my search won't work on here so anyway, since I can't get the power out of my motor staying na, it looks like I will have to do a motor swap again. I don't want b series it to expensive, so I have been looking at the bisimoto d series to h series adapter plate and putting in a h22.

My question is has anyone on here done that befor?? I don't want to turbo the zc. I have already had a hatch with a turboed zc and a lsvtec turbo both motors were fast but the lsvtec didn't like being turboed and I couldn't get them to run right. with my car now with itb's it's alot more fun na plus I have power when I step on the gas with no turbo lag. Coments are welcome thanks guys.

Since when is a H-Series swap cheaper than a B-Series? The running issues could be solved with a good tune. There are a lot of options out there, I am sure more people will chime in.

it's cheaper since I already have all the d series parts all I need is the h22 long block and to do some wiring. If I was to swap a gsr or type R motor I will be wasting time and money when I can do the h22 cheaper and get more power out of it. Trust me I have done my research on how much this stuff would be. All I want to know is like ground clearence issues or hood issues( I can work around that)

i am doing an h2b in a friends car as we speak. ground clearance is not an issue as it sits just as high as a b-series swap. hood clearance requires several spacers. once again, this is the quartersports h2b kit. not the bisimoto kit. im sure there wont be that many differences tho.

DOHC DX on here had an H2B in his EK, maybe he'll see this and tell you more about it... H22's have a good power-for-the-dollar ratio, but if you get it properly tuned I'm sure you could build a turbo zc that would be faster (and probably cheaper...)

This isn't a flame, but you shouldn't have had your hopes up coming here for info. It was worth a shot, and you might get some information, but you came to a board dedicated to the D series of engines and you're asking about H-swapping. It's gonna be slim pickings! :D

Have you tried honda-tech.com? Seems thats where all the people go that abandon thier D for Bs, Hs, or Ks (Oh My).

I'm not saying turbo's are bad there just bad for me, as I wrote up top I hae had another zc and lsvtec and both were turboed I could'nt get them to run right to much maintanenceand more stuff to worry about. turbo's are not for me they don't work right when I have them. On the other hand na has been the way so far I always have the most fun na with all of them. I love my zc but for what power I want it's just not possible to get there with it.

I posted on this site because there might have been some that have done it befor since everyone is d series. I'm not totaly abadoning my motor I'm selling it to my bro at that I will still have to take care of it. like I said I love my little motor but I just need more power

The guy asked about the H2D setup b/c he's curious about it. I dont see why ppl are talking to him about his turbo setups. If he chooses to go n/a then leave it at that.

What chasis are u using?
In the 88-95 chasis u dont have to cut your strut tower for a F/H (dohc).

If u check honda-tech there's a guy who did this hybrid in a 96-00 civic. He had to cut some of his strut tower to make clearance for the timing belt. And there's alot of grinding to the block to allow the axle to move freely. U also have to make your own driver mount bracket. And u need some type of slave cylinder thing that Bisi sells if this is for a hydro tranny. U need to space your hood or get a cowl hood with the (dohc) F/H motors.

All in all i think the kit is nice. It would be good to get shorter gears for this setup. And also get a lsd if u dont have 1 already.
