If you have the h series motor you may experence small handling problems. Also you have to get the motor mount that will let you drop it in. You will need axels from i think a 91 teg and a half shaft from a 91 accord (not exactly sure on that). You will have to get you shift linkages fabricated. To my knoledge there ins't a company that makes them yet. Also you won't be able to have A/C but up in cananda i don't think that will be a problem. You will want to get stiffer shocks and a little wider wheels (about 215mm across) just to plant the power. That is a big motor for your little car.
THe B series motor drops right in. It shouldn't take you longer than a day to put it in. They both have their pros and cons.
