LSx and V8 Mod
personally i think this thread is starting to fall off topic. No one said a v-8 swap is a bad mod and that it souldnt be done. the original point of this thread was to address the issue every 2.2 guy is sick and tired...the "put a v-8 in it" comment.
It seems like every time someone starts a thread about modding a 2.2, someone comes along and makes some remark about how much better a v8 is, and thats not what most people want to hear.
it isnt like the 2.2 guys are unaware that a v8 swap is an option to increase performance. we are aware of it and choose not to do it. its also about as original as putting a fart can on a civic.
nothing against v-8s, but please stop recommending them to every guy trying to get an extra 10hp out of his 2.2.
phil wass up man, i still pop my head in here to see whats up too. lonewolf was when this site first opened. everything he had is a mystery and probably didnt exist. a lot of bs runs aorund here as you well know.Yeah I remember reading stuff about lonewolf a few years ago, untill his truck was stolen and burned.
Then there was Superfriggencow that claimed to have similar times.
The two that I know that are credible are
Addler with the 2.2L turboed Sunfire and GoofyGuy which I am sure we all know about.
I wont disagree,I made reference to my doubts on some products namely tb spacers ,and yes there are many other brands of products that are engineered better and could produce better performance results.I was just posting examples ,not preaching gospel.s_man, there is performance and tons of thread relating to 2.2L performance, some of these are useless on 2.2L, such as
Airraid, throttle body space, does nothing but whistle sound
Bosch replacement fuel pump, NOT AS GOOD as this http://www.s10forum.com/forum/f105/inline-fuel-pump-installation-303943/
pacesetter header, Kamikaze header are 10000x better than that
splitfire plugs, ONLY Delcos or NGK plugs for the 2.2L for long lasting and maintain engine to run right than to cause problem such as Bosch platinums
