Re: What kind of engine do i have?

It looks like it's stamped f22b on block.... But it looks like h23a1

H23a is vtec, and a1 Is not so its not the same to correct a previous poster

Re: What kind of engine do i have?

Compression/leakdown test can tell you how worthy it is to do headwork or bottom end work OR BOTH! Yay!
Clean the engine real good if you care for it and you will be able to spot any oil runs/leaks. Some spots only leak when they get hot as ****, then they leak onto metal and burn away on hot metal and never drip on the ground, as the telltale driveway stain would show. You would only get a smelly, oily engine when it's hot. Mine used to do it and I couldn't spot the stain on the transmission housing cause of black crud, but the car would stank of oil when hot in traffic last summer. I cleaned her real good, changed my cam seal, VC seal and spark plug well seals and the stank went away, but I was hemorrhaging (another story).
F22 is a good engine for power. You will discover lot's more as you read more. But read about H and F series Honda engines and B transmissions and t2w4 and t2t4 transmissions. You might want to change and swap engines. Or do crazy Turbo F, I dunno... The info is EVERYWHERE !!!! Honda F engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
