Ok what was the point of this reply? What did you accomplish? He's new and he's here to learn, and you're just discouraging him, but some people are like that and there's nothing I can do.

Anyway, first off it's an H22, not B22.

H22 is the DOHC VTEC motor from the Prelude.
B16 came from the Del Sol VTEC and 99-00 Civic SI.
B18B is the DOHC non VTEC motor from the Integra LS.
B18C1 is from the Inetgra GSR but I dont want to get into all the motors.

There are plenty of pros and cons from both motors.
The H22 weighs about 80 pounds more than the B-series motors, so weight is an issue, which will effect handling if you auto-cross or take turns at high speeds. But it makes much more torque than the others. You would have to upgrade suspension and brakes, but you'll have a killer.

The B-series motors are failry simple to drop in. They make good power and somewhat easy to work on. Take advantage of the search function at the top right of the screen.

I hope that helps you.
