Upgrading this engine: F20A4

Hey guys, heres an experimental question to find out whats possible.

I've got a 5th gen prelude with the F20A4 engine, unmodifed, and for the time being will do nothing to it. Though one day it might be fun when I've the money.

***My question is basically, whats possible in terms of getting more power from the engine? Try to have a progression plan, or break it up into stages.***

Anyhow, if you're unfamiliar with the stats, here they are.

Have fun, and go wild!

F20A4

Specifications

* Bore × Stroke: 85.0 × 88.0 mm
* Displacement: 1997 cc
* Valve Configuration: SOHC, 16 valves
* Max output : F20A4 136 PS @ 5400 rpm (PGM-Fi)
* Max torque : F20A4 18.5 kg m @ 4300 rpm (PGM-Fi)
* Fuel consumption : 9.6 km/l (PGM-Fi)

nope, s2k engines are F20C and F22C's


it all depends on how much money you have, how far your willing to go, and what you plan on doing with the car/?

are you from Europe?

I dont know anything about the sohc 2 liters in Accords, other than the wiki stuff but i have to imagine that motor isn't really desirable under a Prelude body. . .

It's EDM, JDM, and AUDM (Colin correc tme if I'm wrong there).

Your car also has 4 lugs instead of 5 right?

It was basically the S model of the 5th gens. It's still a Lude.

lol, I'm 21, it's my first car, I've been driving my parents cars for a year...

Irish Insurance is crazy, Out of 30 Insurers, 4 would quote me!

7000euro, 7000euro, 4000euro, then 1800euro.

I love my lude


Still hoping this will be a potential theoretical thread, but so far nothing... lol, besides changing the engine

...and yeah, I understand it's the lowest of the low for a lude... BUT

1) Almost all 2.2 & 2.3's are Autos here (which I definitely didn't want)
2) All good examples are way overpriced 98's... even more so for the S-types (Typically they go for 9000 and 11k for a S)
3) Lot's are Jap imports, which means higher insurance.
4) Oh and can't get insurance for anything over 2.0i

Example: http://www.carzone.ie/usedcars/index...r&carID=823682


So I'm happy at the moment

and I'd love to see whats possible with this engine (if any of you guys would like to share your expertise)
