    ppl do buy the h22a its just a personal opinion what ppl like more. and the b series drops in with stock mounts the h22a does not also on some cars you have to cut to get the h22a to fit

    Yeah, by the time you purchase a mount kit and make the proper modifications to fit an H22 into a Civic you'll probably spend as much if not a little more money than you would on a B-series swap. The H22 is also slightly heavier than a typical B-series engine, but it's nothing that can't be fixed with after-market springs (which should be on your list of parts to buy anyway if you're to the point of doing motor swaps)...

    beleive me man, the h22 swap in the eg is really NOT hard at all, it took me 3 days with minimal wiring mods and about 20 minutes of cutting and grinding, the only thing that gave me a problem was the shifter and shift linkage.....
