g22 oil question

So I got the f22 and my head is not happy so I picked up a h22a1 head and was planning on doing the swap and heard of people starving the bottom end of oil so my question is does anyone see any problems with taking the set screws (allen cap) off the side of the oil gulley on the side of the head and running a oil line down through a oil cooler to a fitting on the oil pan. In a way kinda like a turbo a oil line out the head and through the turbo and into the pan. I know I would need to probally regulate the oil flow but I really don't know if it would work please don't be rude with the response I am completely clueless about if it will work or not

Re: g22 oil question

Are you trying to increase oil capacity or coole the oil? If it's just for capacity get the vtec conversion kit from somebody like Kteller and add the oil coller in line. it's an easy way to run the vtec oil supply also. there is also a fitting under the IM that alot of people tap into when running turbos, but you would need to weld in the return fitting to the oil pan as you mentioned the kit I referenced doesn't need the fitting it's all in the spacer. Also upgrading to a larger oil pan would be wise. Moroso has a nice one.

Re: g22 oil question

I knew it would increase the capasity of oil but was just trying to find a way to get oil from the head to the pan faster so I do not starve the block of oil. I guess that motor setup has poor oil flow due to blocking off 2 oil ports. A guy around here's got a h23 block with a h22 head for 400 so I think I'm just going to pick that up just needs bearings but same thing applies there need to get oil to the pan quicker so I don't fry the motor like I did on my gst what are your suggestions on better oil flow

Re: g22 oil question

not possitive that it will increase flow but it stands to reason that more capacity allows more flow.

Re: g22 oil question

Well the rod in cylinder 4 is shot all 4 cylinder walls are scratched up and crank needs to be turned and a h23a1 block even be boared out because of the aluminum?
