    There really isn't such a thing as "easy" power. Bolt-ons can get you closer, though.

    Crank horsepower doesn't equal wheel horsepower. At the wheels, a stock H22 is going to put down around 150-160 horses...

    Please tell me how any of those things add horsepower...

    some people consider freeing power up, adds horsepower.
    if thats the case, strip the interior.

    That does nothing for adding horsepower. All that helps is the weight aspect of it.

    If your car has 150hp and you take 300lbs of stuff out of the car, it still only has 150hp.

    but you do have to consider the power to weight ratios and such

    I'm aware of that. But I was pointing out the fact that it still doesn't add power. If you send the same car down the track two different times--one with interior, one without--the numbers aren't going to be spectacular enough to make someone want to gut their car.

    Do what I did. Turbo it. I get 221HP & 220TQ @ just 6 PSI on a dynapack dyno. And this is with a cat on a 2.5" Apexi exhaust w/ a Hondata S300. Once I switch to 3" I will up boost to 8 PSI and most likely get another 20-30 HP :)

    thanks for the response man, but more interested in N/A upgrades, not really into turbo for h22, this engine strikes me more as allmotor builder, leave turbos for b18b n gsr,:D

    Build up the bottom block, (darton M.I.D sleeeves it), stroker kit (better displacement), Stage 2 street cam/ gears, valve srpings and retainers, Larger exhaust system 2.5-3" piping.
    Vtec should scream like no other. Someone correct me if i'm wrong, this should make somewhere in the 230-240 neighborhood.

    So it sounds like the H22A drivetrain eats up 25% of the power. So you would need to make like 260HP to the crank, to get 200 to the wheels. damn, our H22s SUCK! I thought FWD drivetrains were supposed to be more sufficient than RWDs? Also I thought the shorter gears of the H22A tranny (the m4....whatever) would make it more efficient, too.....I guess not.
