I have to start sourcing a ls transmission soon so I can do the auto to manual swap in my 2000. Still on the fence about what to do with my 98......dont know if I should keep it h22a or swap in my gsr.
I like the way you think, especially being that I already have the gsr.ill put the word out to find you an LS as for the other one leave the H22. Its a heavy motor but can make some good power if done right. I think if it was my h22 id find a GSR and after finding the GSR id pull out the H22 and sell it and toss in the GSR. like i said light motor and you keep the B18 series to the true form of the car.
hey hope you guys are all well. Im doing ok havent been doing much on the teg. need to get things in order so that i can start. need to order my replacement motor mounts. hows ur build coming along ? i also have to look for a daily driver to replace my current one that is falling apart on me.what's up guys been a bit hope everyone's good.
I have to figure out what I'm going to use to fix my rear quarters. everyone has been telling me to get eg coupe rears apparently they workhasport mounts to drop the motor in and a few other things but i want to address the areas that are gonna be hard to get to once the motor is in like engine bay clean up and since im doing that might as well do the undercoat with POR-15 in the wheel wells and the under body and rear and front bumper area. This is more of a treat the areas that are more subject to rust and clear the surface rust .
In all honesty though how does the h22 feel in a teg? I've only ever had gsr engines before not sure how much of a noticeable difference there will be. make sure to post some pics of your progressYeah mine too lol, that's my new issue with the new mounts since it sits closer to the front now . Even though it doesn't interfere with my rad fan it's still uncomfortably close. I wanna move the radiator but needa save room for my intercooler so we'll see what happens this week/weekend when doing the turbo setup

So honestly I've raced several B series builds and driven some also myself , and I feel like the biggest difference is the torque. In low end , 2-5k rpm it pulls much much harder than a GSR. The longer gears in the h22a1 are also much better for staying in boost longer once I get that going. The extra weight also feels good in the bay as the integra is an amazingly designed chassis as far as control. Basically I'ma H guy for life now haha. Lotta people go H2B but honestly I like the long gears for freeway comfortability, and its got enough low end torque that you don't need to be in VTEC to feel power.
As far as the build im on Instagram @teggy_h22 , and just got the car running smooth again after snapping that motor mount and the axles haha. Next step is a e85 all motor tune on these 1000cc RCs while I build up my turbo setup. I Wana find another H or F to build meanwhile also , outta the car.
