    We picked up an Accord Type-R for a friend, his been complaining that its using a significant amount of oil, possibly up to a litre a week with everyday driving and abit of VTEC at the weekend.

    Then engine is tappy and im going to do the valve timing but is there anything else on the H22 i can look at to find out if thats the reason its using so much oil. Its only on about 110k with full history.

    Thank in advance

    Must be biblically smokey, a friend of mines b16 used a similar amount and that looked like a steam train.

    If not then leaks I guess

    yep is pretty smoky especially when he hits VTEC. Should valve clearences solve his issue?

    Aha, might help but I can't imagine it'd solve the problem. Smokey-ness is pretty much guaranteed to be valve stem oil seals. 

    Worst case could just buy himself another engine for a few hundred

    A litre a week i would say its more likely to be the rings along with stem seals, get it compression tested.

    Rings are supposedly fairly common on these, had to replace the rings on the engine I bought for my ATR.
