You can go to the advance auto parts or auto zone to get a special engine. To make sure you get the right one, it must be a regular engine but your exhaust has to be replace with another original. Make sure you take out the engine pipe from underneath the car to make the car non smog and it is 0 emission

In general, only engines certified as original equipment can be used in California. Since only the one engine was available in the 1991 Accord I think you are stuck with it. California is extremely strict with emissions, making almost anything you would otherwise want to do (like a K&N intake) fatal to your car's legality. You can check with the referee at the local Bureau of Automotive Repair for an official answer.

You can legally swap in any H22, H23 or F seriers motor aslong as its not from the S2000 and be able to pass CA smog
