    Putting the h22 into an eg will cost the same if not more then just buying the b18c.

    I thought the H22 would have a lot of under steer not over steer :blink:

    yeah it's understeer, if you make a car nose heavy it becomes further biased towards undesrsteer- Yes, there are springs that will help to subdue it, but when you put a motor that weighs 385lbs in a car that came with one that most likely weighed 200 (d15?) you're still going to have that dead mass in the front of the car- The shifter modification can be a pain in the ass too, since prelude tranny's use a cable shift mechanism and your civic uses rod shift linkage- the best thing to do is go read the pros and cons of an H22a swap

    B16a is the best bang for your buck ....... dollar per horse, per litre

    You can still kinda mess with people.............

    Besides, buddy of mine has the the H22 in his 97', parts are madly expensive !!
    research very well before buying.......

    You should consider going LS-Turbo. If you piece your own kit together and use proper fuel tuning, you will be faster than a B16 hatch.

    :werd:- for the amount of time, money and work you're going to have to put into the H22a swap you will not be THAT pleased with the results- just my 2 cents

    My friend has a 92 vx with a h22a swap, and he's more than pleased running high 13's with just exhaust and cold air intake. Sure the b16 and b18 can have high hp, but they lack low end torque. My 2 cents.
