jdm H22: Turbo or supercharger??

I heard super chargers are the best way to go on a h22. Someone let me know, and what engine work should i do first(cams,pistons,etc.)?

in both cases whether it is going to be a super or a turbo charger, you would need to go for mild camshafts and low compression pistons in order to get the best performance out of both. However it is a little bit costy so i would go for direct bolt on super or turbochargers at 7psi it is safer and best specially if it is a daily driven car
personally i would choose turbocharging

you do know an h22 is one of the worst motors to turbo right? besides that, for get the cams and head for now and build up your bottom end with sleeves, low cr pistons and rods then you wont have to worry about using 12psi...... just a thought. also, i know turbos are bad A$$ but they will be more expensive(good turbo manifold,turbo,etc.) and you wont have to deal with the heat issues. im not saying thats what you should do but, thats what i would use in your case.

turbo or supercharger.......if you boost 7psi on either it will tear the engine in the same way, it doesn't matter........7psi is 7psi....or any other psi
h motors need new cast sleeves, forged pistons, and rods...to handle over 8psi safely....you can have the best tunning and crap done to it .....stock block, pistons and rods are stock parts and they just give up and that's it

and the other thing is that nobody makes superchargers for 4th gens.....
you could try using one off from a 5th gen prelude(same h22 engine) but you will have to have it custom installed and it's a bitch cause there's not enough clearance by the shock housing where the brackets for the belts are supposed to go

another thing is don't worry about the head.......for now at least.....it's not like you're going to build a n/a engine that would be reved higher and then you would need cams ans better springs and headwork stock head is gonna work fine with turbo or supercharger.........the biggest and most important part is to build the block if you know that you're gonna be going over 8-9psi.......and more
if you plan on like boosting 7psi and that's where you gonna leave it...then I would just leave the engine stock and as long as your have it tunnad right it should be ok........but 7psi at the most (on stock engine)

Aight, good looking out. The only thing is the H22 isn't in a prelude, it's in a 4th gen. accord, so would it even fit or no??

TURBO.
-with pretty low boost and proper tuning, no need to change internals...if you do want to lower compression, like everyone said, you have to also resleeve the block.
-there is no cooling option for supercharged preludes, unless you want to custom make one, so lb for lb, the turbo will give you more power with less parasitic loss.
-also, the costs will be somewhat similar for the jackson racing SC kit or a turbo kit, with the exception that the kit will be made to fit, while the JRSC will have to be modified....
-also, while you can increase supercharger boost by changing a pulley, it just creates more heat which you have no way of dealing with...with a turbo, you can increase boost as needed, so if you want to go back later and beef up the internals, you can just adjust the boost to match
-dont worry about cams unless you get some made for FI. if you're going to modify internals, do it all at once. the head can benefit from a porting and polishing, which can help prevent detonation, but it is not neccessary...just a plus.

basically i see no reason to consider a superchager
