    Easiest swap would be the same engine that is already in there.

    lol what i meant was that without a really big shoehorn and a lot of money you won't fit anything else in there. aren't those carbureted engines?

    bad karma i would NOT spend that kind of cash on a car that old, unless you refresh and restore it to be a classic not a street racer

    Seriously guys...

    I have an 81 too and have the same question. I've heard the A-series engine has the same mounts? Is this true? Did the A-series come in the Accord, and if so what years? I think my engine is EK1. Would the tranny need to be replaced too?

    I am interested in restoring this car. This is not a street racer, it's a daily driver with sentimental value.

    btw, it has to meet CA emissions too...

    no it is fuel injected si 4ws- mine is in beautiful condition- the only reason I need to replace my engine is because the timing belt broke- It drives better than any car I've ever driven, and I driven alot of nice cars- and mine is an 89
