    H22A would be the best swap hands down. None of the b-series motors will work.
    You can only go with F22 and H22 and H22 is a lot better.

    Peace*

    A B-series will fit in there, but it would be like dropping a small-block Chevy engine into a cement truck and trying to pull it around.

    Drop in an H23 if you want to boost later on down the line, or drop in an H22 if you want to stay n/a. An H23 engine should cost you around $1500 shipped, while an H22 will probably be around $2000 shipped. Figure an extra $200-$300 for parts related to the swap. You should be able to do an H23 for under 2 grand total, and an H22 for under $2500.

    You can do either swap yourself, it's real easy. Check the reference section for crank hp numbers, and extrapolate from there.

    fairly simple, dohcvtec_accord helped me out on the motor mountings for my bro's H22A Type S swap. i was getting confused with the wiring for a couple of minutes, but got it down good. try to get the OBD1 H22, it's much easier to wire up. good lock

    I'm pretty good at fooling people into thinking that I know what I'm talking about. :lol:

    Now that you've done your brother's swap, people will be saying
