    I have an H22a engine on a Civic 92. I'm planning on installing Type S Cams and Eagle H-Beam Rods with Arias Forged 11:1 Pistons. A friend told that I have to install Sleeves on the stock block. Is that correct?

    If you want forged pistons you have to re-sleeve. Do a search about that and you will see it has been covered alot, here and on H-T.

    the h22 uses a metal in the sleeves known as FRM or fiber reinforced mesh. the material will not except forged pistons. so in order to get around this there are 2 options. Resleeve the block or go with the new mahle pistons that have a skirt coating that supposedly allows you to be able to run the forged piston in the h22 without resleeving. I personally have not herd any good or bad about these pistons i just know they are failry new to the market. Although i would like to hear some feedback on how people have liked them. Hope this helps. Also as mozz said do a search this stuff has been answered numorous times.

    The Mahle piston installation and dyno results are in the April 2006 Honda Tuning. Pretty interesting. Showed some pretty good results with some bigger cams.
