I don't think the S2000 engine swap is possible. From what I've read the engine spins the other way. A bSeries engine would not provide enough torque for the Accord.
The F23 is decent for Turbo building.
If you don't want to go turbo, H22 or F20 are both good for NA.
For the money, turboing the F23 is probably your best option.
You won't ever go too incredibly fast in an accord though. Unless you drop some serious cash.
If you want to go fast for cheap, buy a 5spd mustang and build that.

search the forum for G23, I think it's an H22 head on your f23 motor but I can't recall for certain, there's quite a bit of info on it in here....

S2000: 99-03 had a F20C motor
02-up has a F22C1 motor

Honda B, D, F and H motors spin the same direction (opposite everyone else)
A K-series motor spins the other direction (the same as everyone else, non-Honda)

Wikipedia S2000 page
Wikipedia Honda F-engine page

silence .... the bores of the F20 and F23 engines have a 1mm differance with the F23 having the larger bore (86mm). An F22 motor has the same bore though.

The F20C is like the K, it spins the opposite direction of all other honda motors. The F23 crank shaft will not fit. The only motor the F23 crankshaft will fit in is the H22a4. Good luck trying to fit the F20C or F22C motor in your accord and mating a tranny up to it. F22's have an 85mm bore. The F20/22C head will not fit either.

The G23 is using either the H23 non-vtec head or the H22 head.

Looks like from what I've read, the G23 is a very good concept, but it is still pretty "experimental" if you know what I mean. I future Honda tech would be an excellent Guinea Pig!
Have you typed "G23" into the search engine andread about it yet?
