Default Is it possible to put a turbo in a f22a1 engine?

I own a 1992 honda prelude f22a1 engine.and i was wondering how hard would it be to put in a turbo?what do i need?where can i get the parts at?how much do you think it will cost?is it possible?and how can i keep it from ruining my engine?Thanks so muchWell i don't have enough to do a swap to an h22 so i was kinda just wanted to deal with the f22 i have now i'm only 15 so thats another reasonalso this guy said The turbo and manifold he used was actually for a 4G63 which is out of a 1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse and the Manifold has been Redrilled to fit the F22A1 Head.can anyone give me info on that?

Nope.You can fit a turbo onto a manifold, which will attach to the side of the engine.But a turbo won't fit inside an F22a1, which is what you asked.And if you're planning on adding a turbo to the engine, then it's a complete waste of money. The F22 is vastly under powered compared to the H series engines, and isn't designed for a turbo in the slightest.Say hello to a complete rebuild of the engine, new pistons, rods, crank, etc. Fuel management, boost management, everything. And since you're starting at 125 hp....lets say you gain 150 hp. That gets you into the area that an Eclipse turbo would have with about $800 spent on it. And you'll have spent around 9-10,000 for a proper job.You will ruin the engine. Once you go turbo, you can't go back. And an engine not designed for a turbo, generally can't last long with one. A year or two of easy driving, and then you'll be rebuilding it.

-if you have no experience working with cars, very hard; otherwise, not too bad-turbo, intake piping, manifold, downpipe, exhaust, BOV, wastegate, high flow fuel pump and injectors-online; ebay usually works-about $2-3000-yes, it's possible-get it tuned

vipassana is a complete jackass. the f22a is probably the most underated honda engine out there, simply because stock output is weak.http://bisimoto.com/ has tons of parts as does f22part.combisi also has the fastest time for a unibody car. a single cam, n/a, F22.

You sir are retarted, the F22A1 is the best prelude motor to tune because it is the lowest compressed with its 8.8:1 compared to the massive 10.6:1 H22 compression. Now which is better for boosting still maybe the H22? Well the F series motor has been known to last and was voted top ten motor of the year 2 years in a row. So this F series engine is known to built
"bulletproof" and has small compression which engine do you think is better?
