    personnaly dnt get the a4 get a jdm h22a ... you can get a complete changeover kit from hmotosonline for 2400
    http://www.hmotorsonline.com/shop/sc2000search.cgi?what=page&item=30017
    alll you need after that is a mount kit (depends wat your prefence) the hasport kit cost 600 ,,, the inovative kit cost 400,,, imo i go hasport better qualtiy and free upgrades on urethan
    then u can buy used axles or pick up a hasport axles kit for ef h series for 400

    if your doing yourself your looking at 3400-3600 then from the hmotoronline complete changeover kit your gonna have parts left over if you sell u make 100-300 dollars back (it bring stock motor mounts stock axles altenator)
    would not take to a shop becuase there only 2 thing that have 2 be welded (one mount and shifter box) good thing bout hasport mount is that it bolt up to where the battery tray goes then you spot weld around it... and it not that much ..... if you can do a b swap in a ef you can do a h swap in an ef

    right now i doing a jdm h22a swap in my rhd ef hatch

    you should look more into a b series swap.
    decent power,
    lighter,
    wont hurt the cornering abilities of the car, i have heard from people that the weight of the h series swap kills cornering.
    and most of all, the b series swap is easier, cheaper, and parts to swap it are easier to come by.
    dont cheap out and buy ebay brand stuff though, learned that the hard way on my first swap.

    hm. good luck with that. look in junkyards, ebay, and keep an eye out in the for sale section for part outs.
    but, do not underestimate how much of a pain in the ass doing one of those harnesses is.

    sell the h22 blocks, and it will help cover the cost of the b series swap.

    If you want fun and power stick with your H22. Explicitspeedperformance.net has everything you need to get it mounted and relocate the alternator, use your clutch cable, and they have traction bars that come with the kit. It is a pain in the ass to fit, and you need to weld the tranny mount, but with their kit, a H22 will fit without hood issues. Dont listen to anyone who says that a H22 will afftect handling, b/c it weighs about 60lbs more than a b and with a decent suspension setup you can minimize any problems, or just kick your buddy out of the car. I have done this swap with a H23 vtec, out of a euro accord, and i have yet to find an N/A b that could keep up, even ls/vtec's cant keep up. Be different, keep your H, if you need help or advice email me importlove@hotmail.com
