    It will require a decent amount of modding, and no, the transmission from your D16 will not work on the Accord motor.

    Is something wrong with your D16? Or do you just want more power? If you're just looking for more power then I'd recommend swapping the Y7 head over to a Y8 or Z6 head, or just swapping the entire thing out for a B-series engine...

    It just wont line up. You have to keep the engine and transmission in the same family (D, B, F/H, K)

    Sure a F or H would fit in but they're not the best choice. Heavy and not as many parts as a B-series.

    you can make any engine fit, it just comes down to how much work you want to do. If you want something easy, do the basic intake, header, exhaust, do a mini me (vtec head on non vtec block) and a nice cam. if you want a little more power and want to do a little extra work get either a B16 or a B18

    get a ls b18 and get a garage to swap it in for you... when you get bored with it in a year or two and learn some more then turbo it.

    what parts in a swap are essential to make any engine run/work in a car its not made for

    1. engine
    2. transmission
    3. wiring harness (unless adaptable)
    4. ECU
    5. Mounts (get d to whatever engine you want to run mounts)
    6. possible radiator
    7. possible fuel pump

    d-series won't line up to F-series. i believe that the H-series will. and H and F series have interchangeable parts.

    Look up D to F swap or even D to H swap and you'll get an idea for what you will need and how to do it. also check out the HP & TQ. difference to see if it will be of any benefit to you before you decide to spend all your money on the swap and not be able to afford anything aftermarket after if your goal was power.

    think before you act or you'll end up with a pile of crap :D

    here is the basic little write up i have been passing around. it applies to both h and f series MANUAL swaps.

    first off, swaps are getting easier...

    the post below applies to the F and H series motors as the mounts, transmissions, axles, and wiring are the same.

    First off, an H22 is hydraulic clutch, cable shifter.

    Motor Mounts will have to be purchased. Explicit Speed Performance Quality mounts, not hasport pretty, but have yet to break a set (out of 12 h/f turbo swaps)

    Axels you can go a different route. Ebay (like 120) for decent axels, Hasport (300), or build your own (good if the swap comes with axels) (you can use your stock drivers side, you have to change the nuckle on the passenger sie that attaches to the trans) (you will have all the parts so no cost!!)

    Cable shifter... the lines have to be ran so they are not bent at too tight of an angle. Use the prelude shifter (you will need to cover the hole from the old shift linkage and either weld in 4 nus on top or try ans screw on 4 on the longer bolts under the car. the easier wat it to weld. they will las longer especially when yankin on the shifter. The bes way to run your cables is through the fire wall just under the center console. this way you run less risk of hitting your wire harness with the larger Bore bit (minimum 1.5 in hole). from there you can run the cables to the shifter (under the carpet) and to the transmission.

    Wiring.... Raywire (Rywire - Online Store) will make you a harness (from your single cam and the h22/23) that will work fine with the h22 ecu. you have another option, you can mix and match to build a jumper harness in the two places where the hanesses meet. take about 3 hours and will be plug and play. this is the dash connector to ecu and dash connector to engine harness, about 40 wires total (obd2 will have a few left over but you can wire the diognostip port up for trouble codes)

    any questions hit me up.... 6785446472
