Header problem

Ok so here it is. I have a 1993 Prelude Si. The VIN number says Im supposed to have an H23A engine but it was swapped out before I bought it with an F22B1 engine. It looks like only the bottom part was swapped. I want to put headers and a better exhaust system on my car. Do I have to buy headers for the F22B1 which is an Accord Ex engine or can I buy Prelude headers?? Also the research Ive done shows that the F22B1 is Vtec but there is nothing on the engine that says it is. Im confused on what to do, someone plz help.

Re: Header problem

pics always help us

and the engine code is on the block, to the left of the header, to the right of the starter, above the front motor mount.

for a frank motor like that, you would buy a header for whatever head you have.

Re: Header problem

is the head DOHC or SOHC? pics would be best. like nick^ said the header needs to match the type of head you have

Re: Header problem

would a 2.2 header fit on a H23? are the blocks the same?
