    I've taken on more work hours and started saving up for my new project, 1990 Accord nitrous. Here's what I have so far:

    Project Accord:
    Suspension/Chassis work:
    New lug bolts
    new springs and shocks (lower an inch or 2)
    bigger, slotted brakes
    wheels and tires

    Powertrain:
    Rebuilt junkyard F22A engine and tranny
    Rebuild kit (all gaskets, internals, etc.)
    Stronger pistons/rods
    titanium valvetrain
    ARP studs
    New: waterpump
    belts
    plugs/wires
    dizzy
    shifter cables
    Walbro fuel pump
    higher-flowing fuel injectors (what size??)

    NITROUS 100-200 wet shot
    MSD ignition
    Cold air intake, Header, softer exhaust system (sleeper :) )


    Planning on yanking an F22a in the next few weeks, plenty available, after rebuild I'll try out a 100 shot and see how it feels. Still saving, but trying to plan carefully.

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    They fit an f22a straight up? How much power can they take?

    It's hard finding parts for an F22a, I'm used to working with a D-series. I know there was this F22A specific website I found a while back it had everything you could need but I can't remember the damn thing.

    It was hard tracking down a good rebuild kit, I'm still looking for stronger pistons, rods, and a stronger valvetrain.

    Was it www.f22parts.com?

    Bisimoto makes F-series parts too. They won't be cheap though...

    With a wet shot will you really even need bigger injectors? You should get a set of nice ones, no doubt, but I dunno that bigger will be needed. The rest of your fuel system will need work for sure though.

    Race Engineering, Inc has them. I would go with Crower or Carillo rods, both are great but from what I hear Crower is better and thats what I'm doing with my build so....

    and Pistons, Wiseco or OEM is the best way to go if you are looking to bottle feed it. Eventually if you boost you might want to upgrade pistons but OEM pistons are cast iron and very durale!

    Fuel system will need to be adjusted but I would NOT go with any saturated injectors. Accel makes wonderful peak and hold injectors for the f22 serious and I would recommend running atleast a VAFC II with the shot, and no higher that a 260cc injector, anything over that is a little on the crazy side without boost. A fuel pressure regulator is definitely a good idea and while your at it grab an AEM fuel rail to top things off. With the injectors you dont nesicarily need a bigger fuel pump for any injectors 260cc and under but anyhigh and i'd look at a 255lph pump. Just something small to get started off with.
