    dude the only thing I've seen swapped into a 3g is a b20 from flip light prelude.

    There was a guy on here a while back who was running an LS/VTEC in an 89 hatchback, so yes, B-series is definately possible.

    yes, it's possible. it's been done before. you'll need the b-series mount kit from place racing. good luck finding that, as it's out of production. your only other option is to do it custom, or, like chaos said, the b20a is as close to a bolt-in swap as you'll get. look for my thread showing the differences of the 1g b20a for the 1986-1989 accord/1984-1987 prelude and the 2g b20a for the 1988-1991 b20a. but the bolt-in one for the accord makes the same power as the b16a and ~20 more ft/lb of torque. of course, if you want, you can buy a 3g with the swap already complete. i know of two for sale at this very moment.
