Please post car info in a signature. Here's the link for Wiki info, but they don't give the engine code for the new ones.

To answer your question, your car has an F motor. They've been using K motors lately which is very similar except that the engine spins in the opposite direction, therefore the head wouldn't work unless there is a conversion camshaft available which I've never seen. If you want to get more power via a head change, look for an H22 head to build a G23 motor. 00AccordEX has posted links for that build a few times on HAF.

Even the G23 won't put out an incredible amount of power though. One of the mods on the 6th gen forum has a G23 (F23 with H23 head) thatputs out 155 WHP(he posted the dyno results witrh a video as well.) Don't get me wrong, I think 155whp is impressive for an accord.
The G23 Falkore refers to (F23 with H22 head) is supposed to be a pretty turbo friendly motor with a low compression ratio.

The H22A puts out 185HP out of the box ..... the head has great airflow for NA. I'd expect that to be the most powerful head for the F23 engine, but I could be wrong.

Yeah but that's HP at the crank, not the wheels.
