H23 in an '89 Si 4WS?

Looking for advice and to draw on experience of others here...

I've got an '89 Si 4WS (best car ever). Engine is the crappy B20A5 with 366 000 km on it.

A friend of mine picked up a newer prelude with an H23 and much less mileage that a poor sucker rolled and wrote off. Engine works great and I can get it very very cheap...

Which leads me to my question. Will it fit, or am I asking for a headache?

Also, if it is possible, which computer should I take?

more money than it's worth, IMO.
you need custom motor mounts, axles, and custom engine harness, just to name a couple.

1funryd did it. I believe he distributes the mounts and accels to make it happen
1FunRyd's - Auto to 5 speed swap, B20A - H23 Non-VTEC swap
