    Actually, there's practically NOTHING that you can do with that car besides basic bolt-ons (intake, exhaust). An H22 won't fit. Whoever told you that was mistaken. And as far as I know there are no other V6s that will easily swap in and there are no manual transmissions that will bolt-up.

    Probably should have researched this a bit more before you bought the car...

    Interesting. Sucks that that's the only transmission that works though. Good luck finding one without a bajillion miles on it...

    yeah I know, these things are so old that a rebuild on one is a definate before install, but it does allow for a better running v6 accord.

    No, he can't. We're talking about a 5th-gen V6 here, they came with a C-series engine, not the J-series like the 98+ Accords have...
