Replacing H22 Piston Rings

Hey guys, I have a 1995 Honda Prelude VTEC. obd1 h22a1. And I want to replace the piston rings, the engine internally is fully stock, So I was wondering do I need to hone the block before I replace the things?
And the dealer sells oem and .25 over size. Which one do I need?

I've heard that with the type of material used in our cylinder walls that you do not need to hone unless the walls are badly damaged or if their are abrasions deep enough to catch your fingernail. Somebody plz correct me if im wrong tho.

That is correct, just run your fingernail around the cylinders and if any abrasions catch your fingernail than it is recommended that you get them honed. Other than that you can just slap them in and go. Your pistons are stock correct? Than just get stock sizing. You will need to get the slightly bigger OS pistons to run the .25mm OS rings.

wouldn't be any need to run OS pistons if you didn't get a hone correct?

Re: Replacing H22 Piston Rings

if you hone your block .25 over then you will ruin it.... honeing is to just enough to smooth the walls a little bit... and replace with stock rings.... if you want to do it right take you block in and have it bored .10 over and get .10 rings it will be brand new after that
