    ok well i have a friend who can get a h22 motor an tranny for cheap and he has a 90 intgera with a bad knock an something wrong with the tranny . waht he was wondering is if anyone has done this swap and knows wat hes going to need to doo parts and labour wise he is going to take the winter to do it cus its parked for the winter and well as far as i can tell or from wat i have read is he needs to buy aftermarket mounts and he wud still have to cut the passenger side mount and relocate it and he wud need a accord shift linkage he would need custom axles and a custom rad (i was thinking a half rad with a slim profile fan)and he wud need a ecu that supports vtec so if anyone can clarify everything that i just said and tell me what else he will need and wat else wud go into this swap labour wise that would be greatly appreciated thnx

    There is a lot of checking and double checking and labor to go into this, i bought my motor mount kit from explicitspeedperformance.net. The kit was great and it came with all the hardware you need. The clutch cable conversion for the hydro tranny, alt. relocation bracked and a traction bar which goes in place of your front crossmember and gives plenty of room for your headers. You dont need an aftermarket rad. i am using a full size integra one, but i did get a slim fan. The wiring is easy as its pretty much the same as a b series except that you have to lengthen the alt wires to reach the front, everything else should reach as is. I got my axles from Raxles.com, he is a lot cheaper than driveshaftshop, and the quality is outstanding. There will be a lot of swearing and pulling the motor in and out, its just the nature of an H series in an early civic or teg. For the money and power that i have, i LOVE it, the torque and power is amazing. If you have any other questions feel free to ask importlove@hotmail.com

    The alt. sits on the front of an H series instead of the back like a B or D series. The relocation kit just allows it to fit in the tighter bay of the civic and integra, and allows you to mount it higher or lower depending on which kit you prefer. The traction bar replaces your front crossmember, and bolts in place of it, AND where the tow hooks are, dont worry they have built in tow hooks attached. It sits almost underneath the rad support, and allows for greater clearance for the headers, while improving traction. The radius rods attach to your lower control arms and you can manually tension them to eliminate wheel hop, and they work very well. I really like the one from explicitspeedperformance.net that i have. You should look into their stuff, its great quality, and even if you dont buy from them, they can give you a lot more info than i can, and are always willing to help out. I can try and get some pictures if you guys would like, just let me know.

    I will get you pics when i can get outside and get some for you. The ESP kit is a great deal and will help with a lot of the hardware. If you guys can weld, then that will help as the tranny mount for the car is a weld in mount. Its really not any more expensive then buying a B series and doing that swap. Speaking of mustangs, my buddy is in the process of putting in a 512 in his 68 mustang lol. its gonna be nuts.

    Its gonna be a weekend warrior, it will see more street than strip, so i dont know what he will run on the street, but im pretty sure he has a set of slicks for it already. As he puts it, its gonna be a "fun" car, lol.
