    I am looking for a cheap car, currently I have my eye on an 1988 Accord with only 130k. It is rusted pretty good, but thats not worring me. Its a manual. I was woundering what kind of swaps I could do to it, after the motor goes. For $200 for the car, its going to see some fun "rallicording" :D with the high revving and playing w/ stuff on the car I am sure it will not last normal 200k+ So i was woundering if i could do any other swaps?

    Thanks
    Josh

    Check out this sight for all you need to know about 3rd Gen Accords. By the way, you may want to look around, I've seen many cheap ones without rust. If you get one I'd recommend the LXI, better power, fuel injected.

    Get an 88-89 LX-i or Se-i. Thats if you want to do the swap, or you'll end up doing the Carb to EFI converstion, witch SUCKS!!!

    Anyhow, feel free to cruise my site http://vtecnos.tripod.com . I did the B16 swap twice now.

    What's involved in putting a fuel-injected engine into an accord that had a carbed engine that sucks so much?
