H23 bluetop swap

I am intensly thinking of doing an h23 bluetop swap because my engine has 200k very hard miles and is starting to show it. I have been searching trying to find what all is needed for the swap and overall it looks like pretty cheap swap, but nearly everything i find is for a 4th gen. Was wondering if anyone has a link or a list of only 5th gen parts or mods that need to be done. Thank you.

Re: H23 bluetop swap

Im about to do the same swap in my 5th Gen. All you are going to need is the H22a4 oil pump with the crank sensor, crank pulley on the balance shaft, intake manifold with all sensors, the dizzy and your stock ecu.... I saw a thread on preludepower with the pics and all on how to do the swap and it is very helpful... I would also recommend getting a manual tensioner for the timing belt...

Re: H23 bluetop swap

do those same parts apply for a F20B swap into a 5th Gen?

Re: H23 bluetop swap

Im pretty sure the F20B should work the same way but I would recommend getting a H22a or H23a vtec cause they both come with more torque than the F20B with the same hp..

Re: H23 bluetop swap

i've considered it but i'm going for the 2.0L N/A build. I don't need to be the fastest just want to have a fun car, i like the high revs of the F20B so it should be fun.
