    H22 into a del sol is not reccommended, you will need to fabricate shit to make the mounts fit into the engine bay. Yes, it's bad-ass, but not worth it in my opinion. You should be happy with the B16 with some minor mods.

    just buy the mounts, its relatively simple except for having to re-do the suspension/upgrade it. my friend who is completely new to the swap thing, had an extra lude engine laying around from one of his cars and decided to drop the h22 in his car. he's an amateur but everything went well and the car is sick

    If your in to drag racing, do it. The H22 is a bad ass engine and great for drag.

    If your into autoX, roadracing, or turning, go with a b series.

    It's been done, plenty of times. If done right it can be rewarding. For draggin I guess the h22a is best if you don't want to open the motor up internally. If you plan to rebuild and beef up the inside then I would really go with a resleeved B. The b series have more aftermarket support, they weigh less, and is literally a direct drop in. Plus it is the more natural motor for the car since they actaully came from the factory with B series motors and not H's.

    not to mention Halfshafts, dont forget them, I mean seriously, Civic Halfshafts withstanding an H22..... no. Plus the motor will align a lil differently with the half shafts so they will be prone to break, go with a b18 block, b16 head. less trouble and just as bad.
