    with that motor and your basic standard bolt on's you should hit 13's easy, I would say high 13's low 14's till you learn how to launch the shit and drive it.

    not sure, which to go with. Both can be made to go fast. I am sure that the b16turbo would go nicely also.

    Yeah if you ever want to do any auto x you probably don't want to go with the h22. So i would say go with a b series like 92b16vx.

    Get the H22, I got one in my 95 Coupe, and as a matter of fact, last night I did two corvettes and i dont know how many Mustangs, the guys above are right, ur gonna have problems hooking up until you get some bad ass tires and until u figure out how to drive it, Dont f*cking waste your time on a b16, a stock H22 has almost the exact same torque as a B16 has horsepower, go with the big monster and play with the big boys, read my other post for more details if ur interested.

    1994 Honda Prelude VTEC 7.2 15.1
    1995 Honda Prelude VTEC 6.7 15.1

    thanx j3521, a appreciate the info ...so now would u recomend puttin the h22 in a hatch or a coupe?. i have the option of both so im not sure what to do yet. i like the hatchback alot more but im not sure which would handle better.. so you dont really notice a huge differecne cuz the stock honda engine i believe weighs like around 225 or so and the h22 is like 385 isnt it?...ive heard alot of suggestions for integra front springs...do u think its needed?..im new to the h22 idea..if it was a b16 it wouldnt be a problem but its kind of a jump so i wanna make sure i do it right the first time. thanx for your info man. take it easy

    I honestly couldnt tell u a hatch or a coupe, of course you know by now, I have a coupe, but when it comes to the suspension, it was brought to my attention when I did the swap to convert to Integra suspension, I said lets see whats it like, and then maybe ill change over. Right now Im contempt with stock, but as soon as I go to my next stage of enhancements, which include, Skunk2 cams, springs, retainers, and valves, and hondata S200, I will be swapping to Integra Front suspension and brakes and I will also be swapping to integra rear suspension and 99 Si rear brakes; but since your just barely starting out, I would say go ahead and get the suspesion change for the front and if u can get the brakes also, that way u wont have to go back later and risk the possibility of an accident

    any car or motor 1996 and newer is OBD2, 95 to 92 is OBD1, and 91 and down is OBD0; OBD 1 is definitely easier to tune and play with than OBD2, that is why I went with it, but I am not saying OBD2 is bad, there is just a little bit more work involved when you start tuning the car. I would suggest OBD2 motor, block of the EGR and cancel out the knock sensor and use a OBD 1 computer, u will have to repin the distributor, but when u go to tune your car to reall tweak out the extra power, OBD 1 will be easier on you
