Hey guys I decided to go ahead and post my h22 build. I picked up the h22 a few weeks ago.

I got me a engine stand last week and decided last night to break the motor down and dropped it off at the machine shop today for them to hotwash and check everything out.

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g394/superclown13/2011-05-18_11-11-27_748.jpg

The stand was cheap but works well for holding the h22

Heads look good I think new vss will be the only thing that will be replaced in the head

Upon head removal pistons were caked with deposit but cyl walls look good to me. The deposit is probably normal for hi mileage engine.

I got carried away and didn't take any other pics upon removal. However I will post some more of what it looks like when I get it back from the shop tomorrow

Even every low mileage engine i have taken apart has alot of carbon build up like that . The only thing you need to worry about is the wear ring around the top (after you clean the caarbon back). If you plann on changing the stroke you need to make sure there isnt a lip there or it will break a ring . If you stayed with stock stuff this wouldnt matter because the rings would never go past that point .

Looks good let me know if you need anything . If someone has a h part for sale odds are i know about it.

i dont like h22's either. but if the build thread has pics and good info, im very interested as well......

I honestly didn't expect many of you to care anyway. I have gotten the feelin that h22 is like the black sheep of honda swaps. I am going to put it in my 97 ex coupe. My goals are modest for the most part. I would like to hit 300 hp but more likely shooting for about 220-250 range. This is going to be my daily driver so im not boosting or anything.

I was waiting for results on the engine for what I was going to do. I got the block back today and they said everything is within standard specs if you guys got any suggestions of what I should do on the bottom end im all ears.

However the head is bad and they are going to have to shave it and do a valve job on it. Im thinking of going with a set of stage one cams skunk springs vitons vss. Im going to get a auto to manual tensioner and the blaancer shaft delete. I am possibly thinking about having the heads port and polished but not sure if that is needed. Will post some more pics when I get a chance.

People in Atlanta LOVE h22's. It only takes the for sale and all motor section to tell you that. H series are definitely not the black sheep, hell I run a d16. But anyway, we may not run h22's but that doesn't mean we don't like well done build threads. I'm looking for more pics and keep us updated on your progress. I'm sure h22 jones will have ALL the information you need, and they say his dad is a port god, so if you're going in that direction you might want to contact him about porting your head and also general h22 information.

Thanks for the tip im new on here and was not even aware that his dad did head work I've talked to h22 jones a lil bit. My h22 statement was because I've looked up so many threads where everyone was so negative in regards to the h22. I will def post more progress as soon asi make some. I gtta go online and order some gaskets and the other parts for the heads.

220-250 h2b isnt that hard .

balance shaft removal kit (You have it ordered)
h23 crank
h23 rods
type s pistons or your factory ones arew fine (the difference is 11.6 -12.1 compression so your choice there )
nice set of valve train and a set of stage two or pro 1 cams will get you there (yes i could have said pro2 but no need here and the drivability is nothing like the stage 2s)
A ported head will help you get the most out of your cams and give you a very nice power band .
Also you will make more [power with stage 2s versus pro1s and get better gas mileage (stock primarie lobs ) . The only difference is you will lose hp and tourqe bellow vtec which honestly is a good thing in this kind of build trying to dailey it . Unless you want to barely touch the gas and smoke the tires .Kinda aggravating when it gets that touchy on a dd.

I have heads laying everywere and there is not alot of vtp clearence using this setup so get with my dad before you pay alot of money to get your head fixed . We may can just swapp it out with a ported and polished one and save you some money . Text me if any questions. 478-808-9122

Thanks I will shoot u a text. My 2 most hindering factors at the moment is enough to kill any build plans which is time and money. However I know as well as anyone in this game u got to pay if you want to play. I have already gave the go ahead on getting heads rebuilt however the guy at the shop said mine would be a week out before they could get to them so if I find something that works before that I will just get the head back and use what parts I can off it.

Here are some pics of the block it cleaned up quite nice now im trying to figure out if I wanna stay with stock h22 pistons or go with some larger ones since they told me they cup walls are fine there was no need to hone them.

looks good still scotch brite the cylinders please .

