    Can you put a 1998 3.0 in a 1996 accord which had a 2.7 in it?? If so what needs to be changed.

    I am sure you could but that is more work than it would be worth. Not only would you have to make all of the mounts etc you would have to figure out the drive line set up for cv shafts and all of the wiring....besides those motors are turds.

    no and no, there is no use. the 2.7 is crap and so is the j30 in those cars. scrap it and get a 4 banger to put an h22 or something in.
