    That's not a common swap, so you'd need to do a lot of research. Your wiring would suck bad. Your car is OBD0, which pretty much means you'd have to get a full harness(all the way to the ECU), and go absolutely ballistic with wiring.

    id say something in the b-series would be your best bets...you will definitely need new mounts...and if you get an obd0 b16 your wiring time will be reduced, but new mounts will be the hard part. We have a member with an older accord that has an LS in his car. He fabbed all the mounts himself, so i really dont have a lot of info for you on that.

    obd0 = 88-91
    obd1 = 92-95
    obd2 = 96+

    The differnce is just about everything and an OBD1 harness wont plug into an OBD0 ECU.

    Wiring is not gonna be your problem. Getting the engine in the car will be the problem. Wiring is easy with patience and a diagram.

    Bolting and welding seems easy to me, so I guess difficulty is in your point of view. I'm also good at wiring, but it requires more patience.

    the mounts are similar for the accord, but if you get a prelude engine with the mounts, then you can mix match and shave the mounts to make everything work (because honestly i dont remember the right combination of mounts)
