I am debating between fixing up my H23 or going with a JDM H22, I am very leary or CA smog laws, and I am debating whether I want to spend over 2500 on a new engine or get a fully built engine for about 1800. Here is a list of what I can do with the H23. Anyone else have any suggestions? I plan on doing engine mods right after I get my rims and exhaust. I am not looking directly for speed, but I would like my car to be a little faster and reliable for daily driving.

SAFC
Arias Pistons and rings 10:3 compression
Port and Polish head
Darton Sleeves
Crower Regrind Cams

Well for one thing, jdm h22a's are not smog legal in california anymore. If you want an engine swap, you've got to get a usdm one.

i am wondering the same thing. build up the h23 or swap for the h22. right now i am really leaning towards the h23. its cheaper and i can do it one step at a time, which is more finacially obtainable. here is my goal for the end of summer:

header
jun valvespring kit
skunk2 retainers
darton sleeves
pistons
crower rods
crower cam gears

any suggestons for me?

No number after the engine code on the block. Jdm's are H22A's, usdm's are H22A1 & H22A4's.

What ever happened to the rumor that crower was going to start making cams for the H23? I need to call them since they are local
