I've never thought of the F22 transmission working with an F20C. I've actually thought about the swap a lot, but without blocks and transmissions, I really can't figure out what would mate up with what. I know someone's swapped an F20C into an EK and kept it fwd, but he won't reveal what transmission he used. From the way the engine sits in the engine bay, I think he used a k-series transmission (maybe with an adapter plate and crank spacers like the H2B swap).

Do a search on Honda-Tech for it... I've seen someone mention it but I don't remember what he said about the transmission. I remember he told us though.

just looked at the thread...why did he have to put it in backwards? Wouldn't it fit just like any other four cylinder engine?

It's not backwards. It's oriented like a K-series, which is what the other generation S2000's came with (though they of course were turned sideways in the S2000, since it's RWD). Look at any K-series besides the one on the S2K and you'll see what i'm talking about.

P.S. If it were backwards, the wheels would spin the wrong way

I know what he's talking about; the valve cover is facing the wrong way due to the way the engine is set up from the factory. If you look at the F20 in an S2k, the valve cover can be read right-side up when you're standing by the passenger-side wheel. Due to the way the fwd transmission has to mount, the engine has to be rotated so it looks backwards. It's simply because the F20C was designed with the longitudinal mounting it has in the S2k in mind when it came to aesthetics.

As far as money goes, I'm going to say not worth it. For the cost of the swap you could probably afford a K20A and spend a good bit of money on it.
