Which Del Sol model? Base? S? Si? or VTEC?

Any D or B series will fit with proper mounts. Depending on your model type, minimal to zero wiring will be required.

Easiest and cheapest would be a D swap...don't need anything other than the motor. Assuming you are going from a D15B7 to a D16Z6 (SOHC VTEC) all you will need to do is wire in VTEC.

B swaps are just as easy, but will require different engine mounts.

H22's are good. Some modifications will be necessary such as using the cable shift linkage, mounts extend some wires, etc. Most eliminate the AC and PS, but, its not 100% an issue. I'd also recommend a change in your suspension setup as the H series are heavier than a B or a D series.
