the h22 is a hard engine to fit and is costly because of all the parts you need. a b18c5 would be the way to go, but it will cost a lot also, but a much easier swap to do.

h22........once its in and running its still cheaper than a type r swap, makes more power and has a broader power band. but for the cost of either you can build your si engine and turbo it then run circles around the h22 and c5 assuming you do the work yourself.

thread from the dead man, and a b18c5 type r is the same size and mounts as a b16 or gsr, so there would be no custom fab work.
