    i wanna but i need to do research :Grin: if my 106 sells well and my new laptop ill be ordering an s80 box and a kit as an early xmas pressie all for me :Grin: :Grin:

    mate youve seen the kit morf had it looks pretty damn simple tbh. just looks like a plate that you bolt to the block to give the h22 the b series fitting. a flywheel you get with the kit then the rest looks like nuts and bolts :Grin:

    nah not as simple from what i can gather the kiot is but apaz i need a new header?? loom ? and some other crap but i might be wrong , would be easier to diy it but if its relatively cheap ill get it done :Grin: hows your motor coming along?

    i got danielles old 106 for 20 lol and cost me 100 to repair :Grin: there going for 1800 to 2k atm lol

    Dude if your alreaddy running h22 then why would you need loom?

    It's a bolt on gearbox n flywheel, no harder than a clutch change I'd imagine!

    S80 is a fine gbox!

    And pros are you will be faster

    con is the cost!

    If your ok driving a car with stiff mounts, it's fine. Also, there's little small niggly bits that you might want, like a baffled sump. Some wires may also need extending..

    i just got a price from bisimoto for 1399 dpllars shipped :Grin: but im not that rich atm i gotta sell some more stuff first , i was tol;d i need to modify the header aswell and wiring ? i wish it was as easy as a clutch change lol , also got to replace shafts aswell then re -weld a plate over my big square hole that was cut for gearstick for h series gearin, i just need to know if its all worth it or should i spend my money on more constructive things like cams intake etc?

    for my setup im using a 4.4 FD gearbox, i think 4.7 would be too short. the h2b obviously reduces the weight considerably as the cable selector boxes are alot heavier than the rod selector boxes.

    going from 4.2 FD to either 4.4 or 4.7 will be a big performance gain as it increases torque. question is do you want to spend

    would be good to see some more h2b in the uk
  15. Gunter Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    buy a h2b kit then :Tongue:
  16. H22_Dan.. Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    yea i get what ppl are saying and i would DEF want one , but im trying to come to terms with spending a thousand on that well arond 2 thousand all in then maybe putting that 2g on cams intake brakes suspension etc ?? hmm

    The H2B kit helps the H22 put its power down as the original driveshaft angles are kept. It also helps with ground clearence.

    The H2B would be a better investment in the long run as you would be able to put more power down in a more controllable way.

    for me it was for the shorter ratio, the weight, and also being different :Smile: if your mounts arent too hard id suggest a balance shaft removal kit and a decent head setup. h2b may push you over 160lb ft with the right box, spend on the current setup and you could break the 200bhp mark.
