Dont buy from tiger, my friend has bought 2 h22's from them now. The first one had bad piston rings, and the second one had a bad rod bearing. If your gonna buy a motor get it from a good dealer.

Hmotorsonline.com

I bought my b20 from there and the motor is solid. Ran several bottles of nitrous on it and boosted on 10psi. Still runs like a champ after 2 years.

It just depends on if your smart. I've seen hmo motors blows in the first couple weeks aswell.. If you dont do regular maintence to your jdm motor its junk,, thats why EVERYONE recomends when you get a 90's motor from a jdm junkyard its a VERY GOOD IDEA to put a new water pump, oil pump, inspect the timing belt and tensioner..If you dont do this I promise you its going to cause problems, either near future or down the road... Im not sayn there isnt jdm motors out there that run strong, that still have stock pumps on them but it doesnt hurt to replace that stuff before you swap it into a car!!!!!

Dont do it in my opinion. I just went through 2 6g72 twin turbo engines for my 3000gt vr4. Both were bad. First looked like it was in a fire, turbos were filled with oil and all pulleys and internals were rusted over. Second had almost no compression in all six cylinders, valves were hung up and now im having issues getting my money back for it.
