Default engine swap or tune?

in the humble opinion of all readers, would a few mods on my current engine give me more power cheaper than swapping engines, maybe a h22 or something?

Intake, headers, exhaust on your current engine= 12-18 whp/?\ Cheap.

If you want more power, then a H22 along with 5 speed swap is your best bet. Wont be cheap nonetheless.

so an engine/tranny swap wouldn't necessarily be a bad idea as long as i am willing to pour some time and money into it?

i guess, im priddy shure u have the non-vtec, would be good for a turbo.... i want to swap mine, from the f22b2 to the f23a1 from the newer accords, then individual throtle bodies and a 5 speed tranny... think it would be sick, speaking of wich. Does anyone know of any swap kits available for that???? :s

yeah it's non vtec, but i'd rather go non turbo. what exactly do you need for a complete engine swap? i mean, obviously the engine, ecu... some hardware... what else?

uhhhhh.... it can be a lot depending on what engine/transmission you want to put into what kinda chassi(is that spelt right? iunno) but sweet thing about hondas is that in some cases its those you noted ( ecu, engine mounts ect.) sometimes altering pwer steering racks and hoses... just thinking about it makes me wanna find a garage to strip my accord.... must resist :P
