  1. I have a honda civic 95 si hatch back.
    Swapped engine is H22a1 series with 5w-30 as the oil grade for the motor.
    I really want to have this engine or the car last as long as possible.
    It has after market stuff in there already
    -cold air intake
    -motor mounts
    Headers and mufflers
    BUT, was wanting any or all input on what I can do to keep it powerful and maintained as long as possible
    (Aside from oil changes and changing spark plugs)
    Any info would he awesome

    • Hi Christian! Sounds like a great swap! the best is to keep your H series properly maintained, throw in some magnetic drain plugs for your engine and transmission, they do wonders. As far as future mods I would highly recommend an H2B transmission swap which will allow you to bolt on a B series hydro transmission. It can really unlock the potential of your 2.2 VTEC!
