    :unsure: Okay I have a 96 Accord EX VTEC, F-22B motor, should I swap or Rebuild. DOHC_Accord has helped me out on the swapping part but why should I swap over rebuild, which would be cheaper, and which would have better performance. If I rebuild I would put a a DOHC head on and everything... oh I also want to go F.I. help me decide.. :unsure:

    the new swap would be more reliable if you want f/i. or if you wanted to rebuild it do it all the way with pistons and everything then go f/i

    first off, the F22 is a single-cam motor. You can't put a dual-cam head on it.
    What's wrong with your motor that you're considering a rebuild?

    i think the only swap possible for your car would be a H22.

    you can go f/i on your stock motor or the H22.

    You CAN put a DOHC head on there (a local shop did it), but it's no easy task, especially for a garage mechanic.

    Better performance? Swapping in a DOHC. Cheaper? Probably building the SOHC. Best for power if you keep the SOHC? Turbo, only. You won't get much power out of that engine trying to stay n/a.
