Yes, this has been asked a million times before.


H22 swap is the same as the F-Series swap.

You will need the following parts:

1. My H22 swap kit
2. My conversion harness(unless you know how to wire it up yourself)
3. My traction bar and skid bar

The rest is in the parts list that I created years ago, in the FAQ stickie above - H22 Swap Checklist - Parts to get...

Ok so update I have the 2.0 head but the block met the wrong end of a rod. Can I get a different block setup and put my head on it?

Your only option if you are not willing to swap is to find another B20a5 or A and swap it out.
No other Honda blocks bolt up to the a5 or the B21a1's.

Here is a comparison photo of the Newer B-Series too the bastard b.

B20b/z and B18 on the left and B20a5/B21a1 on the right.

As you can clearly see they are not even close.

Will a b16 engine bolt to my transmission?
Again, no other Honda motors will bolt up that includes wiring harness and transmissions and shift linkage.

A swap is complete swap, nothing from the bastard b connects or works with any other Honda platform.
We are the bastards of Honda.

If you want to swap you need my swap kits and harness conversion and traction bars.
