    anyone know if the h22 gasket would work on the h23? i know the major differences are places for vtec hard ware oil and what not. if this doesnt work anyone know where i can get a thicker h23 gasket?

    the only way to get a thicker headgasket for a h23 is getting a copper gasket from SPC, then you have to oring the block, i had the same problem, i just used stock, wiseco requires .040 piston to valve clearances but i have had no problem running 10-15 psi

    i read in honda tech that a guy took a h23 block and his buddy had a h22 head with bent valves so they put the head on and the oil lines lined up and so did the bolts....if u want to mini me swap a h23 i suppose its easy? so if that all lines up right the head gasket should work!!! here's the website 1996 Honda Prelude Si - Modifications - Honda Tuning Magazine
