Default what is needed to swap an H22 into an EK?

right off the back im new to the Honda world. im a DSMer. im all about the eclipse's, but i recently got a 96 Civic hatch. it was at a good price ($3,500) so i jumped on the opportunity. so i started looking into possible swaps and decided id go with the H22. now i havent looked to into it yet casue i jsut got the car 2 days ago so im still a "virgen" you can say, to the honda world. all i wanted to know is wut is exactly needed to do the swap. example axles, mounts, ecu, etc.... and i also wanted to know if i could do it my self with like another frined in my garage ona weekend. i have all the tools i need. i have air tools too so i have the tools i jsut wanted to know if theres any major or even minor fabrications i.e welding and things of that sort. i know you guys have great info out there so i hope someone can help me out.

You're a n00b, but since you've come to the wonderful world of H, I won't flame you for not using the search button.
You'll need the motor, tranny, probably the same harness off of the motor, ECU, axles, and a mount kit (Hasport e.g.), shift linkage, along with various other things like wiring, since none of the hatches came with VTEC prewired
This can be done in a weekend, with the right tools and a friend. Also you'll need this http://www.helminc.com/helm/pr...64LL4
This will definitely help you and everybody in here is going to tell you to get one anyway, since it's very comprehensive and a huge help. Good luck

I recently saw a post where EK22Tim mentioned some tech issues with this swap. Maybe you could IM him.

if ur planning on boosting, an h22 isnt such a good idea, ive heard a lot of h22s heads cracking under pressure. so if u ARE planning on boosting id lean towards a gs-r engine (b18c1)
