    Hey i need advice on putting a turbo on my 94 accord f22b1 vtec. Im on a tight budget and i want to boost hp. I already have the basic upgrades (cold air, cat-back) I first thought about a swaping for a h23 but realized i would probably just be wasting my time. Then i looked into a h22 but realized its kinda pricey so now im wondering if i should put a turbo in. Any advice?

    you need to be more specific about your tight budget

    well i saw that a h22 with all the swap parts would run about 3k but im not looking for anything crazy fast maybe 180 to 210hp. I was just wondering how much an ok turbo would cost and if it would be worth it

    Depends if you're looking to do it right, or if you're willing to save money by putting a hackjob on your car and living with your car being unreliable.

    In your position, I would save money and start with the H22 swap. It will respond better to bolt-ons anyway, and be more reliable than a cheaply built turbo F22

    Its really simple actually, you just need to search it up. It's been done countless times.

    You basically just need the motor and the ECU. If you want to swap over to the Prelude's transmission as well, you can, and you'll get better gear ratios, but it's not a necessity. You can bolt up an H22 to the Accord's transmission. You can reuse the stock mounts as well...
