Money is not a problem? What do you do for work?
Anyway, there is alot you can do to the internals to make a pretty mean beefy f22b1. There are stroker kits, light weight rods and pistons, balanced crankshaft, performance cam, titanium oversized valves, stronger valve springs, light weight flywheel, port match and polish head and manifolds. That is at least what I plan to do to mine in future. But be warned, with the cost of all that sutff you could easily turbo your car up to 8 psi on stock internals. Stock internals that are at least healthy.

They got what you want.

yeh... if u want power strait from the start u have to decide 1 thing Vtec or not... then u have to decide Turbo or not... if turbo... START WITH A TURBO! u cant build a NA engine for power then bolt on a turbo and say DONE! u have to build the engine for the turbo, Cams heads internals lighten stuff balance bring the NA compression down. u build it totaly different for NA cars... u build up the compression put high lift long durration cams in (preferably Vtec cams because NA Vtec pwns) dish the pistons stroke the engine forge everything mill the head port and polish run long runner headers CAI stuff like this. the whole idea for the 2 cars is comletely differnt as is the power that u will create, HP to HP a N/A car will dominate a FI car any day. the power is steady and smoother personaly i build for NA my car is gunna hit the 300 HP mark with just a few though serious mods

That's what I am doing. I turbo'd my car's f22b2 and picked up a 2nd f22b2 (for a $100 from someone on this board) that I'm rebuilding from the ground up as a turbo motor. I get the best of both worlds. A motor that will be able to take some serious boost and a turbo accord running low boost in the mean time.

Everyone else has some good suggestions. The stock crank can actually handle some high hp, so I don't consider it to be a weak point in these motors. The rods are probably the weakest link.

First decide if you want a turbo beast or an NA beast. The two paths will be very different, like legion said.
