    Wow..... Don't want to be a dick here, but if you don't know what you're talking about, kindly stfu.
    First off as far as the weight issue is concerned, I'm going to trust Hasport and HondaTuning over a random guy on a forum that only weighed the bare block and guesstimated the rest.

    That being said, I wouldn't go with the H22 swap. Unfortunately it's really not worth it. For the money and work you'd be much better off doing a K series swap. It would be lighter, more reliable, and easier to produce more power than the H22. The B series swap is the standard and is popular for a reason. It's cheaper, easier, parts are readily available, there's tons of swap and build information available, and it fits properly in the chassis.

    Some issues with H series engines;
    The H22 transmissions are notoriously bad for grinding.
    The swap kits will put the axles on an angle which make them prone to wear.
    If you do an H2B kit (h22 engine, and B series tranny) the hood won't clear the engine.
    You'll have to use hood spacers to which leaves a weird gap by the windshield.
    The H22a4 is notorious for oil consumption.
    Be prepared to pay twice as much for every single part on that engine compared to a B series.
    The floor has to be cut to make room for the shifter linkage and shifter cables.
    Say good bye to power steering because there is no room for the pump unless you make or find some custom bracket.
    The H22 is the heaviest fourbanger you can dump under the hood.

    I swapped an H22a1 into an EG civic coupe years ago. It really is a good engine, makes a good amount of power stock, and has a nice wide and torquey powerband. But with the money and time I spent on just the swap and maintenance items, I could have built a really nice B series motor that would outperform the H22. So if you really want to do an H swap, go nuts. I'll try to help you out where I can. But I wouldn't recommend it.

    tldr; Been there, done that, wouldn't do it again.

    I know very little about Hondas, but I know not to bother with the H22.
