the 3.0 can not be swapped, because the engine mounts are way different. i have a 2.2 so i am a biased opinion on which one is better. there is less of a chance of tranny problems with the stick, and more parts available. headers for the 3.0 cost 1000 bucks while headers for the 2.2 are only about 300. with a bit of work the 2.2 could keep up with a 3.0

any other questions just ask

There are more parts available for the 2.2. The only body kit available is Wings West from lip. If you put in some heavy many hours, some accord kits will fit. For the 3.0 engine wise you are sort of limited, headers(only comptech makes them), exhaust, CAI, chip, New cat, pulleys, cam gears, I have also head of new intake manifold-but i dont think i has great results.

For the 2.2 there are more options, there are all the bolt ons and also gude head and cam, Turbo, and always the option of an h22a.

no body stuff for the 2.2 either.

One of the great things about a CL, is that you can drive all day in it and never see another CL. I see more civics with body kits and rims than i do CL's modded or not.

the side skirts from 2dr accords will fit with very little mods, so you could get the front lip, side skirts, then you have to figure out what to do to the rear bumper.

hey, maybe you should look into getting the 98-2000 Accord coupe, its basicaly the same car, IMO it looks a little better too...sorry 2.2/3.0 CL people. mods are about the same for the older cl and the coupe, you have the choice of 2.3 I4 w/ auto or stick. or you can have 3.0 V6 auto. there are alot of body kits available for the 98-2000 accord coupes that is why i think you should look into it if you really want to get a body kit. if you get a EX accord with leather it has all the features a CL has minus a bose radio... but hey i dont think anyone on this board has a stock radio. :)
