probably an h22 or maybe a b16. i think it may already have an h22. 22 means 2.2L, 16 means 1.6 liter, they h22 is for later model hondas, and preludes/accords i believe. b16's are from civic si's 99-2000. It's been a while since i've messed with any of those but i'm pretty sure they're the easiest to swap. Good luck

Hey, Your best upgrade would be the H22 or H23 from the prelude. They will bolt right up to your tranny, and fit with ease. They are in the 200-220 HP range, and are fairly easy to find. You will need the ECU as well to control the V-tec option on the new engine. Hope this helps. Good luck!

The same one that came out of it. Please no more frankenstein cars. We have way to many of them and the fact is no one want to fix them when they break because we don't know who did what to wear and what part came from what.
