I believe and I've heard that you need to get a good firm front suspension.. H22 are heavier and good HP so the suspension needs be tightened up.. Again not sure so someone correct me if I'm wrong.. And I would personally boost

As far as an H22 in another chassis, the biggest problem I have with them is the axle angles are all wrong. That was one of the purposes behind the H2B setup. Use the B series transmission in its original location along with a standard B series mount and attach it to an H22. Keep the stock B shift linkage, basically, everything you need to do a B series in your chassis, but with an H22 powerplant.

As far as boosting an H22, if you want anything more than moderate power, you are either going to build a sleeved block or look at using Mahle Gold Series pistons in it. The H22 sleeves are made of a material called FRM. It is not really compatible with forged piston setups.

No, actually, going to the B-Series transmission has given greater flexibility to putting power to the ground between both all motor and turbocharged setups. There is also the aftermarket availability of gearcases and gearsets to hold substantial amounts of power. I personally was going to run a gsr trans for my boosted H2B setup that I abandoned. They also tend to put more power to the wheels through a B transmission than an H transmission. The H2B is just a proven setup. Current fastest is Reid Lund from Kaizenspeed having run into the 8.7x's at over 170 mph in an Outlaw class car.

I have turned my completely stock GSR transmission to 9200 RPM and have been able to change gears without a problem. You can make it turn 140+mph at the top of 4th depending on tire size and engine RPM. Whatever you are reading or hearing is incorrect. Stock GSR transmissions have run mid 9 second passes with many of them topping 150mph...in 4th gear. Neither Eric nor myself have reached the limit of the stock transmissions yet. I have almost 20mph I can go in 4th gear before I hit the limiter, and I trapped at 130mph.

Just so you know, there is a ton of work that needs to be done for an H2B setup. It is about as far from a drop and go swap as a K-series is, and maybe even further. I personally went with the QSD (QuarterSportsDrag) kit, and would purchase it again in a heartbeat. I do not like the EVO/Bisimoto kit. I don't like that you can't use standard B-series mounts, that you have to use theirs. I also don't like that they sacrificed axle angle to get the hood to close like stock. That is the whole point of doing the H2B, keeping the stock axle angle. If you do decide to go H2B and you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. I have done it (albeit for a short time), but I did all the hard work, and I know my way around pretty much anything Honda.

The wiring is pretty straight forward for your setup. Extend the alternator wiring and add VTEC wiring. Also have to do some work with the external ignition coil depending on your distributor. Other than that, not much comes to mind.
