Is it possible to put a turbo on a H22A
if it is
is it a good idea or will it screw up the whole VTEC magic?
It is possible and it won't mess your vtec magic.
Vtec magic?! Someones been watching too much Best Motoring.
Dude, research alittle. All this information is out there. H22 is a great motor to boost. As far as the "VTEC magic", there are cams out there designed for boosted VTEC applications. :wink2:
I have been researching I just want to be sure.
So I see...Yes...Yes...me like:drool:
I'm getting too far ahead of myself:2cents:
for now... bwahahahah.
I have heard many many times that the h22 engine is an excellent platform to boost from. Though one of my friends has said all his friends who have done it have distroyed the engines. But it obivously depends on the install and boost levels
Lets get some things straight. You can turbo anything. ANYTHING.
Second, I think you need to cool it on the "VTEC magic" nonsense. Learn how VTEC works, and you'll realize its just a way for Honda to put racier cams in a street car. It's not a Holy Grail, just a way of keeping a car civilized.
So I See
Oh yeahhh that makes sense
but at least It's better than an 130hp stock engine.
Wait a minute.
I have a 16 valve engine
that means if I were to take out the stock cams and put in performance cams then it would increase my speed significantly or how significantly?
The same amount as performance cams on any engine would. It doesn't increase your amount of valves or anything.
So what do you think would be best DOHC VTEC 16 valve engine
or performance cams on my stock 16 valve engine?
pretty much the same, only on a vtec the agressive cam is only applied after a given RPM, like 6000 or 7000 on up
It would prob take me a long time to reach that huh
especially in the city and lots of pigs around.
It would do you just as much good to get performance cams on your current engine for go-fast purposes. Would save you quite a bit of cash as well.
