    we just put my h22a in my 98 civic ex and it ran fine but felt like i had no power in low rpm's and this morning on my way to work my car runs like shit and felt like i was driving with my brakes on. the car wouldnt go unless vtec kicked in and then it went fast but other then that the car felt like i was towing a tractor trailer. what can be wrong?

    ******UPDATE******


    When i wholeshot the tire will spin not even the whole way around and then the car bogs down and wont run smooth at allllllllll

    *UPDATE*

    check engine light is reading Code 12 Exhaust recirculation system



    could my timing be off on my car? we didnt touch the timing when we did the swap but do you sometimes have to adjust it?

    Please feel free to tell me what you think everyones opinion helps

    dude, i had the same problem and i dont know what the hell fixed it.

    I replaced the map sensor, egr valve, main relay, fuel pump, and got a chiped p28. One of those fixed it. Im willing to bet that it was the ECU though.

    from what i understand its a fairly common issue with jdm h22s. This is probably the 30th thread ive seen since ive been on the board.

    Just out of curiosity, how did you fit the H22 inside the civic chassis. I'm planning on going H22 in the near future.

    it fit pretty nice with hasport mounts all we had to do was dent in the left side 2 inches below the motor mount about a half inch for the trannys accessories could fit, other then that who ever says it wont fit just doesnt want to lose to you

    DO NOT drive on a GSR mapped p28.

    I hope you read this before you drive that....

    I had this problem with my H22A from hmotorsonline. Code #12. Replaced the EGR valve and it fixed the problem.

    I Reported A Missing Oil Pressure Sending Unit Sensor And Gave Me One New Free Of Charge And Reported A Missing Knock Sensor Free Of Charge. You Pay What You Are Suppose To Get! Good Luck Man!;)

    DON't find a chipped p28 find a default p28 and have it built especially for your setup to control your needs. GOOD LUCK!;)
