Default What would you need for an H22 swap on a Integra GSR?

I have a 1994 Integra GSR

Im looking to do a swap on my teggy. I want to do a prelude h22 swap. Does it bolt up nicely or do i need something else?

Honestly, the H22 is a very good motor, but rather than spend the money and time on a swap, I think you would be better off finding some performance parts for the b18 that is in your car. The b18 is also a very good motor, and I'm sure that putting an h22 in an integra isnt an easy task. The b18 is also lighter. For the same cost (and amount of work) for a swap, you could probably get aftermarket cams, intake manifold, intake, headers, and exhaust. You would probably end up with a relatively close end result power wise, but your car would be a bit lighter and you wouldnt have to strip another prelude of its motor.

you rather put that money into the gsr motor...the gsr is like what 170-190hp...and the h22 is around 200...but the cost of the h22 and the motor mounts would be close to 4gs into the the gsr would give you mor hp then the h22 and would still be more reliable then the h22....but if your set on the h22...its best to get a h2b kit to utilize the gsr tranny that you already have...and then youll need the after market motormounts for the h22 swap...and then everything should be a plug and play after that...

it will if you get the right mount, good ones not those cheap ebay crap

get these mounts

you will have to mod the area where the shifter goes, that means cutting and welding

If you don't know what to do you should go to a good shop, because it's not a drop in engine

Personally I think you're better off with the GSR motor
