94 Prelude Blown Head motor swap or rebuild?>

I have a 94 lude with the f22 sohc with a blown head. I need some advice on what i shoould do? Evenutally i want to boost it....these are my options:

1.Rebuild the f22 and by a new head (will the f22b dohc head fit?)

2.Buy a jdm h22 (but will that fit on the f22 tranny?)

3.Buy a new motor that will fit tranny (f22b dohc fit?)

i want to go the easiest route but i want to boost it eventually but i heard that the F searies motors are better to boost than H series

do you mean you blew your head GASKET???
or did you mess up the valvetrain in the head?? cuz those are 2 VERY different things.

1- yes a F22b head will fit, IF you can find one cuz they're kinda rare. if you can't find it, its pretty much the same head as the H23 head which can also be used on the F22

2-all H/F trannies are interchangable. you'll just have shorter/longer gearing depending on what combo you go with

3-see above

my advice: drop some forged internals in the F22, throw a F22b/H23 head on it, and boost away (i cant believe i just said that )

Definatley need a new gasket but the head is warped due to it over heating because it keeps going through thermostats. I would like to keep the same tranny because i have new axles, act clutch and lightened flywheel. Coolant is in my oil so i do not know if the block is still good? but i would like to stay with the F series block becuase of the cast iron sleeves and with e H series i know you have to replace them.

The F20C and F22C engines and trannys aren't interchangeable in the Lude though.

good call E. forgot about thsoe damn pesky S2K engines having a similar engine code


overheating and coolant in the oil is def a bad head gasket, but since you hafta take the head off anyway, it only makes sense to change the gasket while your in there. you might as well throw a cometic head gasket and ARP head studs in there if your thinking of boost, then whichever head you desire.

good luck sir
