    Dont know that theres much out there for your car. You should switch you car over to fuel injected so you at least have the option of swapping in a newer motor.

    You might be able to turbo your current engine after a rebuild but other than that I dont know.

    <_< 84 Accord eh? I would say to forget swapping anything into an 84 accord, waste of time & money and wouldn't that be one hell of a pain in the ass, if even possible. To make your life and swap easier, get yourself a car that is more swapable, that's just my opinion though. Anything's possible.

    ya but what we are saying is its hard to swap it cuase almost nothing fits in there....I don't even think any B-series will fit in there...get on hasport.com and see what kind of engine mounts they make for your model and then go from there
