Can a 1997 honda accord 2.2 vtec engine fit in a 1998 honda accord that currently has a basic 2.2 engine

Asked by Nov 05, 2011 at 03:04 PM about the 1998 Honda Accord EX

Question type: Car Customization

I JUST WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THAT VTEC IN MY 1998 ACCORD.
They make the 3.0 for the 98 accord, but its still not a vtec.
SHOULD I STICK WITH MODS ON THE REGULAR 2.2???...
COULD I DO THE SWAP WITH A 1997 2.2 VTEC???...
OR WOULD GETTING A 3.0 AND ADDING MODS BE MORE BENEFICIAL???...

I Would Stick to the 2.2l vtec dosent solve everything but it helps also depending on the location smog law states model year or newer on engine swaps best of luck

So you think 2.2 with bolt ons would probably be best?
