Default How long does a '97 Honda Accord take to do?

I'm looking to purchase a '97 Honda accord that comes with a newer engine, and I am curious to know how long it might take to do the swap. It's a four cylinder SOHC engine, relatively small.

I'm a novice, but I'll be having a couple of experienced guys assisting me, so I'm guessing 8 hours. Please let me know Yahoo community. Thank you, Cris.

If it's an F series or H series, it will be a direct bolt on. Then you will have to find the right ECU with the right OBD for the motor. If the motor has VTEC and the original motor does not, you will have to wire in your own VTEC.

your engine install should realistically take a novice about 10 hrs with air tools and a lift .take your time and be a perfectionist ,,good luck.
