300-400hp all motor will be very expensive and once its done will be unreliable. The most maxed out H22s are making 300-350hp.

This is with 12:1 or higher compression pistons, individual throttle bodies, sleeved blocks, 89 or 90mm bore, stroked cranks as high as 100mm.

For a build like that you are talking about $10,000 or more.

Just put nitrous on it. Easiest, cheapest way to add 75 hp (fairly) safely

More than likely, you can get a turbo kit for 2-3k. A stock H22 can't handle all too much boost safely.

I mean you can look up the Dyno sheets yourself for different applications. But for example a guy with these mods:

JDM H22A, Crower Stage 3 Cams (316 Duration), Ferrea Valvetrain, Mahle 11.5/1 Pistons, Crower Max Light Rods, Micropolished and Balanced Honda Crank, STR Throttle Body, AEM Fuel Rail, B&M Fuel Pressure Regulator, RC 440cc Injectors, Fidanza Cam Gears, Motorvations Cam Seal, Hytech Tri-Y Custom Header (2.5in Collector), K-Teller Exhaust Piping with Magnaflow Resonator, and ES Oval Muffler (All 2.5in), Cusco Oil Catch Can, Fluidyne Radiator with FAL Fan, Unorthodox Race Crank Pulley, Fidanza Flywheel, ACT Xtreme Pressure Plate with 6-Puck Unsprung Race Disc, Hondata S200 (Jim Helbing of Motorvations Tuned)

only made 226whp. all motor H22 really isnt worth it in my opinion. Now K series on the other hand.............................

turbo is the way to go if you want power... thou, as live2rice said, it will cost $$$. you need to get the internals ready to withstand the stress you will put on the engine by boosting... i spent around 2.8-3k and didn't touch internals...

10lbs would probably be pushing it. I wouldn't run more than 6-8lbs.

I think you will be surprised how much a 75hp increase is, I know I was when I did my H22 swap. With just bolt ons you can get them up to almost 200whp.

I say you just do the swap, put some bolt ons on, and then if you decide you want more power you can take it from there.
