    OK i have a 1992 Honda accord 4dr SE. So i want to know is it possible to drop in a b18c5 which is the type r motor into my accord. If so what do i need to do to the car to make the motor fit and work properly or if i shouldnt even both with this idea. Now i bet everyone is wondering why i am asking this, well ... its because i can get this motor clean and with legit papers for dirt cheap off a good friend of mine that will sell it to me cheap. So i am asking one is it possible and two what will i need to drop it in and also if anyone has seen it done and have pics can u please post it or email it to me at Almightyaccord@aol.com Well thats it

    You'd have to make custom mounts to get it to fit. No one makes mounts to drop a B-series into a 90+ Accord/92+ Prelude. Probably because it's worthless.

    Oh yeah, I think the B18C5's only came OBD2. So you'd have to deal with the OBD conversion as well.

    And strip out a few hundred pounds from you Accord, so the low torque output from the 1.8L engine could pull around your Accord.

    Get the h22 for your accord. It is a perfect combo.

    How cheap is cheap? Would he be willing to sell it? :D

    Sell your accord and get a hatch IMO if you want that motor.
