    if you plainning on putting a h22 in I would look for some really heavy springs for up front, I dont think the coilovers would hold the abuse of that heavy motor

    well i dont think it will need to be that much stiffer.. I mean the H series is not that much heavier than a B series..

    The H22 is not that much heavier than the bseries motors. I think the H22 is too heavy to swap it just a myth or rumor. Sure it weights more its a bigger motor, but not much more. You should be able to run any normal coilovers for the swap. I would go with buddyclub....

    the h22 will sit farther towards the front of the car, thous creating under-steer, also throwing off the weight distribution, this doesn't occur in b-series swaps, this is why the h22 is heavier and stronger springs are required
