    It might be a rod but if i were to change it out just get the exact same engine that way you don't have to change mounts. Also make sure it has low miles and junk yards would be cheapest.

    Even if a better, more powerful engine will bolt in with the factory mounts?

    Well, yes, if you want something that's 100% plug and play, than just look for a stock replacement. I'm just trying to spread some knowledge. An OBD1 H22 or H23 engine will bolt in using the Accord's mounts, and will wire up easily and provide a significant upgrade over the stock F-series.

    Mister DiMocK acted like you have to change the mounts for an H22, and that's not true...

    Get or rent a cherry picker I think harbor freight has one for like 100 with a coupon and just return it when your done. Pull it out with the tranny it's easier to swap the tranny onto the new motor while it's out of the car
