    D-Series swap? Possible?

    Hey I want to know if a D-series engine will bolt into an 89 sedan. Searched and found nothing. Help would be nice.

    b20a3 is from a 3g prelude. d-series also does not bolt right in, but it doesn't look like it would be difficult to make work if you have the know-how and can fabricate mounts and stuff

    I havn't welded in a long time. I just thought of this would a F22A1 engine from a 90's accord bolt in? Probably not cause honda is stupid. Thats what I have learned from owning one.

    honda's not stupid just the 3rd gen accord is a bastard.

    good luck finding a b20a, i'd buy mounts for 350 from innovative and with a little wiring you can put a real b-series in there not one of these b20a nonsense motors.

    i dunno who even bothered putting that motor into an accord. my guess is thats a SOHC ZC motor. 130PS. pretty much the same as the top spec d series output anyway without the vtax y0
