Help Me Out Guys

So I have a rebuilt F22 sohc non vtec motor with around 11k on it. What are some motor mods that would produce decent horsepower gains? Is this motor even worth modding? I'm new to four cylinders and imports, so I need some help here guys.

F22 is a decent motor but has a weak bottom end.... it really depends what you wanna get out of it.... as for the modifications they are all individually explained and explained together in great detail throughout the forum... including reviews on brands and peoples personal experience.... Browse around a little read up and see what questions you cant figure out on your own... after all you know what you want out of the car more then we do.

I dont think there is really much to explain... the F series motor is known for having a weaker bottom end then other honda motors....

Are these turbo kits on ebay actually any good lol? Other than boost what else would have significant hp gains on the motor? I'm basically trying to set the motor up for drag and autocross. I'd be happy with low 14's high 13's.

The compression ratio is perfect for boost on the f22 but for a good turbo with a tune that will be dependable NOT EBAY! your going to have to spend 1500+ or even more. The turboed f22 will only be producing 200 give or take from what i understand... So why not buy say a JDM H22 with an 8k redline swap? This way you have a better motor base to start off with and your already around 200 horses.
Also keep in mind that if you pla on doing a swap you can run the f22 you have for now but build up the H series motor to the compression you want for a turbo if you want to go turbo then swap it all in when your done...

Your talking about going strip... There is good reason why people swap out there f22's for say an H series motor.... When drivers are serious about the times they run on a track with with 4 cyl motors rarley do you see people using F-series motors.

Now before i get flamed for that last comment.. People do you use F series motors on the track YES i understand that. HOwever when people are like i said a little more serious about there times and want the most they can get out of the car the general consenous is why put all that money in an F series motor when a good swap can be done for a reaonable price and you have a much better starting point.

Well let me ask u this, I also have an h22 head that came with the car. How hard is it to make a g22 and also is it worth all the work or would a new motor be better.

I don't really know much about mating up the head of the h22 with the bottom end of the f22. I have heard and read of people having a lot of headaches with it though. However I think IMHO that since you have an h22 head, go get yourself a good bottom end of an h22 that you can build. Then build up that h22 head and having your valve work and machining done; or vise versa. Then bolt her all together take that f22 out and drop in the nicely built h22 beast you now have..........
Since you have a good h22 head your build will be even cheaper then I originally thought. And because your sitting on a good running f22 prelude you can have fun with it while you take your time and make an h22 swap that will have all of us jealous......

f22s are known for really strong bottom ends. Before i sold my accord i was gonna put the h22 head on the f22's bottom just so i could turbo it with fewer worries and get big gains

either plan is good (if the f22 is still solid)... pick turbo, vtec, or both!

Maybe I was just thinking that in order for those f22's to keep up with the h22's they have to be boosted and just dont last as long that way
