Need some help with my Lude's info!

So I've been stressing over my Prelude (which I've had for around 3 months now).

I can't seem to figure out if it's VTEC or anything!
And the internet isn't very helpful :P

So I found out it's a h23a1.
And the VIN is JHMBB22500C20XXXX

So it's the Jap h23's?


Cheers in advance, brothers.

You have a run of the mill USDM Prelude Si. No VTEC.

It's like God is cumming in your face. But instead of cum it's just pure euphoria. That's basically it.

Re: Need some help with my Lude's info!

I've had a ton of fun with the H23A1 im on my second and yes it is buildable but at a price, and it also depends on if you want boost or if you want N/A if you go N/A I think the easy route says swap an H22A and the hard route says up the compression ratio and cam it or go all out and stroke it. If you decide to boost resleeve and decompress the engine and get forged internals and make sick HP and TQ what ever you decide dont forget to TUNE IT CORRECTLY!!!! personally i want to rebuild my h23a1 and go for N/A performance I like to go against the grain dont get me wrong VTEC is great and all but nothing says HA HA like beating a H22a with your built non vtec motor...and roasting 1-4 if you desire
