    Well the motor and trans are about 3grand ur gonna need custom mounts that make the motor sit lower in the bay other wise hood won't close so that means u can't lower ur car as much or u can address the hood problem but it's gonna take a bit of work and money to do the swap ur probley lookin at 4 grand to complete the swap I'd just do a GSR swap before I'd do h series, probley better off doing h series in an eg, for the ef hatch ur gonna have to do hydro conversison cuz I don't think they have a cable trans for the h series, like I said it's gonna cost a bit, u could probley get a good gsr swap done for around 2g's

    I was thinking the same thing for my new crx. innovative makes mount kit which requires removal of trans mount and welding new mount forward a few inches. very simple if you have common sense and can weld.have a BFH handy as well. keep the motor high and cut out hood for clearance. a hood is cheaper than a blown motor. a cheap way of power is b20vtec then boost the hell out of it.hmotoronline has great prices on b20 and cable trans.

    i bought my H23A vtec for 1300 and have a total of 5000 into and including cost of my car. explicitspeedperformance.net makes whole kits for h22 ef's including a bracket for the cable clutch to hydro tranny, alt relocation kit, and traction bar, as well as the mounts. I have no hood issues, but yes you have to be careful how low you go with the car because you will smack the headers. For the money its a great swap and a monster of a car.

    It would be sweet for sure, but for the money/trouble you'd be better off doing a boosted B or D series. A D16A6 at 10 psi would probably easily beat a stock H22.

    I love the idea of a stock running, Honda reliable H22 swap, but by the time you're done cutting, welding, and hammering that engine into the car there will be very little Honda quality and reliability left. It's too bad the H series is so large externally, I'd love to have that power and torque in my little CRX.

    If you want to bring your 10psi D series and show me how much you will beat me by. And how do you figure that a stock D series running 10psi is more reliable than an H22 in a crx or civic. The only welding you have to do is for the tranny mount on the frame rail. Unless you have done the swap dont say that there is going to be very little honda quality and reliability left, you have no idea what you are talking about.

    I agree, too many B/D series, and i think the K series is over rated. Dont get me wrong i think they have great potential, but they are too much money for a swap. I have lost to only one K series and it had 10K dumped into the motor, i dont have that much in my whole swap including the car. Anyone who can build a K killer for less money has my respect. Good luck with it.
