Will an 84-85 Accord head (es-2) bolt to a 2nd gen carb prelude engine?

A friend asked me if it fits but I'm not 100% sure.

If the 2g Prelude has the ES or ET engine in it, then it should be fine. The ET is questionable, I think some ETs had the A-series headgasket. If it's an A18, then no, it won't. So if it's like an 85, I think that's the one that will work.

The intake ports are totally different though. So if he swaps on the Accord head, he'll have to use the Accord intake manifold.
