Life of a boosted H22

Someone told me that boosted H series don't. I've heard otherwise from others but I need some reassurance. How many miles do you guys have on your boosted engines and how are they running?

If it's done properly there aren't any problems. Same with any boosted application really.

H22's are one of the best motors that HONDA made to run a turbo application. you should make sure your motor does not have any internal issues and make sure you buy a turbo from a reputable company and if you can't do the install yourself don't ghetto out on the install. pay for the craftmanship.
REMEMBER YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!

Werd, my best advice to you is to do a leakdown and compression test before anything. Mileage isn't a concern as much as condition of the engine. I've seen rotaries wit 150K miles in better shape than a Honda motor with 20K miles, and normally you'd expect those names and numbers to be swapped. Do you want to do a true build or just bolt on?




Kent, I assume you're looking into buying a 4th gen. Main difference in H22 and H23 is H22 has VTEC, higher compression, and 30 extra hp. Both of them have FRM sleeves, which means no forged internals for you unless you get aftermarket sleeves.
So, in a nutshell, the H23 likes the turbo better for 2 reasons. 1 being lower compression, and the other is that those trannies have slightly loner gears than the H22 tranny.
On the flip slide, the H22 is a performance engine, it can rev to 7000 rpms all day as long as it has clean oil. An H23 will blow if it's rolled out too much. For example, the guy who bought my 4th gen with an H23 misshifted while redlining and blew a rear main seal. Other stories are way worse. There's also a joke that the H23 crank comes in 2 pieces, plus they're known to spin bearing more frequently.
If you're serious about boost, get one with a SOHC F22 in it. 130 hp, but it has iron sleeves, and you can run higher boost on them much more safely, plus they have the longest gears of all. YOu miht be surprised at how well an SOHC Honda takes to boost. How much are you looking at spending on this whole build? What are your horsepower or 1/4 mile goals?

Thank You For Your Help. Yea Well im Buying A Honda Prelude And Im Not Sure What Would be The Best Bang For My buck. Im Looking Into The 5th Gen. Because Of There Style And Also Im Looking Into A V-Tec Engine Because I Heard They Are Great At High Reving. But In The End Within A Streatch Over Time Im Looking At Putting No More Then 7 Grand Into The Engine Alone. And Hoping To Get It Up To At Least 600 HP. As For The 1/4 Mile Im Hoping Some Where In The 10's Or High 11's

H22 isn't the BEST Honda engine out there for boost. The f22 is probably best for boost.

I'm leaping back and forth between N/a and F/i, But i definitely can't afford nor have the skills and resources to obtain power goals I want from N/a so I'm pretty close to picking boost once and for all. But if i do choose that I'm not half assing anything. I have plenty of time to plan this out and make sure everything is done right so that this car lasts.

Spend wisely and 400 is attainable for 7K. Unless you have slicks and a traction bar, you'll only be in low 12's with around 400. Rory (a member here) made 416 whp and ran 12.18 best I believe it was. The Oaks Racing Prelude makes 872 and still only runs 10's, on slicks.
