Icon2 help on wich engine to build

hey guys ive been wanting to rebuild my engine for a while now. some of the tjings i really want is vtec, i wanna hit atleast 200 whp and as close as trq as i can get to to 200wtq. reliability is a big factor for me since it is a dd. ok so here are what im lookin at doin eiyher a g22 or h23 vetc. my build budget is around 1,500, the guy at my local junkyard has a complete h22 swap minus ecu i think. it has about 160k, same as the h23 i currently hve.he wants 1k for the h22. im thinkin of gettin it and puttin in my h23 internals into that. and im planin on sellin the trans, bt wich is better the h22 or h23. i currently have a cc stage 2 clutch in bt i heard i can just switch it out. also what compresion should i aim for im thinkin 10 since the highest octane im my area is 91

Re: help on wich engine to build

H22 has moore hp then a h23..plus h23 parts sometimes are really hard to find...The Max power on a H22 its 185-220 hp and in a H23 its 170 hp....I think that the H22a JDM as 197 hp.

Re: help on wich engine to build

I would buy the h22 and just swap it over. No need putting the h23 internals in it. Can get an ecu off ebay or something. The rev limiter on the h22 should be 7800 and the vtec doesn't kick in till 5200 so it's perfect for what you want imo

Re: help on wich engine to build

i think you need to do a little more research and read what it entails on getting this motor together and have it be reliable.

also, 200wtq is asking a lot from a 200whp motor.

your goals are all out of wack.

Re: help on wich engine to build

you can def get an h22 above 220 whp its possible you just have to spend a lot of time and money! Also your gonna need more then 1500 to get those types of numbers.. rebuilding an engine is pricey business.

pretty much. and why would you try and put h23 internals into an h22? plus, if you spend a g on the engine, that only leaves you with 500 for more parts, which is like nothing
