    HEY EVERYONE IM NEW HERE, LOOKIN FOWARD TO CHATIN WITH ALL OF YOU.
    NOW LIKE THE TITLE SAYS, i have a 94ex and not too much money,
    a b16 is cheap and drops right in my car, easy.
    an h22 is an amazing motor and is around the same price as the b16 but with more power
    and it will run low 14's i hope may b 13's with some mods.
    however i have a friend with the exact same car (almost litterally) with an h22 and he said he dont care if i copy him, but i dont know what to do.

    As an the owner of an H22 that was easily swapped into my car, i would like to say go with the B16. If i could do a turbo B16 in my lude i would.

    Might just be cause im tired of the lip that im gettin from my car.

    Just go nonVtec and get yourself a B20 with a Si tranny and you should be happy with it.

    so many choices,
    b16a2(the one you would swap in) and h22a1 are very different from each other.
    if money is tight go with the b16, if it is really tight stick a B18b1 in there. if you don't really need dohc try mini me swap, that way you don't need a new trans and everything.

    hey thanks everyone, a b20 with an si tranny i never thought of that..
    how hard is it to do this swap, and how difficult is it to put on a b16 head?

    well, i was like you a few months before, either h22 or b16 and i went with the b16a sir-ii (JDM)

    why? because i've never done a swap before and also, it was a drop in swap, very simple, didn't take us long, and us, meaning, me and 2 of my friends (who've never done swaps or even really work with cars), and with the help of members of this forum, they got me through it easily

    well, i got the b16 with lsd, felt a lil better than my friends teg gsr, and it's pretty quick, not super fast, but enough passing power and pretty good for just a little boost here and there
    and it's simple to install

    Here's a comparison:
    My 95 Ex coupe+b16 = 15.3 (intake/falkens)
    Friend's 95 Ex coupe+h22 = 14.4 (intake/exhaust/17 inch heavy ass rims and shit tires)

    i dont think so...but they make conversion plates for your tranny if you HAVE to go that way.

    most swaps come with tranny and axels though.

    no, d series axles will not work with a b series transmission. and dont waste ur money on a h22, yes u may see people with them, but there are more people with b series swaps that u can get info and parts from. also b16 is the safest motor to rev to 8k unlike the h22. i have a built b16 right now and it scoots. i would eat an h22 prelude in it.

    H22 tops out on power at 7800 RPMs. Whoever told you you it wasnt safe to rev to 8k on an H22 was full of it.

    Damn now this is why I love my nonVtec setup! My 92 Honda Civic VX Hatchback ran a 14.34 @ 92.37 MPH with 14in M/T slicks. After I get my built head on I am hoping for high 13s all motor.
