Honda H engine

Jump to: navigation, search

The Honda H engine was Honda's high-performance engine family from the 1990s and early 2000s. It is largely derived from the Honda F engine with which it shares many design features. Like Honda's other 4-cylinder families of the 80s and 90s, it was replaced by the Honda K engine. The primary applications of the H engine series were the fourth- and fifth-generation Honda Prelude, and the fifth- and sixth-generation Honda Accord. It has also enjoyed some success as a racing engine, forming the basis of Honda's Touring car racing engines for many years, and being installed in lightweight chassis (such as the Honda CRX) for use in Drag racing. The F20B, though technically coded part of the F-series family of engines, was basically a destroked version of the H22A. It was developed for Honda to be able to enter into the 2-liter class in racing.

DOHC engines


H22A

The H22A debuted in 1993 for use in the Honda Prelude VTEC as the H22A1. Versions of the H22A would be the Prelude's signature high-performance engine worldwide until the end of Prelude production in 2001. It was also used in the 1994–1997 Honda Accord SiR and 1998–2003 Honda Accord Euro-R in Japan and Accord Type-R in the UK and Europe (however different camshafts and a different intake manifold were used in the Euro R H22A). The H22A in the Prelude Type-S, CH6 Type-R and CL1 Euro-R came with the trademark red crinkle finish valve cover. Transmissions between all Honda F series motors are interchangeable (with the exception of the F20c and F22c, S2000 motors)

H22A4

  • The H22A4 is the designation of the engine used in the Base and Type-SH 97-01 Honda Prelude.

This engine was the only engine released in the US model Preludes, and these are designated with the "black tops".

H22A5

  • The H22A5 could be found in European Prelude VTi with "black top" and only Convert/hp

  • This motor was only released within the European versions of the Prelude and can be designated with the "red tops".

H22Z1

  • This is identical to the H22A1 found in AUDM VTiR and VTiR ATTS, but with an alternatively stamped block. All post '99 Preludes

received this block. There is also speculation that power was increased to 149kW(from 147kW).

H23A1

The H23A1 was an increased-stroke, non-VTEC version of the H22a, designed for the North America and UK market 1992–1996 Honda Prelude Si. It shared the same Fiber Reinforced Metal (FRM) cylinder wall liners with the H22a.
