building a h23 from a h22

Is it possible? If I just swap the heads? And keep the f22 bottom end.

If you want a vtec head for your F22aX look into swaping in a F23v SOHC, or a F22b SOHC vtec head. Its a dirrect head swap. Or if you want an DOHC motor look into a F22b DOHC head, Its a non vtec head but it is allso a direct swap. If that dosn't tickle your fancy you can swap in a H23a1 slap some H22 pistons in it, its a farly simple swap from what has been read. And if you want Vtec still! put a H22 head on it. Thats not as hard to do, as compared to the G22 hybrid.

Re: building a h23 from a h22

Oh damn, there are so many options and so little money. I really want this thing running, we are kinda broke and this car is rough.


I am looking at a complete running h23 motor tomorrow. Which kind of brings me to a question. What would you do with a well running h23 with 185k? What would you replace or check?

Re: building a h23 from a h22

If my car is not running id just put it in the car and leave it the heck alone!!! Ide iron out all the kinks and get the car running reliably. after the engine is in good shape running no problems i personly would slap a bolt on turbo on it run 7-8 psi, and call it a day!... now i know that it is not as easy as just slaping a turbo on it but thats me. I remeber in another thread you don't want to turbo. You can drop in some H22 pistons, A GOOD F22/H23 header and bigger injectors.

Re: building a h23 from a h22

We all want fast cars and more power. . . It is a fact. This thing is not about that, I just want a solid, good looking point a to point b car which still sounds mean.

I want fast, I step into the z28. It likes a Honda challenge

well i that is the case just put in that H23 get a header with a 2.5 collector, intake and 2.5 exhaust piping with a decent muffler, it will sound nice and juciy. It will spank almost every pre"K series" N/A civic you may come across!

Sounds quite reasonable. . . . I will go check it out today. It's still fully running and in one piece still in the car.

Too bad I have to pull it.

Re: building a h23 from a h22

What I did was I bought a beater 92 that looks like its been through hell for $1000. It has an H22a in it, jdm specs, and it wasnt running. I put a new battery connections and a new battery in, and did an exhaust system. Now it runs and I'm tinkering with stuff.
Best thing to do is check craigslist for a good engine. A lot of times people order engines from Japan via an engine shop and then dont pay for it, so the engine shop has an engine that they dont have a use for. I just looked and found two h22a's from japan via Fluid Motorsports here in Tacoma, WA.
The H22a is supposedly stronger than any of the a1's etc.
I'm going to make this car look nice again and then grab another h22a and build it up for twin-turbos if its possible. Easier to build a spare engine ya know.
