already one step ahead of u guys.. i was looking into this when i first saw that this was being done into the hatchs..... did a few measurments..

it seems to fit.. however it looks like but not to sure unless i can actually drop one in.. either the radiator might have to either be moved to where the a/c condernser is so ur gona lose a/c OR use a half size to move it off to the side...

cause if the motor doesnt move forward to the front its gona hit the steering wheel rack.. idk.. im looking for a J motor locally for the past 5 months now.. so once i find one i can tell u for sure...

wit the rbc u have to cut the rad supposrt cause it sticks out to far forward like this

however wen u do the J swap theres nothing really sticking out that far... u got the exhaust headers in the front.. but if u look at these motors u will notice that it jus goes straight down and doesnt stick out like the rbc mani

jus speculation... haha.. kinda makes u wonder if the guys at hasport already tried

for one thats too tight of a fit.. look how close the crank pulley is next to the subframe.. next thing u have to take out is a/c and the RADIATOR.. hmm.. looks like something that had to be relocated to the front of the car between the bumper and bumper support....

then theres legal issues.. if u swap a older motor into a newer chassis.. its illegal to swap it.. unless u find an h22 thats newer than ur car

then u got wiring issues.. seems like ur gona have to take the whole dash and engine harness and swap it out... then u gotta rewire the gauge cluster to work wit the B-series ecu... if not then u might as well swap in an older cluster from the h22 car so u dont have to do much..

idk.. i think its jus to much custom stuff... more work.. and so forth to get a h22 in there.. i can swap a K into ur car in a day compared to the H22 swap.

btw.. it took him almost 4 months of researching the schmeatics and diagrams and custom fabing to get it running

other than that much props to him and his work

Js are not longer nor are they wider than a k20 with intake and exhaust.. i dont know why so many people think they are.... they're just taller
back from the dead... i might have somethign in the works.. jus talk right now on getting the motor.. might be some custom mounts being made on my end
