need help on what to build h23 vtec or g22

ok so my car currently sits with an h23 with 160k. ive always really wanted vtec just to have some extra power.so my bros in denver for 2 weeks and hes looking around junkyards to find me either an f22 block or h23 block so i can build either a g22 or h23vtec. heres a list of things im looking for


1.i want it to be as reliable as it can be.
2. i want the most power as i can get out of it while still keeping the reliability for a dd.
3. i wanna keep the build budget between 1k-1.5k

theres other stuff but i cant remember lol.

some of the questions i have is whats the biggest piston size i can run on either blocks.
im not going for an insane build just want a fun dd with lots of tourque prob wont see much racing just some spirited drivin on back roads an highway. also what trans would be best h22 or h23

Re: need help on what to build h23 vtec or g22

H23v may be your best bet. H parts with H parts. This will help keep it simpler. And to be honest any hybrid can be realible but probly not for the price range you just listed. But if ou hustel it is possible. My boy diomand_lude had a G22 and it was a nasty motor to **** with. He probly could beat tha pants off of his H22 he has now but it was volitle because it wasn't built right. I suggest the H23v because from what I have read it is a bit more stable for less.

Re: need help on what to build h23 vtec or g22

From what ive gatherd on my short time here on PZ it all depends on future mods.
ive heard the G22 is good for boost and the h23 vtec as well but i forsee more power from h23v and a lil more reliability as naj3000 said H&H keeps it simple and most parts are interchangeable any way

Re: need help on what to build h23 vtec or g22

well both engines would give you pretty good low end and booth are good for boost depending on what pistons you run and both have vtec "power". And i realize that you said you don't want to boost haha. And another thing, peaple dont really buy complete running engines to make hybrids just in case you where saying that, I actully had a hard time figuring out what you just said to me. No punctation makes your post very hard to read.
