    Anyone performed a conversion on their 92-96 H22A1 or 97-01 H22A4 to Prelude Type R or Accord Euro R H22A7 specs? What are the items needed inside the motor (ie. cylinder head and block) besides the TB, intake/exhaust manifold?

    First off, you probably mean Type S. No such thing as a Prelude Type R.

    Second....WHY? Don't let the specs of a certain engine guide your upgrade path. Set a goal for your build/power requirement, and go from there. Spending the loads of cash for OEM Honda parts to gain a couple of horses is the wrong way to go, IMHO.

    My mistake, always equate the red DOHC VTEC valve cover with Type R spec'd, which the H22A7 originally has.

    Took an awesome ride in a friend's modded Euro R, which led to this inspiration.

    Anyway, spending loads of cash!? I was thinking nothing much needs to be changed, your words proved otherwise. I might reconsider.

    If you want some pep look into a new valve train and some cams. If you want some more go a mild turbo.
