Re: Engine swap

the mooooost common is the H22a VTEC. You may as well go with that. If you want to boost eventually, then go with the F22 SOHC that the Prelude "S" came with since it has cast iron sleeves and can take a beating. The H's can go boost as well but I don't think you can boost that much unless if you have built the **** out of it