Is there anything special I need to do? I don't wanna mess anything up? Do I just run the scotch bright over it until its shiney. im guessing rinse with water, dry then apply something like wd40 to keep it oiled up?

h22 jones
05-25-2011, 11:58 PM
its the shine you want to take off lol. Go by any paint supply store and pick up some fine scotch brite . Clean each cylinder real good then dry scotch brite it . This is not a hone and you are going to realy have to scrub just to get the shine off . If you put wd40 on it the scotch brite is so fine you will be there for years trying to do anything lol.

TattooedFish
05-26-2011, 01:03 AM
I have been doing some reading and I have came across several threads that they are using "gunk" with the scotch bright to do honing?

I know you said this wasn't a hone I just thought I would ask about this as well.

justnprsh07
05-26-2011, 01:16 PM
Coating looks good in it already just get grey scotchbrite pad "fine" and give it a little rub.... Nothing hard maybe a little soap and water wouldnt hurt or wd-40 but dont half to use either...

You can do h22 rods on h23 crankbut half to be very careful... One compression goes up and p2v clearance goes down

Im sticking with h22 crank since the crank in the engine is in excellent condition. I may go with different rods / pistons

Also if you my setup im curently working on so I can play with these allmotor guys is...

K24 crank 99mm stroke
K20 manley rods
H22 90mm 13:1 pistons
Rlz ported head
Supertech valvetrain
Either web or ferra roller rocker setup
Custom intake and exhaust
B16 tranny
Quafe lsd
4.7 mfactory fd

Those things are already in the works not sure if its going in jimmy jones old hot rod or a 2001 2dr insight

Also I know where a complete h22 bottom is with h23 crank, h22 pauter rods, dart replacement sleeves, 90mm 14:1 wiseco pistons, and balance shaft eliminator, if you decide to get serious with it but wouldnt recomend dd 14:1 comp

a guy on honda-tech had the 14:1 90mm and i got some 13:1 90mm h22 pistons but mine are especially for the high comp 99mm stroke k24 in a h22

but a buddy of mine did buy the ones off honda-tech.... he is doing h22 crank, eagle rods, 14:1 90mm pistons, ferrea vt, ferrea valves, stock ported head????, pro3's, custom header and intake mani. killing it with stock ported head but he is doing a budget build...

The 2nd part of that statement seems to make sense. Not sure about the 1st though. I'm not a Expert, but sometimes running too big of a camshaft for your setup will actually hurt you, right?

If you dont have the head where it will flow enough for the cam then it could hurt... I dont think so for the pro3s in peak hp even though I think pro2s would produce more in mid range on a stock port. But all of skunk products are produced for stock heads, porting would help alot but its not gonna hurt it to do pro3s on a stock port like it would if you went to a high lift roller rocker setup. We did some research first and came up with the fact that go ahead and go pro atleast it will be there and eventually we can send a stock head to rlz

The motor will make power as long as it has enough compression it just want be effecent.

justnprsh07
06-06-2011, 11:27 PM
effecent as mpg or hp and tq curve? bc its gonna be a weekend warrior and dont think he is worried about anything under 5k or gas mileage since its gonna be running q16 all the time?

h22 jones
06-06-2011, 11:50 PM
i just meant this build will not max out the power of the cams . In other words he might even make more power with a smaller cam like a pro2 . As long as his compression is high enough the motor will make power and run good no doubt . Im just saying that cam would be better for a larger displacement engine that needs more air but yes it will make power .

Both have 4.4 finals and are stock. I do have a brand new still in the box phantom grip (lsd) that i can install in either. Probably 500 on gsr or 600 on b16 . If you want the phantom grip add another 200 and ill install it.

not to sound "wet" behind the ears as I am but whats the diff between the gsr b16 and ls tranny?

h22 jones
06-07-2011, 11:56 PM
The b16 is the lowest and what most people want because it makes your car faster although some people hate the hight fifth gear so they have the higher geared ls fifth put in the b16 trany. The gsr is the in between the b16 and ls in gearing . It is also a good choice to people that want to be fast but dont want that low a gear . ls tranny is what most people buy when they cant offered the other two lol. It is also a good tranny just alot higher in gearing and would kinda defeat the purpose of going h2b lol.

