Just out of curiosity, is it possible to turn the 2.2L 4th Gen Prelude S Engine into a 2.2L VTEC Engine? I mean, without an engine swap?

~Peace :confused:

Hey, it's not my motor man.... hehe. Hell no, I already have the H22A. I was talking to another kid that is looking to get an engine swap to the H22A. I was just wondering if he could swap the head and do it for cheaper. Thanks for the input though man.

~Peace :)

Actually

I got in touch with several guys who've done the h23 head swap and they said that you just need to yank out the oil control orifice (just pulls out btwn cyl 2&3) and you can actually install oil jets in there for about 90 beans. But still i ain't gonna fug widdit. I just wanna turbo.

That S model engine totally won't go for the swap from what I've heard. Single cam base just wouldn't go.
