Default can an s2000 block be installed in a 93 accord?

I don't care much about emissions, just want to know if there is much fabrication involved i.e.: do i need new motor mounts, will it fit in the engine compartment, will it fit on original suspension, stuff like that.

no, s2000 is a rear drive engine, even if you found mounts to fit it there is no front drive trans that will work with it. you can do an h22, h23 or any other f series besides the f20c or f22c

It cannot unless you go through tons of fabrication of converting to RWD, since the H or the F series trannys won't bolt up to the F20. Im pretty sure that it will be easier to pass emissions with the F20 than F22 due to smaller displacement motor.

You would have to convert your car into RWD, make a new tunnel, and custom mounts and wiring. If you plan to strip your accord cust the rear section out move the gas tank and make and brace the rear end and everything else more power to you, but most likey your not.

Much fabrication. I know someone who put an S2000 engine in a Miata for track racing. You have to have a complete wiring harness, complete instrumentation, and the computer from the S2000 in order for it to work at all.For an accord you are looking at refabricating the subframe to make it rear wheel drive as there is no way that an S2000 engine will fit into the engine compartment after you attempt to fabricate an adapter for the transaxle.So basically unless you want to spend more money than simply trading your accord in on a brand new S2000, the answer is no.

perhaps you were thinking this because it's an 'f' series block. but no. way too much fabrication and money to do it. either buy an s2k, or drop an h series in your cb accord.
