i think a h22 is the cheapest i mean for the power and good fitment into an accord...

you can pick one up for 2000-2500.. and installed it for 3grand... you can't do that pretty much with a bseries....

you might pick up a f-series but those engines are rarer and harder to find parts if you blew your motor or something =)

so i recommend the h22 and why you are objected to it?

If you don't have 3K you won't get any swap with 150-170 horse installed.

You can try doing work on your stock engine, but if you don't have 3K, leave it alone until you do. Figure $700 for install, that only leaves $2300 to buy the engine/tranny/mount kit, etc....

lol if you dont have atleast 2000 grand your not gettin anything.
not even a stock motor installed back into that car.

places charge anywhere from 500-1500 just for the labour and you want them to give u a motor and swap it too? good luck.

any f series motor can bolt onto a f series tranny
any h series motor can bolt onto a f series tranny aswell but i wouldnt recommend it.
