    What are the specific reliablility problems, if any, with H-series engines when compared with b-series?

    i was wondering this myself




    i think the H series swaps are done less because they are a little more difficult then the typical B series swap.. if thats what you're trying to ask

    b series rev higher in stock form. thats the only thing i can think about. h22 swaps are also more hard to come by than b-series. there isn't a whole lot of reliability problems that i know of.

    I was searching around the forum, curious about h22 swap info and the issue of reliablity of the h22 kept coming up in the threads, so I wanted to know if it was true or not.

    Both are great motors. But the H is much larger and heavier, making it a more difficult swap. You cant lose with either.

    Im thinking about buying a hatch and doing an h22 swap in it for a project.
    My first idea was to put and h22 into my ek hatch, but that kinda got thrown out the window for an LS because I found a really good deal on one.

    from what i hear the h series cylinder walls can warp if youve been running them hard all day. so if you race all day i wouldnt get one. a b series seems to be a lot better anyways. i would turbo a non vtec b18b1 before i build a GSR or type R anyday too!
