Turboing stock H22a

whatís going on guys, i was just wondering if some of yíall could help me put together a parts list and a good route to take cause i want to move forward with a turbo, i have a 99 prelude with an h22a and iím thinking maybe 8-10lbs would be good with a stock motor, iím curretly rebuilding it with new seals but plan on buying turbo parts soon, i was hoping to make like 320-350 whp if thatís reasonable, but i would like to keep AC, donít care for PowerSteering though
ppreciate the help guys

doesn't matter how much boost you run the weak ringlands will give out or youll end up with a spun bearing

Re: Turboing stock H22a

its a gamble. either you get lucky or blow it up. I have a friend that went with the mahle pistons and his lasted about a year. if you don't really get on the pedal youll have a better chance but what fun is that lol. keep an eye out for anyone selling a sleeved block. that will save you a lot of money.

so how bout this, the spare motor i have is an h22a4 and i took it out my first prelude cause of a spun bearing, as of right now iím tearing it down and got the block off the head and tearing down the block to see if my crank got effed up, you think itís better to just rebuild this block or get a new sleeved block? this is all assuming iím going the route to turbo, cause i might just build this block

Re: Turboing stock H22a

i think lovefab makes a manifold that's equal length that keeps ac but im not even sure if they are still making anything for h22's. also don't listen to soflakid he drives a Miata.

actually **** allat, i want to take my spare motor and rebuild it H2b with turbo, it seems like buying a new sleeved block would be around the same as shipping mine out to get sleeved, you still think it would be bad to go turbo with stock motor, and yeah i know ppl recommend to just build it fully while itís out the car but thatís hella money and with buying the h2b kit and a tranny thatís already a lot... so whatchu think? i would like to keep ac with my lude cause itís my daily and it seems like a pain to build it already in the car

Re: Turboing stock H22a

i seen people selling sleeved blocks and already built bottom ends sell for less than actually having it shipped out milled and sleeved. since you have a backup motor you can boost the stock one with a good tune but its a gamble how long itll last. i had ringlands give out on a motor that wasn't even boosted so who really knows with these h22s. and you definitely need ac in florida fok that

Just spend the money now and build it or buy it man, because if you boost the stock block and you blow it then its just money (down the toilet).

Build/Buy now and for days to come.

alright so just sleeve it or buy a sleeved block, forged pistons and rods, is head work really necessary when boosting? and if so whatís the best route?

Re: Turboing stock H22a

having a built bottom end is enough unless youre doing a crazy +800whp build or something. ive seen built and assembled blocks selling for like $1,800.

Re: Turboing stock H22a

Join Florida Preludes and Florida Prelude parts on Facebook. I saw a sleeved block going for around 800 but needed to be rebuilt a few weeks ago. Blake aka 850 fab (in FL) is currently making AC/PS compatible manifolds for H22s and hes been in the prelude game for years.

H2B for preludes really isn't possible. Its not the same as doing it in a civic. KS made a Prelude H2B kit but it didn't really sell many and I don't believe they currently make it anymore. Your best bet is a T2W4 transmission imo


I wouldn't sleeve a H22 for just 350 whp. If your engine has good compression buy quality parts and get a great tune and it should be ok. Yes it could blow up but I would be more worried about tearing up clutches with double the torque. Buying a low mile h23a > sleeving engine for 350. or just buy an S2000 fam
