im not sure what you are going to need but i have heard these swaps are hard as hell to do. i know you will need the tranny, engine mounts, wiring harness, axles, shift linkage and im not sure what else. someone else will be able to help you out.

hasport motor mounts are a must, becuase the engine is going to shake your front end into the ground...

its a pretty basic swap, what you need depends on your car. what are you driving?

lmao a F22 over a H22 lol ok

for a H22 swap you need

engine
transmission
harness
ecu
H series/eg axles
H series/eg mounts
Prelude or Accord shifter assembly
A DOHC VTEC radiator

Civic's have rod style shifters while the lude has cable style shifters. You can also buy a H series to B series transmission adapter (search for H2B). It is not different than a B series swap other than you have to drill to holes in the firewall for the cable's from the shifter. You can do the complete swap for around $2500 and have ITR hp($4000+) with better tq than any B series(H22 is 161tq while the B series hang in the mid to low 130's on tq for the most part)
