rektilian is cool... so far.
Unhappy how much hp can an f22a manual transmission handle?

Hey, new to this forum. I'm 95% sure i'm buying a 1993 Accord coupe tomorrow that has an f22a tranny and f22b engine. My intentions are to buy it and do an H23 vtec swap on it, but will that 197hp be too much for the f22a tranny to handle? Would i need to get a stronger transmission for a swap like that or should the transmission be good?The tranny has a new clutch, new bearings and 165k miles if that info is needed.
And if it is strong enough for the swap, how much hp through mods could i put until the tranny breaks down? I was hoping to mod it up to 275ish...
Thanks so much!

Probably upwards of 400 hp for a daily. Most accord/prelude transmissions are built the same minus the ratios. Yes, it can handle your power goals

Honestly, I don't think anyone on our high horsepower list is using anything more than a stock transmission. The stock transmissions can handle more power than pretty much anyone will ever be able to use effectively on the street. At most, they'll need new synchros.

At approximately 700+ H and F transmissions typically need a cuff if the car hooks well. A cuff eliminates 5th gear and holds the main shaft and the counter shaft together instead of letting them separate. With tremendous power the shafts actually push against each other and eventually push apart resulting in "stripped gears" for lack of a better term.

Other then that they stay together as far as I know.

In other words I wouldn't worry about pushing the transmission past it's limits. It's very unlikely to happen. And not going to happen at your HP goals.

Seen one of these, was very cool to see. But DAM, if you don't have 5th you are on the track only as highway speeds would be pretty ridiculous with a H22 tranny in 4th.
