We study systems of few two-component fermions interacting in a Harmonic Oscillator trap. The fermion-fermion interaction is generated in a finite basis with a unitary transformation of the exact two-body spectrum given by the Busch formula. The few-body Schrödinger equation is solved with the formalism of the No-Core Shell Model. We present results for a system of three fermions interacting at unitarity as well as for finite values of the S-wave scattering length a2 and effective range r2. Unitary systems with four and five fermions are also considered. We show that the many-body energies obtained in this approach are in excellent agreement with exact solutions for the three-body problem, and results obtained by other methods in the other cases.
