Well pick up your Super Street Magazines Friends, and turn to page 234 and take a look at the honda optional equipment question of the month. A guy emailed them about swaping a h22a into his 91 accord Ex and they told him all the wrong stuff like he needed to weld new mounts, and it was hard to install. Wel look what I told them back.....

You weren't supposed to see that Jerome. I'm the new editor here and I want
nothing more than to be able to give you the best magazine each month. That
means the best cars, events, interviews and TECH all delivered with the
trademark Super Street style.

We make mistakes, just like everyone else and technical innacurracies irk me to
no end. We get tons of emails and letters each day and we try to respond to as
many as we can. And I just want you to know that it is not our intention to
misinform anyone and if we do we will do our best to make it right.

And thank you for keeping us on our toes.

You guys think I should ask for something since I corrected them hehe like a hat.

That's for everything...tranny,axles,starter, blah blah blah, he might just be referring to JUST the motor. It might be possible to get JUST the motor for around 1500 or so. The tranny is around 600+, plus all the other parts.
