    Coupe is heavier than Sedan for sure. Well if you swap a 1.6L then go B16.. more potential in the long run

    Re: D Series Swap...

    somebody did a b16 swap into an accord (was it oldschoolswap?) anyway, he could only run mid 15s with that setup. For the same money, i was into the 13s on a stock engine. My built engine uses mostly off the shelf parts, except for the pistons were custom made, but they are on stock B18a/b sized eagle rods, that and the headwork/intake manfold. Stock crank, off the shelf headstuds, oil pump, gaskets etc. There is no point in swapping to a D series in an accord, just no point. Going B series can get you good results but its very expensive, and then your still not even gaining that much power really, your gonna have to mod that engine to start making real power... Turbo A series is the way to go for bang for your buck

    1988 Honda Accord LXi CPE MT 2551
    1988 Honda Accord LX Sedan MT 2482
    1989 Honda Accord DX CPE MT 2493
    1989 Honda Accord DX Sedan MT 2595

    as you can see those are all pretty close right? the heaviest is the sei sedan at 2700, and again some of that weight will be in the motor, about 100 extra lbs...

    so if you take an lxi coupe and swap it, it's roughly the same as an ex coupe for the 95 civic... any more questions?

    Re: D Series Swap...

    Naw, all i'm saying is I would never swap a d in the 3g, a20 works fine

    and yes, b16 would be my choice if money was not a issue, because its the smallest engine with decent aftermarket

    Re: D Series Swap...

    a d powered accord would be interesting alright and probably really good on fuel. id choose a dohc zc as the shitbox single cam engines are made for economy not speed even tho they make good power for what they are

    personally wouldnt spend money to get one in my accord tho id upgrade to an H22a but my factory b20a will do me fine
