if i can find a link, i'll let you konw what the deal. good luck on your swap though, if you can get that accomplished, it would be a monster considering how light ef's are, peace!

Well a h22 in a eg handles like shit just imagine how bad a crx will! My friend from drt has a ef with a h22 turbo in it and he was forced to turn it to a drag car since he had to take turns doing 5 mph. To each there own!

Um... is it me or is everyone of you baggering me a fucking moron? Your saying a eg with a h22 doesn't handle like shit? Your saying in a ef it won't make it worse? I don't care what you do to a ef with a h22 it won't handle period. My ef with a built b18c handles like shit so please it's not the driver. I'm not talking about straight line but turns. What I'm saying is that it won't be beneficial to drop a h22 into a ef unless it's a drag car! Also if you had the type of money to get that motor in a ef, just get a b16 turbo and call it a day!
