What the best swap for a 88 honda accord dx?
So u would say that will run better than dropping in the d16y8?
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
Thanks alot for the info i was also thinking of going wit the b20a frm the 2nd gen lude which i hear is a easy swap.
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.
<-- learned something today
^ 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.
NOTE; dont get the b20a confused with the pos b series that came in the usdm preludes the jdm only b20a was a perty good motor
My bad I know that one of them sucks, I thought the one you where talking about was it.
naa the one thats a pos is the b21a1 and b20a5
Got it. Thanks for clearing that up for me mang.
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.)...
4G Accords For Life Holmes!!!!
well how will a b20/b21 outa a prelude not bolt in when a jdm b20a will bolt right in a prelude just wanting to know where you are coming from
because in japon in the 3rd gen they came stock in them over there and its still a different motor than the one in the prelude
ahh well they are both the b20a correct and that would make it confusing when looking for one
no, if its the one im talking about it will just sat b20a the one that sucks will say b20a5
usdm preludes 88-91 This 3rd gen Will not fit in the 86-89 Accord with out major mod's and lot's of cash
This is a 2nd get JDM B20a that will fit in the 86-89 Accord or 85-87 prelude with minor mod's to the wiring.
yup just what i said
