Might need new engine.. What kind?

So i've had a few problems with my valves and my head and i'm told it will cost around $1000-$1500 to get everything fixed for my Lude.

UNLESS a simple valve adjustment does the trick and fixes the issue...

But if it doesn't then i'm probably going to swap the engine for one with lower kms because it'd cost around the same.

Have you guys ever seen someone switch a h23a DOHC VTEC? I've seen that you just need to move some things, but is there any power loss? Will it still be just as strong? I think there's more torque but what does that mean?

This is the engine I was looking at JDM Honda H23A DOHC vtec Engine Accord Prelude H22A F20B | eBay
