Everything you have written in this post is a direct indicator that the H22 in an EG is not for you. Your not going to get rev out of an H22 reliably because of the rod/stroke ratio. The H's make great power but the power is short lived due to the 7500rpm limit. Also, the axle issues your gonna have are going to compromise your liking for this swap. If you only want straight line its not bad, but turning at speed will be a problem, the axle will contact the inside of the damper fork or bind. I am not one of these people mouthing about something I have never owned either...if you want an eg hatch you can buy mine...its on ebay right now.. I built this car basically just to do it, and if you notice in the rear view pic of the hatch my crx under the tarp with the SiR front end, its the car that will receive the K20a I buy from selling this car :D

Yeah, the hatch wasn't bad but H22's are problem swaps for sure. I see them as the DSM's of the Honda motor bunch...balancer shafts with problematic trannies. As far as the reserve goes...I have people watch the auction to be sure the bidding goes where I want it to...kind of manipulating the system but...hey it works. Honestly though, the car will sell before auctions end, I have about 20 offers on the car..one of them has to come through. If not I will just end the auction and that'll be that. I will just have to put it in Auto Trader or something. H22's are pretty mean motors, and torquey as all hell but the weight and axle issues just ruin the whole deal. All I know is I wish someone would buy this damn thing so I can buy my K20a for that little beasty CRX I got waitin.
