    I am not that accustom to hondas so I was wondering if someone could answer me this. Could a 3.2 V6 engine be swaped in for my 1.7 easily?

    You would need to custom fabricate everything yourself. It would be extremely expensive and time consuming. Look into a K series swap instead.

    The el is exactly the same as a civic. badge engineering at it's finest. It has nothing in common with the accord.
