    Don't waste your time or money. AFAIK, they mount completely different.

    If you really want a swap, get an h22

    yeah, fabbing mounts for that V6 is gonna be a bitch. youd be better off to get the H22.

    Its a very smooth operating motor, and obviously more powerful than the four cylinder, but the power difference wont justify all the work needed to get it to work. I think you will be satisfied with a H22

    the fab work would suck, and your suspension would have to be changed.

    It can be done, but none of us have money to burn, so we turbocharge H22's for less money.

    the front ends on v6 accords are longer than on the 4 cylidners. iirc. i think this may only be pertinent to the 98+ accords.

    I don't know, could be. Either way, I've shoehorned a few motors in where they shouldn't have been. More than likely, some cutting, welding, and relocation of parts would need to happen.

    Not my bag for an Accord, not when there are so many more options to make great power. I'd buy a V6 accord before I'd swap one in.

    sell your accord, buy a V6 accord. TT that bitch and be happy with absolutely no traction on street tires. [​IMG].
