I recently got the oppertunity to purchase a 90 LS for $700. I was wondering if there were any way for an H22A swap in it? Who makes the mounts? What all would I need for this swap besides the motor? Thanks

the h22 swap has been talked about a LOT here. try running a search and read on.

there are basically two sides of the story. the h22 is pretty much the largest displacement 4 cyl. honda engine you can find. its big displacement makes it a good fit for straight-line performance. however, because of the big displacement, the engine weighs more than b18s. this, in turn, ruins the weight distribution of the car when swapped into a teg which is very nose heavy to begin with. after spending all the money in the engine swap, you've got yourself an ill-handling car that understeers a lot. then you've got these people that say you can mod your suspension to compensate the additional weight of the engine. my view on that is - sure. with enough money, anything is possible. but i don't think i'd want to spend thousands of dollars after spending thousands of dollars swapping in an engine.

whatever you want to do with your car, as always, is up to you. if i were you, i'd stay away from the h22 swap. i don't have that kind of money anyway. if i really had to get another engine, i'd just get a relatively new b18b which is drastically cheaper than b18c1 or b18c5. with the money that's leftover, i'd boost it. but then, that's just me. again, it's all up to you. your car. your money.

actually the b18c5 is the most expensive honda engine i've seen...my friend got a 96 h22a w/ 45k mi. for $1,800 and most ITR motors are between $4k and $5k

do a search on any search engine for "the ultimate honda engine swap guide" it will help you out i'm sure. and if you want a website that'll give u a good price on the engine send me a private message.

The H22A weighs 75lbs more then the B18, that is basically a small child on your hood. You have to take the AC out, thats 30lbs right there, and if you happen to have a CF hood thats another 30lbs.

stock hood weighs 40lbs right? cf is 11lbs. anyways.. You also can take out the power steering. relocate the battery. there are many things you can do to fix the weight problem.

I think the F20C is the most expensive honda engine. I am running a H22A in my G2. GReddyGSR94 if swap this engine into your into G3 you will lose your A/C and possibly your power steering. A smaller steering wheel will make up for the lost of power steering. But why would you wanna swap a H22A when your already have a B18C?
