    wow, i havent heard of anyone tryin that yet. um i personally dont think it will because you will be going from a SOHC to a DOHC head, (but i have seen a DOHC on a SOHC before), but the thing that would throw me off would be that the F22 block is a 2.2 liter and the B18 is a 1.8 liter so im not sure, hopefully someone will have an answer soon.....good luck

    That won't work at all, not even close. The F/H-series heads are an inch or so longer than B-series heads, and I'm sure the bolt holes aren't gonna line up.

    Look towards an H23 head instead. You can get one for fairly cheap, it's bolt-on, and it will give you a few extra horses and dual cams to play around with.
