I’m 15 and bought my first car around half a year ago. Super happy with it, however i’m interested in swapping my h22a4 with a newer low mileage one. My engine right now has 220k miles so should I not bother with a rebuild? I have around $2,500 saved up and have 6 months until I get my license and I would like to have the swap done by the time I get my license. Would an H23 fit with relative ease? Would an H22a4 be a better option? Appreciate the help in advance!

An h23 swap wouldn't be too difficult from what I've read, but you would lose vtec. H23a1's don't have it, only a special blue top version from Japan did and they can be tricky to find. I personally don't think that swapping in a different h22a4 would be worth it either, cost effective wise. But that's just my 2 cents. I would go with a new gasket kit and maybe a new timing belt and water pump, then call it a day as long as you don't find anything else wrong with it
