I would go H23. Just like you said, cheaper, you don't have to mess with the Vtec controler, and with the aid of a turbo, both engines can have the same ammout of power.
Did the h23.........It's not worth the time. It is almost equivelent to the price of swaping in a h22a, plus you'll have way more fun out of the h22a, the wiring of the h22a is pretty clean cut not too much work. The h23 felt more powerful then my accord stock, but It didn't gain much still lost alot.Accord-ing2Me said:contemplating an h23 swap over an h22 swap. reasons being, dont have to mess with a vtec controller. also, im guessing i can get an h23 for cheaper. i know that the h23 has like 30 less horse then the h22 but im not too worried about that. i just want a moderately fast car. i just want my daily driver to have a little more balls when some punk azz kid in a civic thinks he is the fastest import racer in America. any input is appreciated. thanx
yeah it would be a serious waste to keep a auto on a h22aSuPeRaCcOrD said:I would put a fully rebulit H22 in my accord and swao the tranny form auto to stick cuz my shit is auto.
really? the place i looked at had the h23 w/ 156 lb/ft and the h22 w/ 158 lb/ft. the h23 did make it at a lower rpm, tho.cryogen97 said:a little thing called torque. The h23 has more torque than the h22. and torque is what gives you acceleration, not hp.
yeah true, but a h22a would be nice to turbo has well don't you think cryogencryogen97 said:93-96 Prelude VTEC
- 190hp @ 6800rpm & 158ft/lbs @ 5500rpm
97-98 Prelude VTEC
- 195hp @ 7000rpm & 156ft/lbs @ 5250rpm
I need to find the h23 torque again. I thought it had the h22 beat by 1 or 2 ft lbs and at a lower RPM
