Default New to the game looking for some help!!

ok so heres my story ive had a range of cars and have just now got around to
getting a honda product. so i picked up a 99 acura cl with 210 miles with a fresh rebuild thats an automatic 2.3 vtec f23a1. so point is im trying to get some power out of it but not spend a ton of cash, so i was thinking about doing a head swap with a h22 or something thatll give me a more hp. also im eventually going to put a manual trans but for now ill ride this transmission out. any thoughts are welcome . let me know what you think!!

The head swap won't gain you much hp and will be a major pain. My as well just go all the way and do a full h22 swap
