I am so down for some info on the f20b swap in a 6th gen. I've been researching and info is fairly scarce, so please if you know anything I'd like to know as well.

H22 is cheaper and easier, that's for sure. The FRM sleeves will be able to handle low boost if that's your plan. Any boost higher than 6-8psi, you should probably do some internal work and at least get it re-sleeved at the least.

The f20b is the cheaper engine where i live, the complete swap (minus tranny) for an h22 is slightly over a grand, whereas the f20b is only around $700. And these prices are in Canadian $$$ from a reputable shop.

That's ridiculously cheap for both swaps... that includes everything?

That price includes everything except tranny, it comes with distributor, ac compressor, power steering pump, alternator, etc. i was quoted $1300 w/ installation for the f20b. For some reason ALL the shops around where i live seem so cheap compared to prices i see from American web sites, i dont know why. Plus, these engines are guarenteed under 50k km, and come with 90 day unlimited km warrenty. It's mostly the F and H sereis engines that are rediculously cheap around here, B and K series are considerably more. My friend told me at one point he saw an f20b on clearance from a shop around here for $500!
