A lot of electronics, wiring, fuel tank and pump and assorted relays and wires. Truth be told, you would be MUCH better off buying a 2.0Si or Si Prelude and then selling your S model. The swap is far too involved for so little increase in performance (35hp increase). But if you still want to do it, you can look into it at prelude3g dot com under 'engine' tab. - Prelude owner
