    I am wondering what parts can you swap out with the f23 motor. I want to keep the f23. Can I swap any h22 parts with it? like intake manifold or the valve cover?

    Im not sure, but Ive heard that the intake manifold swaps, but if you can't get the whole manifold, the throttle body will swap. The valve cover won't swap because its a dual cam.

    I heard about swapping the H22 head on the F23 engine base... but they said reliability is very poor because the F23 engine base isn't made to support high rpm like the H22...

    Sincerly, you'd better to swap the whole engine if you want something reliable, decent power and a lot more fun.

    ok, so the head will be no good, but I might be able to swap the manifolds?
    anything else that will work?

    you can get an extra 20-30 hp by port and polishing your head.

    Intake manifold, throttle body, oil pans. That's about it besides obvious stuff.
