    my name is scott and i have a 96 prelude with a h23 in it. i just have a few questions about the internals of the the h series engine.

    i know they make type s pistons for this h23 but is there a differnce in compression with a type s usdm or a jdm or is there even a is it just a type s piston with no specification between?

    The phrase "Type S" refers to the H22 engine from the Japanese Prelude Type S. They're not after-market, they're OEM Honda pistons. Using those will bump your compression up a bit.

    And I'd forget the piggyback and look into a chipped ECU instead...
