    This really isn't that easy of a swap. Do you already have the engine? If not, I would go with something else, like a D-series or B-series motor...

    first you're going to have to do an MPFI conversion, then you will need mounts, I'm not sure if you'll need specific F22 mounts or H22 ones will work.

    hit up Hasport for more info on mounts/shift linkage.

    when you get it done that should be a pretty sweet set up with a lot of future power potential.

    I had a JDM F22B in a 92 prelude i had and it was a non vtec dohc. Was quick i guess compared to others but my hatch would blow it away.

    You need to read up on this more.

    Mounts are sold as a kit from hasport, the transmission side has to be welded in. The shifter assembly from the prelude or accord, I think a 94-97 accord works best has to be installed in the civic. Unlike a civic and integra the accords and preludes have shifter cables that run the transmission. The civic's floor/shift console has to be cut out, the shifter assembly has to be install to the floor. Do a MPFI swap, then maybe a OBD1 conversion, or possibly use a ECU from a 90-92 prelude to run the engine off of. One year had a 2.1ltr dohc and that ecu with a fuel regulator would possibly run the F22 sohc fairly well. youre gonna have to do a Hydraulic transmission setup to, or do a H/F 2 B series transmission swap. Like brutal said above this isnt a swap for a first timer but it can be done. Not as easily as a EG or EK though, the age of the EF makes swappin H/F series a bit harder and more complex. keep reading, youll figure it out...

    yea i agree for a first swap this isnt the one for you, likely (not saying you will but...) you will prolly get into it get discouraged and give up on it or take forever and a day to finish it.

    here is a link to the mount kit at hasport.com for a price of $750 Hasport Billet Mounts
    and here is a link to the instructions for the swap http://hasport.com/tech/installs/efh1.pdf

    oh yea and here is this also from the instructions page at hasport...

    WARNING: The H series engines are much taller than the stock D-series. To eliminate ground clearance issues the engine was raised and will not work with a stock hood. An SiR style hood or SiR front end conversion will need to be used. Even with the taller SiR hood you may still need to use spacers or cut away some inner structure on the hood.

    so there ya go even more money to spend...

    not a good first swap.

    i would listen to eveyone else and sell the f22 and go b series. way easier for the same hp goal plus there is a lot more aftermarket stuff if you plan to build the car up in the future.

    Yes, you will need to use the Accord's ECU or a chipped ECU with a base map for the F22 motor...

    Cool contribution bro. Next time check the date before you post on a thread though. This conversation was from 2009. I'm sure the OP probably made a decision about his car a long time ago...
