Skunk2 intake manifold, H22a4 .help with nxt mod

Alright so I have an h22a4 with skunk2 intake manifold, skunk2 t/b, dc header, p28 ecu soon ti be tuned on Neptune.... My question is I know I need higher compression .. This is going to be a drag race car, street drivable tho.. so im guessing cams... my tuner recommends dd tech... anything else I could do to take advantage of that skunk2 intake , nitrous maybe or turbo...... the car is a 97 civic coupe wich is gutted not my daily driver...just a weekend racer

It has the 2 1/2" collector mod but has been scraped almost flat anyways... im just buying a new header...my question really is... All I have on the stock h22a4 is skunk2 intake manifold. Should I go ahead and just bolt up a stock one for now... and save or sell the skunk manifold . Since its design is for a built motor with higher compression...?

Re: Skunk2 intake manifold, H22a4 .help with nxt mod

Looking at taking my car to a shop here in mobile called Tdc. Top dead center..Neptune dealer. So ill be tuned via Neptune... im still saving my coins up and im wiring her up then on way to dyno..... I already have a good stock header and down pipe and stock intake manifold... so I may just bolt that up for now so I can get her up n running ... save the skunk intake, buy cams, and header. Then retune....

Don't "guess" on any parts.

There are a ton of threads out there about building n/a motors. 17+ years of H22 building at your fingertips.


I'd recommend getting rid of the skunk2. It seems to get better results with boosted applications vs n/a.
