    I think you would be happier with an H22. Why settle for SOHC when you could have DOHC.
    How far are we gonna take this? The question is not how far. The question is do you pocess the constituition, the debt of faith to go as far as is needed.

    Looks like we're both wrong "Mah", there is indeed a JDM DOHC H23 VTEC. It only came in the JDM SiR wagon's. It has the same 200 ponies as an H22 but less torque and a lower max rpm, 6800. Also, they only came in Auto's and the wiring harness is differnt from all others.
    So, yes this motor actually is real. Yes, you can swap one into your accord; however its not as straight forward a swap as other engines would be. A regular 5spd manual Accord tranny will bolt up to this motor without any problems, except at the ECU. You might look and see if any other ECU's could run it on Hondata, shouldn't be a problem there just more money involved to essestially have the same thing as a H22 without all the extra problems to worry about. So the real question now becomes, are you doing this for performance or to simply be differnt? If differnt thats cool, its just going to cost a little more in the long run; usually does.
