    I just chipped my ecu on my 93 prelude h22a, and it has a rev limit of 9000. I was wondering if anyone knows if and how much I can rev my stock internal h22a to without risking serious damage. I ride it out to a little over 8000 but i really do not wana blow the sucka. Anyone know?

    buy an oil pressure gauge if your worried about blowing it, just buy every damn guage they make and learn how to read them. im not saying u cant blow it while watching the guages, it just gives u an idea of how badly your driving your car :D i need some gauges.

    Ummmm, I'd say that's a bad idea.

    Don't rev it past 8400 or so. The JDM engines rev to 7800, and the USDM engines rev to 8200. No need to take it any higher unless you're running more aggressive cams.

    ...and you have the valve train to handle the higher revs (which you don't)

    :werd:

    Not to mention, I'm not sure how well the H22 bottom end responds to higher revs.
