    You Engine is the Z22YH mate. Its closest to the Z22SE or L61. They all use the same block, the only real difference in yours and mine (L61) is fueling and the head work that is needed for it.

    Re the manifold I doet think they fit, most US 2.2's need the downpipe cutting and spinning 180. You'll fine the only manifolds guys fit over here are the dbilas and Piper ones, but then your talking around the £300 mark.

    cheers rushy it was just a thout lol as i was thinking if i could find a z22yh that had the big ends or that gone and build a project engine pos turbo it as i also found this

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWAX%3AIT


    then, some head work, exaust decat, and a remap or pos a stand alone ecu,would see some good bhp as from what im reading they dont seem to get big bhp out of them unless theres some serious wonga threw at them whats the most u have seen bhp wise out of a z22yh on a budget? bet it aint a lot unless its had a lot of work or money threw at it in witch case it prob wasnt worth it in the end lol

    You've got to remember you have a YH, there's nothing out there for it. There's plenty out there for the SE but not the YH. All you can really do is zorst manifold, cams and a map. You cant change the inlet manifold, head work has never been done to a YH so do you want to be first. If too much is taken out you cant put it back in again. The SE goes into limp if too much is done to the head. You cant turbo or SC purely because of Mapping with the Vec C. With enough money all this could be done but it would mean alot of cash. Bob over to the 2.2 forum mate and see if you can pick up a few ideas. Z22SE.co.uk

    No mate, the problem with the YH is the inlet manifold, if you want to put bodies, turbo or SC on your going to need specific manifolds. The problem with the YH is it has a variable flow manifold and is linked and altered by the ECU, you cant take it off or change it.
