Default Is there ANY good reason to choose an SI Prelude H23 over a VTEC H22 Prelude?

I'm confused, I think I'd enjoy a H23 more. To me the H23 sounds a nicer note (deeper, richer) than the H22. It kinda makes want to buy an SI Prelude over the VTEC. What do you think? Is it too much of a compromise to drive a non-VTEC Honda?

your going to want VTEC with that car for sure. H22 is all potential man. id go with the 22. youll be down about 30 horses if you take a 23

personally i prefer the h23 its easy to swap an h22 head and hotwire the vtec through the dash but the problem with the 23s is they LOVE to overheat and pop head gaskets all day long
