It all depends on what you want. All-motor or boost.?
If you are going for boost,rebuild the H23 and turbo.
If your going for all-motor, get the H22.

Re: TO REBUILD....OR REPLACE...THAT IS THE QUESTION

dude for the cost of that h22 (if nothing is wrong with it, and your buying it from someone who still has it in their car) that cant be beat.

buy the h22 and swap that in. then on the side, build up your h23 motor. make it boost ready. this way if somethin should ever happen to your h22, you have a ready-for-boost h23 and you can swap that in. then you can rebuild the h22.

^how about THAT!
