    This might be a stupid question. Im planning to do engine swap to my lude when i have resources to do it. I want to swap my current f20a4 to a f20b bluetop so my question is this: does they share same engine mounts or do i have to fabricate new mounts or something? Thanks!

    I am looking to swap my block in my '93 Prelude. I'm looking to either go with either the: 2000 H23A DOHC VTECH Bluetop Long Block H22A Long Block or the F20B Long Block (Manual Version) I seem to notice more people going with the H22A but was wanting some more opinions and reasons why. Thanks all!
