what are you looking to do drag? then the h22 would be great. a lil drag and a lil track? then probly the b18. depends on what its used for. personal preference b18.

the easier of the 2 swaps is the b series.
although the h series would be a badass swap that i'de do. its going to be a whooooolllle lot more difficult.

if you want a general idea aobut what its goin to cost to do a swap. go to http://hasport.com/tech/hasport_swaps.htmand that'll answer majority of the questoins you have

the h22 isnt that bad with an h2b tranny kit. at least with that you dont have to hack up your car as much, but its still going to be expensive. The H is a beast even in the much bigger Prelude

yea im thinking about just going with the b18 b/c i dont plan on doing any drag or track just something faster and more power! maybe a lil street racing! cuz after the swap i plan on getting a turbo! i found a b18 motor 67k,with the tranny ecu and stock mounts for $2200 is that a good deAL ?

average price from what i've seen on ebay and websites? I would go with the b18. is that 2200 with shipping or 2200 plus shipping? Also check the source of the engine, junkyard, import from japan, ect. make sure the place u buy it from has some reliablity and maybe even a warranty. Hate to pay that much and all u got was a 500lb lemon. anyway good luck and post some pics
