    :wtf2:

    Dude, you're doing something wrong.

    There are two x-members under the front. One runs side to side, the other front to back. The front to back crossmember bears no weight.

    You have two engine mounts, a transmission mount, and one thrust mount. A bracket holds the firewall side mount. The timing cover(crank) side of the engine has a mount to the chassis. The transmission mount goes to the chassis.

    This leaves the dogbone(thrust) mount between the engine and the radiator.

    Use your stock Accord mounts on the H22, bolt it in, done.

    There is no reason why it shouldn't fit. If it is the same cross member as the one that you took out, then the bolt pattern and distances would be the same.

    If something changed, then you did it.

    no you do not need to use a different x member. the h22a bolts in directly . just use your original x-member like tab said.

    Yes, you use your old cross member. You change the engine and the wiring harness, but everything else stays the same. I have a 92 Accord. Click my sig to see pictures.
