Icon6 which route to go when doing a rebuild engine?

New Prelude owner! I have a stock h22a4 engine that i want to do a rebuild. i was wondering what mods would be nice....fuel injection size, piston size, cams, fuel rail, throttle body, ect. only mods done so far are AEM intake, APEXI exhaust, MISHIMOTO radiator. i am looking for performance, but is a daily driver as well. Thanks you for your time

Re: which route to go when doing a rebuild engine?

you should decide do you wanna do full build or not... you dont get performance without spending cash. a lot.
if you wanna performance you have to change about everything

cams + valvetrain ~1000
cam gears ~200
header ~500
TB ~350
IM ~350
injectors & fuel rail ~420
ecu & harness ~300
pistons & rods atleast 1000
+ tune and gaskets/seals + other work

costs even more if youre not making work yourself

so do you have 6k now?

i hate to sit on parts, but i do understand it would take some cash and time to get the parts i want. i am just looking for the shopping list. the engine is about 6k short of 200k miles. so i want a full build. i know honda are good cars and last forever. i just think it is a good excuse to go the route i like.

Re: which route to go when doing a rebuild engine?

dont you want to do some research first what you would want your car to be like... because when you ask other people to say what you should do, you might ending up with car which acts something you might not like?

I could say what Ive been thinking to do with mine but then do we have the same goals..

Re: which route to go when doing a rebuild engine?

well i am a welder and can save around 300 to 400 a week. i do have some bills but i bought the car cash. last month. good looking car. when i got the car it was all stock. i would love to throw a turbo in it, but that is why i would like the engine up to par. first things first and that is the engine....i would love to get the most hp out of it, while still keeping the honda durability.

Re: which route to go when doing a rebuild engine?

Do your own research on what you want to do.
We can't tell you how to build your car or what specific parts to use - only make suggestions and help slightly. Your car, your build.

With that said -

Take the list TypeT gave you and double the cost... that's just a rough estimate using quality parts. You will need all new seals/gaskets ontop of the parts you wish to modify.

So tell us your goals, and we can suggest what parts you will need to upgrade. Then it is up to you to research the details as in what brand to go with and proper sizing.

Re: which route to go when doing a rebuild engine?

if you want turbo, you will need to re sleeve the block to get most HP from it

Re: which route to go when doing a rebuild engine?

then one thing what I always want to say: do everything at once - you might get better deals with bigger buys.... and when installing everything at once you dont have to tune it over and over again. in this way you save money.

heh, Im having 2nd build/upgrade soon so I know this: not so smart to get things in difference times
