I believe so.

The H22 is a very fast platform and could do very well in HC2!

The prelude can do good in H2. A few things you might want to do down the road to make it faster:


Use a S2K throttle body, over the OEM prelude one. It's a little bigger and still legal.

Get a good 5 angle valve job done on the head

Use stiffer valve springs so you can rev to 8K RPM (H22's can make good power up there with good flowing intake and exhaust)

Get a good LSD, and a 4.7 FD or 5.1 FD (depends on your tire size) in the transmission


when you get up to speed you might need to get a bigger brake set up. I started cracking the OEM rotors every 3rd or 4th track day (real bad cracks all the way to the other side of the rotor). I went to a 2000 acura RL rotor (larger mass) and it fixed that problem.


Good Luck!
