Topic: How to keep a Honda F-series engine running (95 accord)?
Howdy! We're running a 95 honda accord with and F22B1 (VTEC) engine in it and we overheated the living hell out of it last time at Gingerman.
Admittedly, I think the head gasket was already cracked when we got there, since our race prep involved slapping in a roll cage and doing an oil change; but I've heard overheating is a common issue on these, so I'd like to be as prepared as I can be.
I will be swapping in a junkyard engine that we have lying around, and I figure some improvements may be easier while the engine is out.
I'm planning to replace the head gaskets before I put it in just to be sure, but do any Honda whisperers have suggestions for other things I should look at doing to this SICK whip? Doesn't have to be engine specific, open to the best and worst of ideas!
List so far:
- separate oil cooler
- heavier oil (15w-40 was suggested by another team, figured I'd try to find some synthetic)
