    You won't need a whole lot to do the swap. You could buy a JDM h22 and ecu on ebay, I did. Just keep in mind that you don't want to get screwed, pay attention to the little details. Your wiring harness should be perfect. You might have to run a few wires for VTEC, but it's not that bad. Your tranny would work fine too. Another option would be to ask about a head swap on here. I don't know much about them, but I've heard it works well. I paid $911 for my H22 on ebay, and 165 for the ecu. With shipping, those two cost me about $1450 to my door. That was a decent deal......Good luck

    That'll be a pretty damn easy swap. As was said, you'll need to run a few VTEC wires. Mounts, axles, etc should all be reusable.

    Easy swap, plus you should be able to get about $700-$1000 for your old H23A1 and P14ECU, assuming everything is in good shape.

    This means less $$$ out of pocket, which is always a good thing.
