    Hi, I'm new on the board. I was looking for some infos for my project (92-93 h22a civic) when I found this temple ;)

    It's ok for the motor (a couple of motor imports here in Montreal)
    I'm currently looking for the car and I was wondering if there is a better chassis to receive this motor.
    It seems to be the only thing never discussed about this swap :D
    I was thinking CX but since there is not a big weight difference with the others, I'm confused.
    I thought maybe a 4door will help the handling (i'm not planning to autox :p don't start this war again )

    Just want some opinions.

    And by the way, If you know a civic 92-93 for sale near Montréal, let me know please ;) I have the cash, just waiting for a deal.

    Thankx

    Simon

    with an h22, if you want a simple bolt on swap, get an accord. if you want a civic, you're going to need some mounts, HASports has gotten alot of recognition on this forum, look into them. good luck on your project.

    ovcrash, J-Spec Auto Sports seems to be cheap. I'll probably go with them. And i'll try to get the h22a 92-96. I'm looking for the 161lbs torque ;)

    ekPhred, thank you for the info. I'm gonna have the job done by a shop (i have no garage). I know it's not as simple and cheap as with an accord but I still want a civic.

    You want a 92-95 H22A. 96+ are OBD2.
