    prelude/accord swaps suck. just try to find a stock replacement. but yes, an h22 will work, but it's a tight fight.

    90 accord = f22

    swaps are f series or h series

    2.0 out of a prelude will not fit

    wat hes saying is a 90 accord comes with the f22. pretty much the only swaps you can do with them is another f22 or h22 and that the b20 from the prelude wont fit

    i have a h22 in my 4 door accord....it fit perfectly its not that tight of a fit considering all stock mounts but yea...if you go on ebay you can probebly find a f22a engine and trans for like 3-400$ it does not matter if it is a f22a1, f22a4, or f22a6 if you can find the a6 get it...its the better version of them...its out of a 92-93 accord ex and the SE models good luck.....also if anyone needs a f22a1 head (complete) i am selling one, has everything in it as well as the power steering pump still connected and i will throw in the alternator.....100 bucks plus shipping lol but good luck with the engine

    You've seen a B20 swapped into a 90-93 Accord? Not believing it. Also, you gave the OP bad information. A 1990 Prelude has the B20A5, not the H22. The B20A5 is a crap engine and is NOT a bolt-in for 90-93 Accords...

    Hey I'm new to this just joined, I have a 1990 accord 5 speed with the 97 accord vtec motor 2.2. I can't get the drivers side motor mount, all the others fit perfectly. I tried the 90 mount It doesn't mount to the motor, the 97 mount wount mount to the body, any ideas would be really helpfull, I'll try to start a new thread tomorrow for this issue.
