i think NA engines are bad ass just because its a little more work and not as many people do it, although it will probably cost a more money it will also be more reliable(more than likely)...it will at least be less maintenance. if you're just wanting power then FI is probably the easiest route to that(other than nitrous) but then again turbos can be fairly maintenance heavy if you don't like to take care of things.

Speed costs. How much are you willing to spend?

Depends on the buildup. There are so many factors that you could practically write a book on it. Also depends greatly on the application.

Look at it this way, some drag H22s are putting down 650 HP, and some touring car H22s are (were) putting down 300 HP NA.

Who knows about SC, I haven't seen anything besides the JRSC dyno at 238 HP.

I am sure you could take SC'ing to the extreme as Larry's Civic is pumping out 450 HP out of 1.6 liters with an SC.

Well what do you want to do with it? If you want just the maximum amount of power, go turbo....

7K US? That could get you to around 300whp with a decent turbo setup, 250whp VERY reliably and safely. That includes engine build-up, fuel upgrades, turbo, J&S safeguard, etc.

For N/A? I think you'd be around 200whp, maybe more.

I'd stick with N/A. Yeah, it's expensive, but I'm really looking to keep a smooth torque/power band. The H22A was designed to run N/A and I think it's good to keep it that way. FI is fun of course, especially when you can easily blow by people who like to dis Hondas, but I'm really in it for the build up. Modifying is a project, and I don't believe in "cheating", heh heh.

BTW, I have no intention of getting the JUN kit.
