Icon5 H23 to H23A swap

Hello fellow JDM members. I have just went from the S40 Volvo to a 1995 Prelude Si. Right away I'm starting to see what makes Honda's so great. So right off the bat im doing research and im caught between swapping my 2.3L H23 to a DOHC H23a VTECH Japanese motor pr the H22. Suggestions between the two and i heard the trans is compatible with all H and F engines, but I just want to confirm be4 I buy it.

Re: H23 to H23A swap

There is no 'H' in VTEC. Never has been, never will be. Looks like you really haven't done much research.

And yes, all H and F series transmissions are interchangeable.

Thought it would be obvious that a RWD trans won't be compatible.
