F22a1 Sucks! I need more horsepower!!

I have a 95 Lude with an f22a1 and it sucks!!!! I def want more power. What is the best thing to do to get power besides a turbo or a motor swap? I was thinking maybe a vtec head swap but idk what to go with..

Re: F22a1 Sucks! I need more horsepower!!

if you're hesitant on a swap or turbo, the only other power adder option probably isn't for you.



nitrous.

Re: F22a1 Sucks! I need more horsepower!!

Which would probably be nitrous right? I am not hesitant on this build bc i plan on boosting the car but i just wanted to know what else i could do. Will an h22 head build lower compression?

Just save up for boost it's worth it. I was hanging with/beating Stang GTs with 250whp/275wtq at 10psi.t

Re: F22a1 Sucks! I need more horsepower!!

how much more power do you want? Its possible to get good N/A power out of that single jingle without boost... but more than likely its gona cost you a grip load.. as with all car modding


hears one.
Mild N/A
How to make 30+hp for $500 or less... (DX/LX F22A1 only) - CB7Tuner Forums

a good one for H22a like power.
Real-World Mild NA F22ax SOHC Project Expense List - CB7Tuner Forums



hears big power!!
Bisimoto Engineering has ZC stuff too! lol



The F22A is amazing, and we beat tons of pro K-series guys, with a fraction of the budget they have. For goodness sakes, I still run a stock windshield (and they hate it).

The guesswork is now gone with the F22A. We have all you need to exceed your goals. A simple recipe:

86mm bore
12:1 Bisimoto shelf pistons
Custom Bisimoto level 2.9 camshaft
Ported head (will help a bunch)
Bisimoto pro springs
H23 intake manifold
Oversized throttle body
Bisimoto F22a header (or at least something decent)
2.5" or larger exhaust system
Good engine management (AEM or Hondata)

Voila!!
that can be found here
All motor f22a build - Page 2 - onecamonly.com

and here is a decent list of N/A F22ax motors
F22ax NA Engine Builds - Compilation Thread - CB7Tuner Forums.

and if you do feel like boosting i have somthing else for you!
Boosted F22aX

the only head swaps i personly suggest would be an F series head like the F22b SOHC or DOHC or maby even the F23

happy building!

this post is gold!!! hours and hours of research on one post?! lucky you!!!

no problem dude. More than likly the reason anyone has yet to answer the question is becasue this has been asked here a few times. Turbo and N/A are two compete different animals in regauds to different camshaft options and manifold requrments. But Its possible to build a High compression turbo motor. But that requires alot of GOOD tunning and with great tunning comes GREAT cashflow. With that being said you can use some High comp pistons and a ported head and the stock cam (or F22a6) cam, then later swap out the head if you want but that means the car will have to betuned to best utilize the mods. My personal suggestion would be just stick with one. or have 2 cars.
