Smile 1995 Accord Project

Hey guys i'm a new member and this is my first post so excuse me if it's in the wrong place or if there are stickies already in place for me to read which I didn't find. If that's the case, I have no problem with anyone simply directing me to the correct place.

I'm starting a personal project on a 1995 Accord and i'd like as much advice as I can get. It's my first project and I don't wanna mess it up. It's a 1995 accord with a f22b engine I believe.
I'd like to know all possible performance mods I can put in without having to worry about my engine blowing up basically, i'm not really interested in appearance at the moment, I'm mainly focused on performance. If anyone could also provide estimates on prices of each mod i'd greatly appreciate that too..

Welcome! and the post location is OK.

First you should think of the overall plan, goals, AND BUDGET. It's pretty easy for us to sit here & tell you to spend $25,000 on your car. And with an overall plan, you don't end up buying something that you eventually have to remove & throw out when you decide to get something else. Plan out the FINAL configuration, THEN figure out how to do it in stages if you want.

I agree with Jim. Goals are probably the most important, like daily driver, racing, etc. Then your budget is next. Finally, your skill level in doing the modifications.

Seeing your signature, the F22B2 is not the vtec engine. The automatic to manual conversion will be somewhat involved as there are a lot of minor items that you'd need and could start adding up the cost.

Okay so I'd say my goals for this car are basically just simple daily driving and casual street racing. I'm really just looking to have as much fun with this car as possible without having to worry about it blowing up. I guess I could also say, I wanna have more acceleration to about 150 or so but not necessarily a high top speed that I would have to sustain.

Also with regards to my signature, which engine signature am I supposed to be using then? The engine model is f22b-2100283 and the top says vtec so correct me please

That helps. My original question about goals was around a few things.

1 - know the rules of a racing sanctioning body. My brother had an old Z-car and did some casual upgrades. When he took it to an autocross, he had just barely exceeded what he was allowed to do in "stock" class & found himself racing against people with 15x more money sunk into their cars.

2 - you probably don't want to install a bunch of things & then later have to take them off because now you want something different. That's a very expensive way to reach the end goal.

That's not a USDM engine?
I think an F22B2 would say F22B2 before the hyphen. 210xxxxx is the block serial number not part of the engine type? I'm getting a little outside of my knowledge, but I think JDM engines don't have that last digit?

I won't be going to the track ahah. I just wanna be able to hit 150 relatively quickly on the highway. I hope that clears things up. I don't think i'll need to worry about having to take off anything(I hope) because the only limitations I wanna put on how much I boost is how much I can safely stress this engine without having to service tooooo often.
My current budget would be about 4000$US I think. Don't laugh at me if that's too little lmao just let me know so I can plan to save more.

The F22 loves boost as it has 8.8:1 compression stock and steel sleeves. 8lbs is generally the amount you'd want to run with a stock engine and maintain some reliability. With your set up the limiting factor will definitely be the automatic transmission holding the power over the engine.

The engine will be fine as long as you get a good tune.

Not sure how the automatic transmissions are geared but i doubt 150 with the auto. With the h22 m2b4 manual transmission(which is geared slightly lower than the accord transmission) 140mph was my max and that was with an h22 that could rev to 8,000 RPM not an f22 that is limited to 6000.

I'm planning on changing it to manual transmission , so that needs to be added into my cost as well
