    it would cost a lot more, get a d16z6 and call it a day, it'll drop right in if i'm not mistaken, but let some of the other people on this site tell you more, i'm just learning too ;)

    there is no motor out there that will drop right in to a 88 accord but one and thats a jdm b20a, all other motors other than the stock 86-89 accord and prelude sohc motors will take 100% custom work to make fit and work in the car.

    ^ Yep, IMO just drive the car as is, but if your dead set on doing a swap I would sell it and buy something more swappable.

    The best swap for an 88 Accord is to swap the entire car out for something that's more tuner-friendly (88-00 Civic, 90-01 Integra, 90-97 Accord, etc.)...
