    yes the h23 will fit just the same as the h22 or f22.

    what is wrong with the motor in it?

    nothing at the moment but since it has so many miles on it i want to start to rebuild one or have an h22 shipped here just in case this one shits out on me.

    even though it has so many miles on it. by the time i get done upgrading everything that i want to, it will be close to the cost for the new engine...

    here is what you need to think about.

    newer f22 300
    newer f23 375
    low mileage complete h22 swap 2450 shipped

    build f22 (2550 or so give or take on selection or parts)
    sleeves 900
    pistons 450
    rings 200
    rods 400
    arp harware 400 (for every arp bolt stud etc you will need)
    new gaskets 200
    bearings etc will also need to be included.
    i only suggest building the motor if you plan on boost or going for an all motor build other wise if you just want a stock motor and dont want to spend much money the f23 is a great option. they are cheap and are easy to swap in. it is obdII so you will need buy a conversion harness (75 bucks).

    or if you want to spend some money the h22 is another good option

    a20 is whats in the car. youll have trouble putting any newer engine in it.

    post other questions in a new thread, not in someone elses.
