Oh also

I know that the cylinder walls in the engine are weak but is there a way to make them stronger. Like from time to time I like shifting at redline but I don't want to blow my engine after driving a bit hard

a) IF ANYTHING im going for more of a drag car than a circuit car so i d rather have more weight on my front end

b) it balances out my car because i have subs in my trunk

c) its 10 000 dollars for a proper swap verses 4000

d) cheaper to mod (yes i know b series is even cheaper)

If you just plan on driving an stock H22, don't worry about the walls. Also, if you get a 95 or older H22, I believe it's open deck (err vice versa) and has much stronger walls.

As for mounts.. HCP served me well enough, had them on my EG H22 and there was quite a bit of vibration, but I really believe that's unavoidable..

He's already swapped in a B20, and is working on a B20/Vtec.
