I dont know much about H-series, but I recommend dual valve springs and titanium retainers. I would go ahead port match and port the intake then port match and port and polish the exhaust.

well i sold the head and am shipping it back to VA. oh well. i plan to buy the complete swap from Hmotors.

that way ill get everything i need. i figured it was cheaper and easier to swap the block instead of the head. with the money ill be making at Bud. ill get my car paid off and the swap by spring time.

<OK BACK FROM THE DEAD>

I GOT MY BLOCK!!







Darton Sleeved H23a1 block. machined a H22a4 (55mm mains) crank for safer high rpms. It's a bare block, except for the water pipe, oil cooler, & oil squirters. I also have the crank & a H22a4 girdle. 89mm bore.

then whats the point in my build???

i want more tq than the h22 or h23 can make. put them together you get more tq less hp then h22a,1,4 but more then h23. the average specs on the build using stock parts: 175hp 169tq. thats the point in a h23vtec build.

i'm not really sure, I don't think you know what you want to do.

who cares how much power someone made w/ their h23vtec build. you'll make way WAY more than that with a strong block, stock h23 head and lots of boost.

is this going to be an all motor or boosted block, if your not boosting, nitrous or using high compression pistons how are you going to make any real power to put those darton sleeves to use???

I do see your point, it just doesn't make sense to me.

you don't need a vtec head to make gobs of power with boost. by going to a vtec head you're just making the whole process more complicated and more prone to problems.

if you want to boost, get good rods/pistons (since you already have a sleeved block), slap on the stock head(maybe ss valves to deal w/ extra heat) and put on the turbo kit, tune it and easily make more power than you need.

out of curiousity is your car automatic?

well if they made good aftermarket parts for a h23 head maybe id think twice. but sence nobody like the h23 they make jack for it.

plus the head swap doesnt make it more prone to problems. after all im just making the H23a. which is a h23 with a vtec head. they put it in euro R accords.

its not as complicated as it sounds.

my car is CURRENTLY an auto. i talked to hmotors about a complete swap with out the motor. they said they can meet my demand and lower price. so, after i get the motor build and put together. ill buy that and start work on the tranny. unless i decide agianst the H tranny and bolt up a B series or D series tranny to it.

what aftermarket parts are you looking for? off the top of my head I know crower makes cams for the h23.

it might not have any problems at all, but putting on a stock head is going to be simpler and probably cheaper.

its your money and time, i'm just trying to give a suggestion on how to make the most of it. good luck.
