    i myself have done the evoloution h2b swap in my dc2 and i am happy with the kit.
    A few advantages with the evo kit is that it sits lower than the quartersports so i didnt have to shim my hood i just had to cut a little of the webbing out and now it closes fine another good thing is that the give you a new half shaft carrier not some big bulky mounting bracket like the quartersports drag kit i also didn't have to machine the crank or buy an alternator bracket just a few small hits with a hammer and its fine it dont even look dented. now keep in mind this is in a dc2 c the ek civic will have to have the crank pulley machined and extensive beating for the alternator without the bracket. i also did the balance shaft removal. in a dc2 there is no need to leave out the crank spacer they give you with the kit but with a eg the clearance for the crank is closer so if you leave out the steel crank pulley spacer its moves the crank closer to the engine about a half an inch keep in mind you will have to grind on the alternator bracket about a half an inch and shim the oppisite side to get the belt to match up with the crank . that should solve all the mounting problems now for the wiring if you are OBD-1 you can use any obd-1 vtec harness you just have to extend a few things like the alternator wiring and iac. now the best ecu (not including the use of hondata of course) is a chipped p-28 for the reason it doesn't check for egr and there will be no IAB worries just run straight vacumn to the secondaries and no need to hook up the egr valve with this setup either.;) you also have to get creative on the upper radiator hose its not hard but do some thinking.

    for you people doing the balance shaft removal yourself you can press in the plugs in the oil pump with any press yourself but i recommend taking the block girdle (which can be a pain to remove) to a machine shop if you do not have access to a micrometer or diocaliper the tolerances need to be right for the girdle everything else is straightfoward a tip though would be to take out the oil sending unit so you can collect the metal shavings that collect from drilling and tapping the oil journal in the block

    thats all i can really think of for now oh and a heads up Tiger Japanese Auto Parts LTD - Home has h22's for 750 dollars i got mine for 899 shipped non tranny or ecu or wiring harness but i had everything else one other thing if you can help it GET A LSD cause first and second like to spin (ALOT) somethign you guys might be interested in also bone stock h22a balance shafts removed gsr y80 open diff tranny stock clutch header and exhaust ran a 8.7 in the 1/8 mile

    sorry for the spelling and grammer errors i did this very fast let me kno if i left anything out and any corrections with the eg and ek civics my advice on those are from my friends that put the *quartersports drag kit* in there civics eg and ek not the evoloution kit like i used in my dc2

    for you haters i know everything i said about the setup with the DC2 is correct i went through the whole thing in one day and got it in and running fine with the excact steps i gave you guys
