    its a lot of work for a 10 hp gain...

    just enjoy the gas mileage of the CX now while you can, and you will end up saving faster for the h22 on gas too :)

    its probably the block/rings that burn the oil, not the head...

    why you are racing in a freakin CX is beyond me anyway... i mean christ.

    just wait. let everyone know your car is slow as hell
    and then suddenly, you're h22'ed and you come out of no where and own folks

    its pointless to do this swap like everyone else said because weak power gain and wiring problems out the ass. CX's are the true definition of grocery getter, 70hp and i think 80 something lb ft of torque. Comeon why race in that its just pointless and retarded.

    :boff: sorry I couldn't help it. Trying to race in such a slow car isn't gonna do anything for you but kill your car. Just be slow and save up like pissedoffsol said. Never use the excuse "I need a cheap part because I'm on a budget" because if you do that you will always be slow. If you don't have the money for the part you want then keep saving money. However if you can find a deal to get the same part for a cheaper price go for it :thumbsup:
