    It's not easy. You'll spend 1/4 of the time and money just swapping in a DOHC engine.

    h22a man, its a great engine. takes a little effort to make it work, but once its in there u will be flying. if u arent good at wiring, get the obd1 version so all u have to do is change the injectors distributor and ecu.

    The only one even worth mentioning is the F22B1, but even then you'll only see an increase of a few horses to the wheels, along with a few foot-pounds of torque.
