Has anyone ever put the d15z1 in an 87-89 Accord. I have an 88 Accord LXI w/an auto and I want to put a VX engine with the HF transmission. What parts would be needed to complete the project? Can I squeeze 50mpg out of the setup? Any info is greatly appreciated and thanks in advance!
This setup is about 700-1000 pounds heavier than a comparable Honda CRX, so realize you'd be hauling around about 40-50% or more vehicle than if you did this in a CRX. If you did a 1976-81 or 82-85 Accord you'd be a LOT better off, as the body weighs a lot less.
The VX weighs in at about 2094 pounds dry.
(Any CRX would work, btw)
The Accord weighs in from 2493-2718, so you are hauling around a LOT of extra steel to put it in an Accord that new or newer. Much better off with an older body, and it is a LOT of work.
