Default Honda Accord engine swap?

I have a 1996 accord with the F22B2 engine in it, and I'm looking to upgrade to the F22B1. What I need to know is will the b1 bolt up to my current trans. or will I need to swap that as well? Also, what other mods will I need to do to make this swap work properly? Thank you

When I worked on Hondas I did a couple of these swaps there are 2 things you need to know. One is you need the throttle body from the B1...if you look at the throttle body there is a cable that goes down to the transmission. Well the cam that that cable rides in doesn't move the cable enough and may cause the transmission to have a mushy shift which is not good...also keep in mind the the B1 transmission has 1 extra clutch in the transmission for 1st and 2nd to handle the slight increase in power and torque. I did about 4 swaps like that...all 4 came back within 10k miles with a bad transmission most people don't know about the extra clutches but if you ever rebuilt one there is a difference.
