Unless you imported your Accord from Japan or you live in Japan, than you could have a B series engine. However, if you live in North America than you have the A series engine. D series engines were not available on the Accords.

Suspension wise, I would get new struts. Those struts on the car must be old and saggy. You likely have lost all the firmness of the ride.

Performance...Well..I wouldn't do much to it. If it is a carburetor engine, and non fuel injected than I would just drive it until the wheels fall off.

Honda made good engines back then that were plenty reliable but they lack pull.

SOHC 12 valve 4 cylinder is dated by today's standards.
