    It would be a difficult swap. The V6 Accord's engine bay is slightly longer then the four-cylinder's, so you couldn't just get the four cylinder mounts and bolt it in. You would probably need to make custom mounts. I would just try and find some parts for the V6, or sell the car and buy a four-cylinder Accord...

    Kim, why downgrade? Put the Acura V6 in it. My friend did this, and then supercharged it and makes like 375+ whp. Interesting...

    Well, for that particular V6 the H22 might actually be an upgrade. It only made 170ish horses, and around 150-160 ft/lbs I believe, so the H22's actually got it beat.

    I completely agree though, I would not even attempt the H22 swap. Upgrade to a better V6 or get a different car...
