    It can be done, but the time and money you spend on doing it are going to seriously outweigh just dropping an full H22 longblock and tranny into the car.

    Wrong. It's SOHC. Came in 90-93 Accords. No Stateside Accord has ever seen a DOHC engine from the factory.

    interesting... sounds like the whole ZC not being a D-series story.

    Not all Preludes were DOHC's. The 92-96 Prelude S had an F22A1, which was SOHC non-VTEC, just like the F22A1's that were in the 90-93 Accords. Same engine. Trust me on this one. The only dual-cam F-series engines that exist are the F20B in the JDM Accord SiR and SiR-T and the F20C in the S2000. Anyone wanna bet?

    you are correct sir...about the h22 head on the f22...i have actually heard of it being done...it is soooo not worth it though...first of all, you have to use the f22 tranny, because i am almost positive a h22 tranny will not bolt up and the f22 trannys suck ass...second, it is pretty hard finding parts for the f22, as far as the bottom end goes...

    Right, it can be done, but there's no reason to, other than to say "Look how cool I am with a DOHC head on a SOHC block".

    The F-series (aside from the F20C) and H-series trannies are interchangeable.

    Please show me a picture of an engine bay with a dual-cam F22. I'd love to see one, since they don't exist.

  20. Why can't people understand that if you are going to call someone out on thier info you have to show some proof. Either show us an F22 that is DOHC or shut the fuck up




    i dont see you proving anything... so why dont you shut the f... up
