    if you buy a mount kit from a REPUTABLE manufacturer that shouldn't be a problem at all- I don't think that guys for Hasport would put their name on a set of mounts that bounced the motor off the firewall everytie you stepped on the gas

    that's what I'm saying- I mean anyone who is having trouble with their motor knocking off the firewall either A) did something very wrong or B)Bought mounts from a bullshit company that unsuccessfully copied Hasport

    you're not driving a topfuel dragster bro- it's just an h22a- don't worry about it- just do the swap

    Tempest Raciing in Waldorf, Maryland did a H22a swap in a 92 vx and he has nothing but great things to say about it. It took them less then a week to complete. He used the Hasport mounting kit.

    yes, there is a such thing as too much power for a streetable FWD honda, but and n/a h22 isn't going to do it. The swap is pretty much fundamental by now, all the parts are readily available, and people pretty much have all the kinks smoothed out.

    The biggest problem is the adverse handling.
