Exclamation Thinking about replacing the engine in my 92 Honda Accord LX

I want to put a new engine into my car, but I'm not sure if what I want will fit. I would like to put a 2.7 liter VTEC into it (yes i know i would need new wiring and ECUs and all that). Would it fit into the space my car has or would I have to go with a 2.2L? And if anyone could post some links to engines for sale compatible with my car that would be nice too

Dont think it'll fit without real extensive ($$$) modification.

Even the 5th-gen Accord, they enlarged the whole front end for that engine. In other words, the V6 won't even fit easily in a 1997 4-cyl car.

If you wanting a bit more HP out of the car.

The H series swaps are popular. Others go for boosting the F series.
