    Alright, I just bought a 91 Accord LX. It's mainly all stock as far as I know except it has an aftermarket Air Intake. I'm completely noob as to what needs replaced to get the best preformance out of my car. I have the cash to overhaul this car, just not the brains. (i.e. my username) I've been hearing alot about vtec and how it works. I would like to know what to get for my car to make it the street racer it could be. Any and all help is appreciated, Thanks.

    your already at a site that has tons of info on the swap. try the search up at the top of the page.the h22a is from a jdm prelude it will drop right in your car.

    thanks for the rep. and yes its perty much your only choice unless you turbo your stock motor or dump some serious $$$$. to give you a ideal of what it will be like a stock h22a in your car will beat this piss out of a gt mustang

    eh...I have to do a tranny swap at the same time..so yea. It's auto atm. Like I said, I have the cash. I want the long block? Why's that? There's only one long block on the site. and it doesn't come with a tranny.

    right thats why its called a long block, its just the motor no tranny, you want the full sap in the link i posted..but it sounds like you got some work to do, converting it to 5spd and all. how many miles is on your stock motor

    yea it's got like 380k miles on the stock engine...but I'm replacing all the interior and under the hood before anything gets thrown on body wise. Dont need my car stolen cause it's "hott" anyway, so yea I know I've got alot of work to do and I have alot of time to do it. I work at a paint/body shop where there's always an open lift and a couple jack-offs standing around to help with somethin. also have the time to do it..I'm homeschooled. >.<