Just a lil update I got a phone call from the machine shop about the head apparently whoever ran the engine previously had bent the valves on the exhaust side most likely due to a broken timing belt. I just for new valve guides in the mail going to drop off by the shop tomorrow hopefully they can get on it and get it finished by the end of the week

Hey guys just to shoot you a little update. Work has been busy (which is good more money Woot) downside is not had much time to fool with the engine. I did however order me a gasket set, plan to at the end of this week order new main/rod bearings, and im still trying to locate a set of pistons. Either going with mahle, or nippon's. I would like to be at the point of having the bottom end put back together with in 2 weeks then I can concentrate on putting all the external parts back on the engine.

I am missing a few bolts here and there so Ima have to deal with those one bolt at a time maybe make a trip to fastenal once I figure out what sizes I need for whats missing.

I also need some more dowel pins for the engine. looking for those. im almost wondering if it would be cheaper and quicker to find a complete junked bottom h22a just for the hardware lol

A few weeks after my tuck my car jumped time and screwed up my d15b so the pressure is on to finish my swap. Work will pick up for me tax time and I will be able to finish it if all goes well I anticipate to have my swap done by March or April so stay tuned sorry this has drug out so long

Been over a year since I've posted. I think this is the longest build in history ever but I still got all the parts I've collected. The hatch I was going to drop this in was traded for a ef because my hatch was giving me issues and needed something steady. Well that was 4 months ago and my zc in the sedan slung a rod and now has a hole in the block.

Initial plan was to daily the ef and find a eg shell when the time and money was right but now I'm left with a ef shell and I would either have enough funds to buy a nice eg shell and have to save for the rest of my h2b parts I need but I've decided I'm going to h2b my sedan. I don't know why but its my favorite Honda I've owned out of my ek coupe eg hatch and now ef sedan.

I did receive a couple more goodies in the mail the other day so what's a post without pics???

Well with buying a house and a couple of financial ups and downs I'm doing ths best I can. Trust me I want this build finished as much as anyone but lack of funds+ little time + not much help = taking forever I don't live at home with mom n dad and I didn't come from money so I have to work with what I got but I will try to update this a lil more

I had a few setbacks last week went to pick up oil pump from machine shop and the balance shaft delete kit didn't fit it properly. With some help I figured out a way to make it work but after thinking about all I got invested in this I'm just gonna get a new one when I can. One of my main caps also got broken on bottom side where the dowel goes in so its at the machine shop getting fixed as well.http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/04/17/yra7y8aq.jpg

Since I am between waiting on getting ordered parts, parts getting repaired , and saving dough for the oil pump I decided to go ahead and start prepping my bay for a full shave / tuck.

Last night started removing fenders, front bumper etc..etc...

Slowly getting her stripped

Couple more parts removed

I learned 2 things today I never noticed I had a sway bar until today when I was sitting in the bay (bonus) and I'm def getting a cheap sand blaster this weekend I just can't get into some spots and the putty stuff they used on the seams was put on my car by someone who didn't like there job very much lol so its def gotta go .

Picked up a sand blaster this morning did some light sanding and grinding still a lot of areas just can't reach and this will make light work. Hoping to get some welding done on the bay by middle of next week

Been working all day on the engine bay. I think this part is hardest part so far. Got a friend coming over to do some welding tomorrow and someone else is coming over this Sunday with time permitting I'm hoping to get it at least to primer.

Had a buddy come over last night and help do some more welding and grinding on the bay

I was showing him the PO6 ecu I was chipping when he says u mean P28 I said huh ?

He said look at the code on the board .... sure enough 37820-P28-A02

I did a double check on the case I pulled it out of and it said PO6 on the case.

I got this ecu from pulla part when initially I was looking for a p28 and had decided the p06 would work just as well. Just thought it was funny that I ended up with the ecu I was looking for on accident.

I'm going to close / delete this thread soon and start a new one when I actually have something that's worth seeing I will make a new one since this one isn't generating much interest but on a ending note paint arrived earlier this week going to try to get the bay finished and lay down some primer this Sunday
