I would stay away from the H22...I am assuming you have an LS Integra...upgrade to a GSR or Type-R motor, or put a VTEC head on your LS bottom end...supposed to be indestructible...my buddy has a 89 CRX with a turbo'd LS/VTEC pushing over 20 psi...his bottom end is completey redone, though. Most of the mounts and other things, PS,AC, etc. will be in the same place in both cars, making everything easier(i.e. no hose extensions etc)
Have you ever REALLY thought about the whole H22 swap thing? All the extra work that would have to be done? Everything doesn't just snap together...I could list them, but it is a long list. There are simple things like the LS radiator won't support the H22, the oil and fuel pressure is much different in both vehicles--need to change your systems, the motor mounts are way off and expensive.....etc...what tranny are you planning on using? I have heard that using the H22 6 speed will put the shifter back about 8 in form where it is now...uncomfortable...
I don't want to discourage you, but you should stick to the B series engines---just make everythig easier.
