    The obvious choice is an H-series. Go for an H23 if she wants to boost her car, or an H22 if she's just looking for some n/a power without building the thing up.

    It was the same way for the 94-97 Accords/92-96 Preludes. The Accords have always been heavier than the similar-gen Ludes. My Accord weighs in at 3000 lbs from the factory (EX with all the extras), and I think the newer Accords MAYBE weigh 3200. Not that big a difference. If you're really worried about it, drop in an H23 and boost it. But don't waste your time with the F-series if you want power. It won't happen, believe me.

    i was thinking H22 boost, but n/m. what about H23 block with a H22 head plus boost or would that be a high ass compression ratio? I'm more of a B series man myself so I don't know about all that.

    I think you'd have a high CR, but I'm not sure. Don't know too much about that hybrid. Maybe try the link in the pinned topic at the top of this forum?

    It's as legal as any head swap. It depends on where you live. If one head swap is legal there, all are.

    So does that mean that NO head swaps are legal in Texas? I wouldn't believe that...Calesta was running a CR/VTEC.
