it is possible to run around 400hp with a H22A, The motor will need to be stripped out first. The are lots of brands out there you can use. HKS, Greedy, Phase, AMUSE, Spoon. I have listed some brands below theres a whole heaps more out there Start with you need Engine:(WISCO, JE, CROWER) *forged pistons, rings and H beam con rods, *it would help to get a block guard to strengthen the cylinder walls. *Get a completly blueprinted and balanced bottom end and sandwich all that with a ported and polish DOHC VTEC Via a steel head gasket probably be a good idea to use aftermarket Studs to make sure the motor doesnt fall apart *You will need better Cams, cam gears and you will need them dailed in properly Turbo:(HKS,Garett, Greedy etc) *The Turbo you choose is the most important part and its something you will have to discuss with the mechanic, Bigger the Turbo more power you will get at the sacrifice of turbo lag and driveability. If you just want straight power and your car is going to be used in high RPM most of its life then go big. If you want driveability then this is where it gets complicated. *Once the turbo is done make sure its mated to a proper intake and through an intercooler *Get an electronic boost control to keep things in check *To help that use a 45mm waste gate employed with a Good Blow off Vavle Fuel:(BOSCH) *Get a high flowing fuel pump *Adjustable fuel pressure regulator *uprated fuel injectors Exhaust:(RPS) *to run 400hp i think maybe 2.5inch or 3inch job should to the trick Tune: *Aftermarket ECU(LINK OR GREEDY) the most important part of engine building is the tune. Your car will probably need to spend a few hours on the Dyno to unleash as much power as it can Transmission: *To get power to the ground use an integra type r tranmission along with and LSD(May need to re-build it) *You will need a heavy duty clutch(exeedy) along with a lighten flywheel Suspension: *Not too sure on the suspension my friend used Koni platform adjustable shocks with springs *A strut brace will probably be needed too(MUGEN) Brakes *you will need to upgrade these see if 282mm type R Brembo rotors will fit

what are you asking exactly? Parts?... Performance pistons, sleeves, bigger fuel pump, bigger injectors, thicker gasket, Hugh flow headers, iridium spark plugs, high flow catback, I would get k20a or k24a2 engine if you want to turbo bec I didn't see one person with h22 turbo yet that I know of.
