What would be better in the long run, i have a buddy telling me turbo's take alot of money to keep it running smooth? And swapping to H series, thatd be alot of cash cause idk how to swap it my self. What would be worth the money?

for daily grind, h22 is cheapest way to go, motor can be had 500-1000 and you can reuse your stock transmisson and all parts. its pretty much drop in replacement swap.

as for turbo, proper kit going to cost 1500-2500 depends on how much power you want to make and how reliable you want it to be

H swap or Nitrous. I would slap a 75 wet shot on it if I were you and be good to go, but I see you have a thing against nitrous so that leaves you with doing an H swap.

How many miles on your F22? Is this a daily driver or weekend/fun car? H22 would be great for a daily, but F22's do love boost...

H22 is the best way to go in accords and fun for just being a daily driver. I've driven one once and it's actually pretty nice

F22 turbo son!
stock...180whp & 180tq with 50trim
560cc evo injectors (or dsm 450cc) 92octane
easily all day long, with larger turbo you could get into 250-270whp easily.


I'd keep power under 230ish and give it to the wife to drive daily... who the fuck said turbo cars are spendy to maintain? it's only spendy if you keep replacing/fixing cheap fittings, lines, which is all avoidable.
