    I have a 1988 accord with 156k. I changed the transmission from auto to a 5 speed about 7 months ago. The piston rings are starting to go (who does't like redline shifts:D). So here is the question. Should I do an engine swap for a EFI? Or rebuild what I have in it right now (carb).

    H series and f series engines weren't introduced in the accord and prelude bodystyles untill 1990. The A series engine can be swapped for the early prelude motors which are designated b20a#(not like the common integra b series engines) and although mount kits are available for h/f series swaps into these body styles they are not suggested for beginners. I suggest a newer b series engine also because wiring is simple on these motors and there is more room to work with then h series.

    After doing some of my own research, I have decided to buy a new project car (some thing that people make more stuff for). Any Suggestions? I was thinking of a late 90s civic or a delsol.
