Are you on Facebook? There's a 22 inch BMX group that would probably be very helpful. Did you try the contact form 9n the Faction site?

Faction is credited with (re)starting the 22 inch wheel bmx (craze?). GT did make a 22 inch wheeled bike in the 80's but it never caught on.

Faction created their first bike, called the Zeitgeist in around 2010? (my dates are probably off but that's a rough time estimate)

That frame turned out to have really bad angles so they came out with some sample frames they called Amero MK1. They gave these to team riders and made adjustments to it before releasing the Amero.

They are based out of England and the company was started by two brothers.

as far as parts, you need 22 inch wheels and tires. You can use 20 inch tubes just fine. I'm assuming you have the fork? if not you'll need a 22 inch fork as well.

All the other parts are the same as any other bmx bike.

WTP, Fit and Revenge all make 22" wheels. I think the pinned Revenge or Fit wheels are a bit cheaper. S&M makes 22" forks. You'll want the widemouths if you want to run 2.4" tires.
