    Hello everyone from Europe! You have quite nice forum here!


    My question is: What`s the difference between H23A1 and H23A3?

    I have this H23A3(from 2.3iSR euroaccord 1993) motor and i`m replacing all bearings, piston rings and seals.

    Are those engines the same except the code A1 or A3?

    My brother is about to visit in New York in few weeks, so i don`t have much time to order those parts to his hotel.


    Thank you for your quick answer

    I think the a1 is dsm and the a3 is euro. Now the american h23 is non v-tec. And 160hp. The euro h23 is with v-tec and comes with 220hp. And thye parts are not enterchangable with out major modifacations.

    You`re quite right about that SIR(V-TEC). But my euro accord is 2.3i SR, there`s a difference. My friend has that SIR version.

    I need piston rings(std.), main bearings(std. 50mm), rod bearings(std. 48mm), upper seal kit(complete), lower seal kit(complete) for 2 engines(i have 2 H23A3 motors under construction). Engines are for Accord CD7 1994 Coupe and Accord CB3 1990 Sedan.
