    plain and simple, the gsr motor is the best swap for your car. Its a straight forward swap and some wiring depending on what year gsr you have. The h22 is just one big headache and will be a lot of wiring to deal with. Save yourself the headache and go with the gsr....

    Dude, I HAVE the GSR in a hatch and its a great motor. Decent power, but not all that.

    If I had to do it again, I think I would go with the H22 swap. Just because it sucks when other B-series guys are neck and neck with you all the time. I just wanted people to say "Day-om" but with the GSR, they say "Oh, cool"

    Pro's about H22 are...

    More weight on the font wheels for better launches.
    More torque than GSR.
    More HB than GSR.

    The only really bad thing about the H22 is the understear. Its not really an issue for me cause I take it easy with my car all the time....unless I'm racing.

    Overall, the H22 in a HB would smoke most all B-Series swaps, part for part.

    gsr is a great motor if you like to turn
    h22 is a great motor if you live your life 1/4 mile at a time.
