dude...for your first swap...just go with the H22.

the F20B will be more of a pain in the ass for someone who hasnt ever swapped an engine.

Read up on the swaps in the "swaps" part of the forum.

deevergoatse. may have said something they shouldn't have...
since the h22 is more widely swapped, it would probably be easier to find info/parts for it.
so for your first swap, i believe you would be more pleased with the h22.

1000 cheaper than H??? Is that mean you getting F for free?

H is not that expensive you know

An F $1000 cheaper than an H? The F20B is a newer motor than most of the H22 swaps you're going to get cheap.

Sounds to me like you're looking at the SOHC F20B... which... well... sucks.

IMO, I would go with the H22.

I love mine. I'm pushing 200+ HP NA.

I would build the F rather than go with an H. course thats because im die hard single cam. The f20b vtec DOHC engine is very fun to drive and is a rev monster. But its not a very affordable engine. If your dead set on swapping go with the h22 Its a cheap and very easy swap to do.

For a swap, the H22A is the best bang for the buck. The F20B DOHC VTEC motor is good, but it is often more costly, requires an OBD2 to OBD1 conversion, and there are a few parts that aren't interchangable with the H22A (which means they aren't easy to find in the US).
Building the F22A is also a good idea. NA, the F22A has plenty of potential, but to reach H22 power levels, you're sacrificing a bit of drivability. Turbo, the F22A would ALWAYS be my choice.

How can you get an f for 1k cheaper then an h. I only paid 993 for my H22 shipped from canada to Arkansas. Shop around a bit before you jump on one. there are some good deals out there, you just have to find them. My motor came complete with dizzy and harness. Let me know if you want the contact info for the place I got mine.

Be VERY careful buying from Canada, though. The prices are better, but if you get a bad motor, you're pretty much out of luck. If the company won't step up and make it right, it's far too expensive to try to sue them... an international lawsuit isn't worth it for $1000. Many of the Canadian companies know this, and they will send bad motors to the US. Not all of them are shady, but the lower the price, the greater your chances are that they're junk. Figure, if you can get an H22 for $1000 shipped from another country, that company is STILL making enough profit on that motor to make it worth their while... How many companies are going to get H22s that cheap, and be able to ensure that they're running? They're probably grabbing them from boneyards in Japan (or worse, Australia... where the mileage is undoubtedly higher), HOPING that they're not trash, and then stuffing them in their warehouse. It costs money to pay someone to test each and every one...

Oh damn, i didn't evan think about that. what I was trying to say there are some cheaper motors out there you just have to look for them. I know of another company that the shop I work at just used that have pretty good prices. They evan include a compresion test. We got a TT V6 swap for a 300zx for 1800. It is a complete swap, I mean everything.
