Default H22 swap in 94 accord

This is my first post, my name is Danny, I have a 94 coupe with an f22b1 (stock), want to swap for an h22 with the minimum amount of work. which code is best? I heard it was the a1 since I don't think there was an h22b1, but I may be wrong. Any help would be awesome

Welcome to HAF.

The H swap is well documented - just be sure to take your time and plan everything before you start.

I personally would keep it stock and spend my time/money on the regular maint items - brakes, suspension, ect. The 5th gen with the F motor is a very well built car and will last a long time if you take care of the reg maint stuff.

I would keep it stock, unfortunately this motor wasn't well taken care of and is pretty worn out, if I'm going to swap it I'd rather have the dual cam

Well if that is the case an the H is waht you are set on.....go for it

Again, the planning part of this should be the longest part of the whole thing....and I really do mean that.

Yes, something might come up during the swap that was not expected....that is where we come in

Need to add another question...I'm in California, are there any obstacles to smog if I swap in an h22?

Yes.

I don't live there and never had, so you'll need to do some research.

My high level understanding from talking with others. The engine has to be the same or newer than the one you are replacing. All emissions items have to be working - ok what is new. You will also have to get it "BAR'd" by a smog ref.

Again very high level, you need to search to get all of the details. Then add all of those to your planning process.
