    b16 is usually much easier to swap in, the h22 requires modification to the engine bay if I remember right.

    The h22 has a lot more power then a b16 but is a heavier which will affect handling and requires weld in mounts. If you weld in the new mounts for an H22 swap you will only be able to put in f and h series engins (excluding the f20c). If you plan on using this car on regular roads deffinatly go with the b16. Low torque but good horsepower and it will be a lot easier to steer especialy when going through tight corners or parking lots, plus it's cheaper. Either way you go best of luck to you.

    when you put a b16 in a dx, you need mounts from hasport or enjo. enjo is cheaper. 90-93 integra axles, 95 gsr radiator hose, your stock bottom hose will work, but its tight. you can buy a throttle cable bracket from PlaceRacing, they also will make a nice shiny harness, to fit the swap. you can buy shift linkage from enjo or hasport, or you can take 99-00 civic linkage and shorten it, thats what i did. its not to expensive its about 3000.00 real simple swap
