You can't exactly just slap on parts like that. Civic TypeR pistons has a bore of 81mm. H23a block has a bore of about 87mm. There is a 6mm difference and that wont work. In a 2001 prelude, you should already have a H22a. Which will be more reliable than a H23 frank motor. Build on the H22, you wont be disappointed.

you need to do alot of research buddy. try Bseries pistons will not work in an Hseries motor. get some forged internals and boost it. or take the H out of the prelude and put it in a 95 civic cx
