    This is one of the easiest swaps out there. Everything should bolt right up. Get an engine that matches the OBD setup of your car and it should be a very easy swap...

    You'll want the Prelude's ECU, and actually, if you can get the Prelude engine's wiring harness as well, it may plug right into your Accord's chassis harness. No guarantees though, but if the harness is included with the engine or you can get it, that would probably be the best case scenario...

    Yeah, it's more expensive because it has 40 more horsepower over the H23 plus VTEC. It's definitely the better motor...

    only problem with that one is that its from what is LIKE a junkyard they just rip the motors and trans out and have no start up guarntee. But then again you cant really beat that price good find bro
