How fast is a h22a type s engine ( redtop)

Hi i got a prelude with a h22a type s ( sir spec) (BB6) engine ( red top 217 hp at 7200 rpm) and i wanted know how fast is this engine on a scale of 1-10 ( 1 BEING A DODGE CARAVAN AND 10 BEING A R35 GTR .better? lol ) My prelude is a automatic( I know automatic? I wanted 5sp but the car was a gift) and it has stupid **** like cc,pw,pm,memory seats,heated mirriors.how fast you think its gonna be after fixed up( extremely slow atm because of a spark plug i think like 1-60 time is like 1 min no lie).

Re: How fast is a h22a type s engine ( redtop)

Mated to an auto tranny, about a 3 in the grand scheme of things. In your particular scale, I'd say about a 7.

And the B18C is a puss of a motor anyway.

1 being a Ford Taurus and 10 being a B18C Type R... Hmm. Not much of a scale. lol.

What kind of Ford Taurus engine, because the Taurus SHO's are quick the new ones are twin turbo v6 with 365 HP and B18c is 197 hp Vtec. so in your scale it would be negative numbers lol. sorry man i like the SHO i had to do it.

Re: How fast is a h22a type s engine ( redtop)

Yeah, paired with an H22 5speed with an LSD you would have a fantastic car, but the b18c Type R doesn't have the torque of the h22a, let alone the red top. But the H22 Red top paired with the Type R's tranny, now THERE is a combination that will throw your **** around. Lol.

Re: How fast is a h22a type s engine ( redtop)

I was going to say... I wouldn't be surprised to see a Taurus SHO keep up with, if not pass, a Prelude like nothing...

Here's a good quote for the new Taurus SHO:

"After skipping two Ford Taurus generations, the resurrected sport sedan has all-wheel drive and is largely derived from the Volvo S60 and S80 chassis. It features a 3.5 liter direct-injected twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 producing 365 hp (272 kW) at 5500 rpm and 350 lbft (475 Nm) of torque at 3500 rpm, mated to Ford's 6F55 six-speed SelectShift semi-automatic transmission with a paddle- or console-activated Manual mode."

The older ones are fast, the new one would PWN a Prelude like a damn go-kart.

Re: How fast is a h22a type s engine ( redtop)

Bwahahaha. Coming from personal experience, the H22's VTEC beats the piss out of the B18c5's. I'm at ITR expo every year and my friend Seth has an H22 swapped Hatch, and that hatches VTEC is the most disgusting thing I have ever ridden in, including Type R's on the track.

Re: How fast is a h22a type s engine ( redtop)

An H22 with a full 3" setup sounds about as good as it gets for an import as far as I'm concerned. Domestic motors still get the nod as far as sounding good goes... But I'll stick to my imports for everything else.

Yeah. Sorry, I should've specified I4 motors. The VQ35, as well as the 13B sound pretty sweet to me.

how do they run like sick dogs? Your dog only gets sick if you dont take proper care of it. And alot of retards dont know that they have special engines that need to be driven differently.

Even if they are running properly, the Renesis engine sucks in my opinion. My cousin had an RX-8 and I drove it all the time, and wasn't a big fan. The chassis itself is alright, but the motor is just, bleh.

Hmm, I guess its all just hype. I love the way they look, the interior, and the chassis. I guess I would just have to drive one to see what you mean by not liking the engine...

and dalton. how bout you smarten up. you friggen shortbus.

The Renesis has absolutely no balls and gets terrible mileage. Give me an old three rotor 20B any day of the week.

Re: How fast is a h22a type s engine ( redtop)

a three rotor is gonna get even worse mileage though? And I thought that the renesis was like our h22s, you gotta wind it up to see any power...

Re: How fast is a h22a type s engine ( redtop)

It'll rev to 9k all day, but it's not really "Pin you to your seat" power... A stock RX-8 only runs high 14's in the 1/4 if I remember correctly...which is really nothing to brag about. Don't get me wrong, it was nice to drive occasionally, but it wasn't anything special. It wasn't noticeably nimble, but it wasn't a boat. It was just...average. Guess that's why they're outta production huh?
