NO!! DO NOT confuse people by using the wrong engine codes!! A 97 EX will have an F22B1, SOHC VTEC. The F22B is JDM, and is DOHC non-VTEC.

Please be more careful next time, there is already way too much confusion over something so simple as engine codes.



EDIT: xczechboyx, 94-97 chassis codes are CD5 for 4dr and CD7 for coupe.

He's from NZ... things are different there :D

F22B1 is VTEC, and in the EX (as stated). 150hp... not really the best engine. VTEC in those engines isn't like VTEC in an H22.

F22B2 comes in the lower models, and I believe it makes 130hp. It's also not spectacular.

Neither motor is significantly better than the F22A1/4/6 found in our cars.


My friend has a 96 LX... I think it's a dog. It's not fun to drive at all. Just my opinion though.

You also have an H22. You know, just in case you forgot.

F22B1/2 accept boost pretty decently i would say. Quite a bit of people on HT have these types of motors boosted.

CB7 SOHC F22A6
