H23Accord is cool... so far.
Frankenstein lives!! H23VTEC headswap complete

OK, for all those who said it wasn't worth it, can't compete with an h22, and those who do it only do it cause they can...welll....I felt it was worth it, it can compete with an h22, and YES, I did it because I can. Ok...ok...I actually did it because my timing belt broke. I happened to have a jdm h22 head lying around so I figured why not.

H2s Vtec swap onto h23 block is complete. Pics will be up soon as well as a parts list of what was done and what was needed. I still have some things I need to work out since I am throwing some cels, but car runs smooth.

Props go to MRX for tuning, Jess for cartin' my ass around, Ivie for putting up with Carlos dealing with my project, Willy and Juan for really assisting in the headwork and installation, and most of all Wikked who assisted me throughout the entire buildup from getting parts, to doing the swap to just making things look pretty. Thanks again guys, couldn't have done it without you!!

lol.. all for the love... throughout a timespan of 3 weeks i put up with my family wanting to kick me out over this( something adam didnt know until he reads this) my gf almost leaving me.. and far most.. just drama.. in every aspect.. was it worth it? yes/no.. there will be another cb7tuner member that will get the WIKKED treatment very soon.. but i wont be as attached to his car as i was to adam's... anycase.. ill post pictures and mods list soon..

btw.. there still a few crimlins left to work out.. for example.. no vtec.. even so.. i got 10 buxs says this car takes a h22a prelude..

Thanks guys. It was a lot of work involved in a very short period of time (3weeks I believe) so it was quite an experience and quite a rush. As far as what all is involved in doing the Frankenstein, I actually did a lot of hw on HT and also on just the internet in general. Actually, on HT i met a guy that did the swap on his h23 lude and spoke with him via email about what all was needed and he assisted me a lot. I would recommend to first do hw on what is involved and what all is needed since it is already posted up. That initial hw may help you more than I can right off the bat since I don't quite remember every single part that was swapped or altered. After that, you probably want to talk to Wikked since he has more knowledge of engines than I do.

No, I am not holding out on you guys and not telling you how we did it. I am just saying read what is out there first and then come back and ask us because it makes things easier on everyone. I have no problem telling you how it was done although I am not as familiar with it all as much as Wikked is. When I get a chance I will try to dig up the web sites that I visited to help me and I will post them up on here.
