    H22, or K24, if you have mad cash to blow. Forget the B20. B-series into the Accord is a no no.

    Build the f22 block and swap to a H23 or h22 head .

    Just swap the h22 .

    K-series is going to set you back a few thousand. You can build what you have a turbo it . for about the same price as the k24 swap.

    Like brutal said. It all depends on how deep your pockets can go .

    Paying someone can reach you in 3000 range.

    Doing it yourself, will be about 1500-2000.

    Well considering that if your also converting to manual your gonna need more stuff than just motor and tranny from a nother car, i would plan on like 2500 for parts alone, then a whole shit load of your time or someone elses :)

    the f20B is also an option...Im thinking about doing that to my accord this summer...but the only problem with that would be that it will be hard to find parts for it...but would have 200 hp....

    If you are converting to a manual...Have fun with that...My dad went crazy trying to get the wiring figured out so that he could get a wire for the manual tranny to work...your gonna have one hell of a time with that

    Well I think either the H22 or F20(Blue top) would be really good for an accord the guy at JDM told me he would swap a F20 for 3,500 that includes everything engine tranny ecu....etc.
    It all depends on how much you're willing to spend...
