You now what guys, don't say it can't be done. When honda came out with the K-series, some people tought that they wouldn't be able to swap them in their civics & integras because it was opposite from d,b, and h series, the tranny was on the opposite side, the engine faced backwards with the intake in front and the exhaust in the back. Well wadaya now, they have them in the crx, del sol, civic, integra, and now even preludes & accords.
And if that doesn't seem crazy enough to you, please be aware that there are many swaps that just require some ingenuity & patience, but in the end you can do anything if you just give it a shot here's an example.
h22 prelude motor in a neon wtf! It has been done I have the picture but it wouldn't work here I edited the link away, I'll try to make it work somehow next time I'm on here.
hmmm, how about a hemy engine in the .... nevermind lol, but yea i'd definately consider the typical beta swap, but i might want to work on the alpha engine, to see the maximum it can put out to the wheels first, then if its not enough, i'll put in a monsterous beta engine :
i've seen this accent v-tec speak of. it was an X3 with one of those pepboys V-Tec Tuning stickers and pepboy 13" wheels. the kid had 3 gauges, a/f, ampmeter, and oil pressure and his girlfriend in the car and would not race at all, at all. had a huge autozone gt wing. think the loud whistle scared him... or he is just a sensible driver who that all that rice looked good.
