Default F22B Dohc Head Swap On F22A Block

Hey all. I just want to post up a video I made and other things about the dohc swap I'm making in the place of the sohc head.

I found a dohc F series head on CL from a jdm supplier.

Anyways, here's the vid. Don't mind my young *** I'm just being me,

If you guys didn't want to hear my babbling in the video, I took some pics for you.

Here is pretty much everything I need for the swap in one pic minus the head gasket.

List of parts and prices I payed:

- P39 ECU ~ $49.00
- F22B Dohc Cylinder head Obd II ~ $150 (came with idle air, injectors, and intake manifold which I am selling on eBay.)
- Goodyear Timing belt for 1988 Dodge Caravan ~ $6.95
- H23 timing gear ~ $20.00
- Head Gasket Kit for F22A ~ $40.00

The cam caps and rocker arms I got from an H23 head with low miles. It seems to work perfectly with the H23 cams, smooth as oil.

Removed valves and springs:

F22A head gasket from kit I got online:

All I got to do for this swap is change the timing gear, timing belt, ECU, and the cylinder head, and adjust the valve clearance. But before then I must put the valves and springs back in and have the head taken to a machine shop to get resurfaced.

I don't even need to replace the dizzy since I have in internal coil. Such an easy sway its not even funny.

I will keep you updated on this. (too bad I can't share this with the Honda-Tech forum since I was banned there.)

Well the head is at the machine shop to be welded and milled.... My machinist said it wouldn't be such a big deal to not weld it but I insisted he have his welder weld it.

My machinist is quite the character.
