    Well, the engine list will help some, but you have to consider also that a typical Accord will be significantly heavier than a typical Civic. The main thing you'll notice from the Accord engines is that they have quite a bit more torque than the Civic engines. This is necessary to get the heavier Accords moving.

    As to your original question, yeah, I think a lot of the Accords, in stock form, are actually a bit quicker than the Civics, the V6 Accords especially. And you're right about the 08 Accord being hella quick. I've heard that it's actually a bit faster than the S2000. This is the V6 model though, with the 6 speed transmission. Obviously a four cylinder automatic isn't going to be anywhere near that fast.

    Gotcha. Well I assume that you have a 92 lx, so you're basically doing a motor replacement more than anything, correct?
