    In my opinion a very well built LS/Vtec will be much more cost effective as far as producing power than the H22. The H22 motor is very heavy for that chassis. I have too many horror stories with H22's and people crashing their civics with them because the car is too heavy. You will have a weight advantage over the H22 and with a few more bucks you could really make that LS/Vtec kick ass. Go with the hybrid, you wont have the torque off the bat of an H22 but it will be much more user friendly on your Chassis rather than a LS/VTEC. Put money into and you will be able to beat an H22

    personally id say fuck both of them
    get a GSR swap it will cost less than an LS/VTEC and you get OEM quality... the LS/VTEC is a great setup if built properly but its really not cost effective unless you already have an LS

    and the H22 in a civic / integra chasis just sucks ass (IMO)

    Well from the two I would pick the b series, both make power and obviously the 2.2 will make more tq out of the box but I think the lsvtec will be enough. What are your plans with this motor???
