well there wont be a JDM valve cover for it. i dont think they have SOHC motors in Japan. just take it off and use high temp paint or have it powdercoated. i have mine painted white and it looks great. did it myself for $6

I got an f23a4 motor and i was wondering any mod for it don't hear much about pplz fixing this engine up. Also where can i find a replacement valve cover for this engine I really think the ULEV-VTEC in greeen isn't a nice touch to the car. Any aftermarket one or JDM valve cover?
I think there was a JDM F23A in the 1G Odyssee but aside from that they pretty much only have DOHC motors.

Valvecover: What you could do is get an F23A1 valve cover ('VTEC') and do what 98Accord did. It'll look much better than stock.

Engine fixup: Before I demodded my F23A4, I had:
-DC Sports 4-2-1 header
-Iceman CAI
-APEXi WS exhaust (still have)
-APEXi VAFC
-Stillen FPR
-AEM Pulleys
-Skunkworks Cam Gear

So you can do a great deal of mods. Just know that the power potential is not as great as with the DOHC (B & H series) motors.

You could do even more. Im getting a street strip head from JG engine dynamics this summer. Well not getting a new one but getting mine worked on. Then a guy around town is going to port my intake manifold to match my exhaust ports and bore out teh throttle body. Gonna see what this f engine can do. haha
