thanks everyone for your information

thanks everyone who replied to my question. i wanted to know because some guy with a 93 prelude said he had a F22b, which he claims is a jdm motor.....i thought the true jdm motor was a H series motor. well i guess i can go ahead and spank him with my true 96 h23a ride. again thanks for everyone with the info.

lots of wrong info above
the f22b was used in 4th gen lude from 92-96 (obviously), its a jdm engine that produces 160hp and 148 ft/lbs of torque. its basically teh JDM version of the h23a1. Its dohc and non vtec as well.
they can be purchased for around $450-800 and will work fine on a non vtec ecu from a USDM accord.

I agree. F22b DOHC is a JDM engine from Japan. Accord/Prelude engine...which is made for accord and prelude..em...DUH!! Basicly the only different is the top which is a h23a1 from the Prelude SI...I believe......the botton is a f22 block which fits in all honda accord but of course....it could fit in any other car with some modification. Its pretty quick....as a matter of fact....I have it in my car!! HAHAHA~! I just got done with the swap...it was too easy. It doesn't have Vtec....but its JDM..basicly thats the point.
"Accord/ Prelude F22B DOHC~ 160hp~148ft/lbz"

f22b

i know for a fact it is a jdm motor....i was looking around on ebay and saw one for sale....i was wanting a jdm h22a but for that much less money for the f series, would it be worth it and would there be enough aftermarket support....i luv turbos.....and i hate making your own kit cuz no one else makes one.....be nice to save 1800 though....that could buy a lot else....and what all is needed to swap it over....axles, ecu, tranny, wiring, etc

If you plan on running turbo ....I think you should go for the f22b but if your thinking about something more expensive...yet more popular..of course that would be the h22a. F22b average around from 400-800 (from what I heard I myself got it for 800 flat) very cheap...its pretty quick and runs great with turbo. I don't reallie know about the after market support...like turbo.....I heard you have to customize the turbo to fit into a 90-93 Honda Accord, if your asking about 94+....I can't say cause I don't know for a fact. But for a fact you can get the cam shaft and other items off from the 92-96 prelude si to fit into the f22b basicly just the top part. I still don't know much about this jdm engine.....but as soon as I found out more..I'll keep you updated.

90 non-ex...doesnt say anything on back or title

its a 90 model and as far as wanting to turbocharge it, i just wanted to make sure it was possible without a lot of trouble....do u know if u can get headers, intake, exhaust, etc(jdm or us) for it.....im getting more and more interested......i luv the price...the difference would almost buy a turbo kit....i bet a turbo f would emabarass a few jdm h22a's.....at least i would hope so....i just wanna be fast enuff to get into trouble.....

Haha...its possible w/o too much trouble. F22b wid turbo will do fine....actually you will probably embarrass some of the accord with h22a for sure!! Hahaha:D The 90-93 accord header, intake, and exhaust will be fit perfectly into the f22. You can use Prelude parts as well. Good luck with your swap if you get one....but the engine is a deal.....better then the single over head cam. Oh you'll get into trouble with turbo...:eek:

By the way, I'm running the H23 ecu. It runs the motor richer and has the knock sensor, just in case I get any detonation. I ran the F22a (stock accord) ecu for a while but after putting the H23 ecu in it ran richer, and seemed to have WAY better topend. I am actually going to be selling my turbo manifold and downpipe soon, its an fmax manifold and downpipe, for the H23, and it will fit the F22b DOHC. I was gonna go turbo, but decided to go H22a w/H23a tranny intead. I found a good deal on just the H22a (little over 1000 bux) so I'm hoping to have that within 3 weeks, and installed by march or so. L8r all
