    if i can get a h22a for a good price do u think that i should just get cams and header or would it be ok to deck out the motor and get a turbo for it or is that to much power for the front end of the car

    in actuallity the H22 only weighs 30lbs more than the B20A5. putt a 30lb kid in your car and see if it makes a difference. whoever you herd from that says it will handle like crap is just assuming. you can find all the info you need on 3rd gen ludes at preludepower.com

    call the junkyards and find a B21A1 head. slap that sucker on your B20A5 block and your cr should me somewhere around 8.86:1. then you'll be able to boost atleast 10-12lbs on your stock bootm end. i personally don't like boost. so i'd go with B16A pistons in the B20A5 block among other things. bump the cr up to 11.2:1. and get it tune.
