    i have a 92 civic hatch vx and i am getting a jdm h22a in two months,i want to go all motor and i am wanting to get as much as i can out of it. i want some ideas to get more out of the motor and make it faster. it will be a daily driver so i really don't want to go all out and spend like 10-15k on it plus i don't have that kind of money :unsure:. i was planning on port and polish,with all ports matcched, extrude honing the intake manifold, jdm type-s pistons,but that is about as far as i have gottign so far so if you guys could give me some advise i would be greatful.

    port the head to holy hell, get some big ass cams with valve train to hold them, bump the compression to 12:1 with a real piston, and i/h/e to flow this air, and some fuel mods to feed it, and you will make some good power

    i am wanting to keep it at 11:1 (jdm tyoe-s are) so that i can run it on pump gas, other than that i was thinking about the skunk2 stage 1 cams, underdrive pulleys, either the euro-r accord or jdm type-s intake manifold. i have no power steering and won't have a/c so that will drop some weight so that will help me other than that i am still not sure on what else.

    Don't get the Euro-R manifold. It requires extensive work and modification to make it fit. Get a Type S or hold out for the Skunk2.

    I'd advise going with the Type S pistons with Type S rings. They're a direct replacement, you can get them in a stock bore or .025 over for rehoning, and don't require a resleeve of the block.

    if you dont feel like waiting for skunk2's intake manifold and you're willing to pay $700 you can look around the internet for STR's Pro Drag Intake Manifold. but theirs a possiblity due to the size of the intake manifold you might have to alter the hood cuz its pretty huge.
