We swapped out the existing H23A which had just had $3,000 worth of head replacement done. The crank bearings lasted a couple of weeks after the head was done so we decided to replace the whole thing.
Juli, Alex and Patrick picked up a H23A with 200,000klms, from Casino NSW in December 2011.
We swapped the motor over the Christmas break. The replacement engine is great. No smoke (checked at night with a torch), runs smooth. No crank walk.

Prelude Project Part 4 - Removing the Engine Time Lapse
The aptly named Prelude has always been a symbol for great things to come.
Honda has long used the Prelude to showcase their latest technological
developments. Remember Honda's four-wheel steering system, designed to give
drivers better control in tight corners? It first debuted on the 1988
Prelude. In 1993, the Prelude was also one of the first Honda's to receive
a VTEC engine, first introduced in the 1991 Acura NSX. In 1997, Honda
continued this tradition by showcasing their new Active Torque Transfer
System (ATTS) in the Prelude Type SH.
The Active Torque Transfer System is designed to give the Prelude
rear-wheel drive cornering ability, while retaining the wet-weather
benefits of a traditional front-wheel drive car. The system works by
monitoring the car's speed, steering angle and yaw rate to determine the if
car is following the driver's intended course. In a tight, fast corner the
system works by increasing torque to the outboard front wheel, which in
turn increases the vehicle's yaw rate, giving the driver better steering
response. Basically, it neutralizes understeer for those times when the
corners get a little too tight. What will they think of next.
All Preludes are powered by a 195-horsepower VTEC engine that
cranks out 156 foot-pounds of torque at 5250 rpm. Base models are available
with a manual or automatic transmission, but if you want the high-tech Type
SH model, you better like rowing your own gears; it is only available with
a five-speed manual gearbox. The five-speed manual is a carryover from the
previous Prelude, but the new four-speed automatic features a Sequential
SportShift that allows drivers the option of selecting their own gears,
similar to a Porsche Tiptronic. Base and Type SH models get standard
four-wheel antilock disc brakes that pull the car down quickly from the
Prelude's estimated top-speed of 140 mph.
After receiving harsh criticism for the previous-generation Prelude's funky
interior, we weren't surprised to see that Honda took a conservative
approach to the dashboard layout of their new sports coupe. We were,
however, disappointed to notice that they took an approach so conservative
that when seated behind the Prelude's steering wheel, there is nothing to
distinguish the car from a late-eighties Accord. Come on guys, you can do
better than that, can't you?
Despite the interior shortcomings, and the much-maligned headlamps, the
Prelude is an outstanding sports coupe that offers the latest technology at
a reasonably affordable price. If you are a gizmo hound, or you simply love
to drive, this car must go on your shopping list.

Confused's Prelude VTEC Rebuild
Following an accident in October 2006, I stripped down my 1996 UKDM Honda
Prelude 2.2 VTEC, and fully rebuilt it, using a 1994 JDM 2.2 VTEC, and made
a few modifications along the way!
Full details of the rebuild can be found on PreludeUK:
