don't see why the engine size would effect the hood size. It wouldn't cause it to overheat.


same problem man. 96 v6 honda accord hood is very hardto find my mechanic estimated 700 bucks and he will find one and install it :/

Should be the exact same thing. Same car, different engine- meaning the body parts are all the same. Only thing that's different is probably the emissions sticker underneath the hood. Otherwise, go for it!

I recall A friend needing to replace a hood on a v6 and he found out the front of the v6 is slightly wider than the 4cyl. hood and fenders do not match up.

Honda does wierd things with body pieces. Ive also experianced tail lights that dont match up because of trim level. Wierd crap. Go junk yard hunting.
