Icon12 h23 block, h22 head. for turbo build.

okay so I've seen this question I asked hundreds of times and I'm not asking if its doable from the research I've done i see that it is. the reason why I decided to go this direction is because my head is shot, and I'm having a hard time finding parts for the h23 head. I'm not looking to gain VTEC because I don't need it, if I wanted to do that I would just buy it h22 motor and do the swap. I would be looking for a bear head so I can build it the way I want it, cams, valve, valvesprings, gides, and seats. then have it ported and polished.

I have found the valves for the H 23 head but that's about it. I can't find better Springs or retainers. so if someone here knows where I can get all the stuff to build an H23 head let me know. as I said in the title this would be a turbo build, so my compression ratio is not a concern of mine I would prefer 8 to1up to 9 to 1. im looking at 20 to 25 pounds of boost (reason for not needing/ wanting VTEC). Yes i will be going through my bottom end. and running a standalone EMS

l plan on doing this, but im looking for positive input and or other ideas. my goal on this build is 300-350 hp. this isn't my first time doing mods like this, so i am aware of all the other issues that can arise. however Hondas are new to me, and i want to get the most out of my prelude. i think i have a good platform to work with. it's a 95 by the way.

thank for any input on this.
