    Yeah, it's been done several times. I would prefer to just go straight H22 for ease of build though. Depends on parts you have available.

    yeah, the few extra hp probably isn't worth the hassle unless you already have a pile of parts lying around to do it.

    I have the H22 head and the entire h23 Engine, except from the head, I bought it.

    I need to know which mounts have to change and how to adapt the h23 in my engine bay. And i cannot find pics about the steps

    you'll need to buy a mount kit from a place like hasport.com that matches your civic cassis code (which you didn't give us). There's different ones for each generation.

    the cable based shift linkage is the tricky part-- you'll need interior cutting and stuff to get the cables through

    Oh yeah i forgot it, I have EH chassis. I entered the Hasport page, and look for the EG mounts for H-series engines. Does the kit have all the mounts that I would need to adapt the h23 in the engine bay?

    yup, that should be all the mounts.

    but as above, you'll also need the shift cable system and the axels are a hybrid mix of a couple pieces
