Thanks bro! I guess I have to get my hands dirty now and swap his head out! What do you think we are gonna need besides the head to swap this head with an H22? This way If he gets the H23 head I can just forget about the VTEC parts! Thanks again!
Well, he's already VTEC, so you won't have to worry about much. You'll need an ECU, cuz you don't want VTEC kicking at 2800 rpm. You'll have to do some rewiring for the ECU. You'll need a new head gasket for sure, as well as a timing belt. As for other parts....since you've got the head off, you have the option of installing new bottom end parts. How many miles are on the stock engine? You probably should at least get him new rings, if nothing else.
We are already planning on rebuilding the bottom end cause it has 116,000 miles on it and plus I thing the crank walked over on him towards the flywheel! The crank pulley wont go completely on! I really think it walked on him! What ecu's would work?
Do you already have the H22 head? Or are you going to have to purchase it? Unless you have a killer deal on just a head, get the whole motor and swap it. You get stronger internals with the H22 than the F22.

Including wiring and etc? This would be completely new to me since I don't have a clue how to do a head swap. Is it just the new cam, gears, and vtec wiring? I think I would definately need instructions on this. Hold that deal, though. Where are you at?
