Default What cars have the same engine as mine?

Hello I have a 89 Honda Accord DX with the 2.0 L4 with the carberator, and a 5 speed manual transmission. I would like to put a turbo, new intake and possibly switch it over to be fuel injection. I look for this stuff online and in catalogs but my car isn't one that many put stuff like that in. I would like to know What other cars of that year has the same Engine? So I won't get a part for my car that don't even fit the engine. I'm not putting the stuff in the car to race it. I just don't like the power that it has It don't have the power that I'm use to and I would like to match the power that I am use to. if you can help me thank you alot

The amount of money you'll spend on doing that could get you a newer car that has fuel injection and more power (not to mention the time and effort tracking down all you'll need, and then the time it will take you to do the work).

If you really want to stick another engine in your car just drop a little sohc vtec engine or a b16a at most because most honda engines are pretty interchangable in all honda cars (for the most part) which little or no modifications to the engine bay (probably just need the motor mounts or something). Look it up on a honda forum or vtec forum and those guys will know for sure.. you won't have a lot of torque but that hp in the upper band will be a good deal more than what you're putting out right now...turbo just wouldn't be worth it for your car unless you want to soup it up and you really like your car (cause it won't be worth more for resale...its worth it too you but not necessarily others)

Well to start your 89 Accord has the A20A1 engine. The 2.0 carbureted L4.Needless to say your A-series engine is quite old and the only other cars with that engine are 86-89 Accords...that and the aftermarket support for the A-series is next to nothing.If you wish to upgrade to the fuel injected model you will need to look for the A20A3. But I wouldn't recommend that because finding a A-series engine that is 15 years old and in good condition is going to be hard.My suggestion to you is this...since you want some decent power for your little Accord do a H22A engine swap from a later Prelude. You can find a H22 engine for roughly about $2,500 and it comes with the trans, ecu, ect...just about everything you'll need for a swap. What you will need is a Hasport engine mount kit, different axles, and a few othe odds and ends to make it function like a daily driver. If your paying a shop to do it for you, they will most likely take care of all this for you.The H22 will most likely give you the power you want and the reliability of a daily driver. I also highly suggest to upgrade your suspension too...the H22 is going to be alot heavier than the little A20 you have in your car right now.Good Luck
