Best bet is to buy the short block, since he already has the head.
He's asking for pain and trouble. The car will be 15 years old before
he finishes. Cam? Yeah, there are a number of good mani's, pick one.
Pistons? Wait until you have a running engine hooked up to the rest
of the car. In fact, wait on any changes to the engine. It's an
engineering rule (which came from THE SCIENTIFIC RULE). Only change
one thing at a time.

You might want to take a look around the Honda-Tech forums. You'll find
more info concerning engine swaps/modifications there than you will
here.
