i've never been sure about buying engines on ebay. there are quite a few online retailers, like www.passwordjdm.com that have a pretty good rep. But if i were you i would try to find a prelude that got in a accident and the owner is junking that way you know exactly how many miles are on it, and you know that it runs. most online places dont say much for details other then 30-50k miles and it has been compression and leak tested.

Do you mean import personally? You can buy a motor straight from japan and have it here in the US. You'd have to make sure it passes smog though and for some states like where I live (CA) there is BAR exam which is even tougher. They are the authority when it comes to legal swaps.

Definitely check out www.cb7tuner.com HAF is a great site, I love it, but cb7 is specific only to the 4 gen accords, so it's info base is more complete for specific work you need to do to your car.
