Default H22 vs. B16A

I'm looking at picking up an H22 full swap from streetimports.com. They offer the H22 for the same price as the B16A. Does anyone have any experience with these guys? They seemed decent over the phone. Also, is there anything I need to be aware of in dropping an H22 into my 97 Civic EX? I'm getting engine, tranny, axles, ECM, motor mounts, with the kit. Is there anything else I need to make this beast fit?

youll need a harness and if its a cable tranny, most H22's are, youll need a shifter box from a prelude and cut out an area in the firewall for the cables to go through.

edit: and the h22a is a Bergillion times better than the B16 torqueless wonder.

So if you get an H22A/F20B with Hydro tranny you don't need to do all that trouble witht he shifter box and firewall?

You'll still have to cut out for the shifter box but, saves you trouble with the clutch pedal...
