f22 Mini-me/turbo questions

So since i started attending uti and learned a lot more about engines ive been wondering about a lot about previous things ive heard about honda engines.

When going turbo, wouldnt it be better to have a mini-me swap with a higher end vtec head mixed with a much lower compression block like the f22a? versus just doing a straight swap with a little higher compression vtec motor. or is there a point where your compression is so low its pointless?

also, when swapping on a vtec head. if im gonna put in aftermarket cam, valves, and springs does it really make any difference what head i get as long as it is a vtec head?

thanks for any help
-cody

Re: f22 Mini-me/turbo questions

People normally boost the f22a1 because it's the lower compression engine and it handles low boost very nicely without internal mods. VTEC is VTEC, but some are just made better cough*H22*cough. Also, there aren't many other heads compatible with the F block except other F heads and H's.

Re: f22 Mini-me/turbo questions

also, ive heard the f series are sleeved stock. therefore they can handle much more boost stock. is this true?

So I guess the hundreds of ppl who've done the G22/23 hybrid were only imagining their engines were running

The F blocks have iron sleeves stock. Which means you can very easily bore/hone them, or drop in forged pistons.
The H blocks have FRM sleeves, do a search for them. And you'll quickly find why you can't as easily (i.e. CHEAP) drop forged pistons into them.
