    Nice ride. I love that color (DEP), as I've got a 99 Accord Sedan LX 5 speed car myself. :)

    I've got 3 Accords here right now. A gold 2000 Accord sedan AT that my wife drives, my 99 DEP Accord sedan 5 speed, and my old 97 Eucalyptus green 5 speed Accord sedan. Each has it's own personality too. ;)

    nice simple setup that hasnt been riced out! Personally I love the DEP (what I have) and it fits with my cars name lol. H23a is a great swap if you are seriously considering it. I had a non vtec H23a1 that exploded 2 months ago and have since upgraded to an F20b. Pretty much anything you choose to swap in will be a lot more fun than the F23 . I still think the F23 is the most reliable engine honda has ever made. I would still have mine but after I converted the car to manual I went crazy and missed 4th and went back to second. The car still ran strong for about 6 months after that and I beat on it. Eventually it spun a bearing and was probably salvageable but I needed an excuse to do a swap lol. Anyways congrats on the pickup and good luck with the build.
