a Honda powered CB7, otherwise, I coulda just bought something new.

Plus, where are you gonna find the parts for the Cater lol

I've been reading through that thread. I dunno if I can stomach putting my car through that looks too painful. Geez.
