I'm planning on this swap as well. I have the engine already and most of the parts I have written down. You will need a bunch of stuff for this swap. I have a list written down. 
This is what you need:
– Vtec pressure sensor (OBD H series do not have this, you need it for or it will throw codes)
– OBD I H23-H22 Timing bracket
— Manual tension conversion (I'm going to be making one out of the auto tensioner)
– Gasket kit/Water pump timing belt. (Ebay kit will suffice I believe)
– P13 ECU or chipped+basemapped ECU (Though this is not the "proper" ECU, many have said they have had great results with it. 
– The MAP sensor. (Most left out thing people don't tell you about). Its on the throttle body now and since that's the case, there's no where for your stock MAP vacuum line to go… That is if you unless you remove the charcoal canister hose and use its spot on the intake (ppl say you don't need the charcoal can anyways). However I was reading most people prefer the MAP sensor on the throttle body because its "more accurate". Its pretty simple, you just need to wire it up from your existing plug… I decided I think I should do this. 
– H23 Power steering pump, bracket, pressure line… I already did this but wanted to throw it is cause you will need it if doing this swap.
– ECU pins, wire. Solder, soldering iron.

Lotta shit to take into account. Been discouraged but It will come along I just gotta be patient. My engine oil pan had a puncture in it and one of the front torque mount bracket bolts had the bold head snapped off. I called the JDM place and him about it, maybe get a little compensation since it was not the shipping companies fault. 

That's really it. Maybe someone will find this information useful.
