    hey guys im new here and to honda performance and honda swapping... but here is what i have


    i have a 91 civic SI Hatch and a 96 accord EX with the SOHC F22B engine.

    im going to turn the 91 hatch into a full drag car, as my tiburon gets me around where i need to go anyway. with the help of my brother, we are thinking about pulling out the f22 and forgeing the motor and putting it, with a turbo, into a gutted trailer queen hatch. will the motor fit into the hatch if im not going to need the PS, alternator, or A/C? remember, its going to be full race, trailered to and from a racetrack.

    any help/info/resources would be great.


    and also, is there a head i can put on the f22 to make it DOHC? just wondering.

    You would use the exact same procedure as you would when swapping an H22 into an EF hatch. You'll need mounts from somewhere like Hasport, and it's not exactly a drop-it-in and bolt-it-up type of swap.

    People do sometimes put H23 or H22 heads onto F22 blocks, but I'm not sure on what all is necessary to do so.

    Here ya go, detailed directions with a complete parts list: http://www.hasport.com/tech/installs/efh1.pdf

    Like I said, you'll need to buy Hasport's mounts, or fabricate some of your own. Also, looks like hood clearance will be an issue, so you'll probably have to put spacers in or trim the underside of the hood. If it's going to be a track only car though, it probably won't matter.

    Kinda, yeah. The F and H-Series are related. They bolt in the same way and you can swap transmissions between the two. You can even swap heads between them with some modification.
