Is there any other difference between the h22 here and the type-s h22 motor there, other than the type s has 20 more hp?

I think i heard that the type s has more torque and at lower rpms (not sure though)

also is there a difference in transmissions?

what i'm getting at is, is it worth it?


actually i have one more question, is there any difference between the 200hp motor here and the 200hp motor there?

please help me i am stupid:confused:

also any dynos would help too

i mean does it have just 20 extra hp with all that stuff (cams, pistons, ect) or is there any differance in torque or how usable the power is ( is there more low end power and stuff like that)? ? a dyno comes in handy here

is it the same as putting type s stuff in a usdm h22 or even is it the same as putting on bolt ons that create 20 extra hp to a usdm motor

and do the transmissions have different gear ratios?

:confused:

i kind of expected that but i was just seeing if people knew info or had dyno sheets from the internet.

Also, thanks for trying to help, (not rying to be rude) but i just want to know the answers to my questions, the other stuff posted was stuff i already knew.

which is the better engine to tune up cost wise?
I would go with the JDM h22. The type-s is MUCH more expensive initially, and for the price difference between the motors, you'd get better gains in putting the money toward improving the regular h22.

Basically, if you bought a JDM h22 and spent the leftover money you saved from buying a type-s, it should give you better numbers.

Yeah you'll almost definitely get better numbers out of an engine you improve yourself. Only nice thing about the Type-S though is that it wasn't built by someone in a shop, it's straight from Honda, so it's probably a bit more reliable than aftermarket parts.

Ive driven a type S and there aint much difference to my JDM Vtec.
Little quicker but not much.
to tell you the truth. type S feels like it has less torque in the beginning but it picks up pretty quick after vtec. lude feels like it has shorter gears because of advantage in torque and a redline of 7400. type -s has 6 gears, and feels like it pulls a tad harder on the highway. if you race a type -s with a JDM h22a, it should be dead even or lude will pull a tad harder. usdm h22a, prepare to be left about a car length around 3-4 gear, cause thats where the type- s started inching away from me :( .. good thing is im getting a s2k so hahaha
