94-97 accord l4-V6 swap -is it possible?
How much would be involved to swap the 4 banger for a V6 in a 5th gen Accord....and is it even worth it? THX
I'm not sure about swapping the engine, but I do know that the nose of a 5th gen V6 is about 3 inches longer than a 4cyl so it might not even fit under the hood unless you got crafty?

You'll need a C27 engine, unless you wanted to go with the J-series (CL/TL/AV6 V6 engine). Matching transmission (One out of the Legend or Vigor would work, I really want to say the old Legend V6s), motor mounts. It's going to run you at least 2,000. Probably more.
The F22-series was rated at 140hp, the C27 was rated at 170. 2,000 for 30hp? Buy nitrous.
J30 out of the AV6 was rated at 200hp. I believe the J32 is either 250 or 270hp.
If you've got the money, time, and knowhow, or someone you can pay who knows what they're doing I'd just go H22A. It's damn near a direct dropin, 200hp 4cyl and 5spd trannie with LSD. That would rock!

less torque than j30 or j32 though.

but j30 + comptech s/c in 5th gen would be pretty damn unique.

Did you guys read the 1st reply? The 5th gen V-6 (the old legend 2.7) had a different hood, fenders, bumpers, and a longer engine bay stretched out to fit the 2.7. So youd have to lengthen the engine bay, and buy all new sheetmetal from the A-pillar forward. The J series engine is even bigger.
The answer to his question is that its completely not worth it; that is if he could even find someone able to do the job. Go with an H22 is you want significant more oomph.
One final note; 5th gen V-6s were slower than I-4 sticks. The added weight negated all performace benefits from the 25 more hp, whatever torque that engine produced.

keep in mind the 3.0 and 3.2 j-series engines are considerably bigger then the 2.2 H22 (added weight), the amount of money you spend on fabrication to fit the J-motor to fit into a 5th gen can be spent on readily available h22 aftermarket parts that will surpass the hp/tq any j-series makes.
