Gas

Well the only difference in all the gasses is the detergents they use. Other than that its all the same!! I can't use Shell gas in any of my cars because the lifters rattle!! PB and Mobile or Marathon works for me!!

My Lude has never had nothing but 93 in it since day 1!!

its been my experience that mobil gives you the best mileage...we went from new york back home an hour south of roanoke, va...we filled up the gas tank in new york with mobil reg and made it 6 hours to virginia before having to fill up again..then we filled up at sheetz and only made it 3 hours before having to stop and fill up again..the last time we stop at an exon and filled up and still almost had a full tank when we made it home an hour later...only problem is there are no mobils near by that i know ofin southwestern virginia

stock for stock the vtec is faster but the h23 isnt slow at all...and yes on the si you need to use premium fuel to prevent detonation and causing premature motor failure
so turboing a h23 makes no difference? h22 can still match its speed?

from what ive learned on this site, most people reather turbo an h23 over the vtec h22,thi is because the h23 stock is a 2.3 litre over an h22 2.2 litre, and i believe it's just easier/safer to turbo a h23

however, if you know what your doin and are excelent in the firld of turboing, i would imagine you could push more out of an h22

UTFSE

AHHHH!!!!!!!

VTECH's use electricity. you plug it into the wall. depending on which one you get, they range from the 2.4ghz-5.9 or whichever. please use the search engines, there are plenty of threads relating to premium gas as well as turbo and h23's.
