I agree, I bought an accord because i didnt want a civic. The accord is a more comfortable car. You can make an afford fast, you just have to be creative. There arent as many parts as for a civic or integra, but they are out there. Then everyone says swap the engine and get a h22. If I wanted to go serious power, I would rather keep the f23 and build it. The f-series engines are much better suited for turbo applications. I would rather spend a couple grand on building an egine, than swapping out for another stock engine, and only gaining 50hp. I know, youre gonna say that the h22 is a better engine, but if you really wanna go for some big hp, its not cost effective to spend thousands , to lose displacement, just so you have 2 cams. Believe me, h22's are nice engines, my bro has a 2k1 lude. but you can build a f series angine too, its just a little harder, and you have to do your research. There are people running over 400hp out of f22 and f23 engines. the longer stroke, and larger displacement are a good place to start. like the old saying goes, theres no replacement for displacement. youre spending extra money for a smaller engine. If you just want to say that you did an H22 swap, well thats fine for you. Me, I have 24 months till the engine gets pulled for a major build up. sleeving the block, porting and polishing the head, bigger throttl ebody, new pistons and rods, knifedging the crank, dropping the tranny off at level10 for a complete build up. slap on a t4 ball bearing blowdryer, a big plate-style intercooler, water injection, larger fuel injectors.and an ecu, forget about all the piggyback boxes and crap. they can only do soo much. but , like I said, thats just me. for my plans, its just not woth the extra money on a swap, to lose.1 liters, just to gain an extra cam.
