Default Accord and Prelude swaps?

Not sure where to post this so in off topic it goes. I know that a h22 head fits af23 and f22(i think) and i recently discovered that prelude shifter out of a 2000 prelude fits my 2001 accord. I recently discovered this on my own while at a scrap yard and decided to swap my accord shifter for the lude shifter (for many reasons), this raised the question besides the head swaps and shifter box swaps what other, if any, parts are interchangeable. Is stuff like the intake manifolds interchangeable (i doubt it since the sohc vs the dohc), or the pistons, wheels, seats, etc. very curious about this.

That is about it as far as interchangeable parts goes. And the head swap is by no means a walk in the park.

But the wheels are different lug pattern, seats don't fit.

Transmission, clutch, and flywheel are about the only other parts I can think of that do fit.

doesn't sound like you can do enough on it to make it worthwhile..

interesting i was hoping for more but good to know, and yes i heard the head swap is a nightmare at times and its probably cheaper and more power gains to just turbo
