A "honda 2.3". Well that sure gives us lots of information. What engine is it? If you really know it is an easy conversion, then yeah go for it.

actually its probably not a vti and all non vti's have a SINGLE CAM but have 16 VALVES.
Vti's have Two cams and 16 Valves.

the 2.3 is a non vtec car so would only be a bit more powerful (trading a lightweight engine with a bit of power for more power but more weight)
the 2.2 engine out of the prelude is the one to go for if you want more cc's but its easier and cheaper to go for a vti engine (either out of a 1.6 vti, 1.8vti 5 door or getting the integra engine-all very similar engines)
