Buy hasport engine mounts for H22 into EG you will save a lot of trouble cutting and welding. Also apart from the brakes you will need new suspension cause H22 is heavy engine. You will need a gearshft linkage, ECU and the engine and dashboard harness

Not worth the hassle imo. EG's come with B series as standard, so a B18C6 swap (which is basically the same power) would be a lot less of a headache. Plus B series engines have loaaads more parts available than H.

That is true but B18C6 or JDM B18C costs three or four times more than H22 especially if it is a full swap and that is a lot of money

well tarque yer which is what you want with a little car make it nippy around citys and country roads bhp is for straight lines!!!
what are you talking about FFS!!
BHP is not the be all and end all of it , torque is what turns wheels nothing more nothing less ,
More torque = faster and more powerful car .

To be honest high torque is ideal if you need to tow caravans.

Hope this helps,

I was joking... well, being unhelpful anyway, hence the sarcastic "hope this helps"
