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
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.
damn this sucks ass...so theres only a front lip for it...shit....u think i sould just keep my civic???cuz im more of a show guy....i guess i just want i/h/e bodykit and rims...are there more lip kits/bumpers for the 2.2 or is it all the same???
great!! thats why i wanted it in the first place..cuz its so rare..do u knoe if there are any factory lips or anything like that??..i figure imma jsut get the 3.0..cuz it has the power already..do u knoe any other tips/tricks about the cl?
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.
buy the 3.2 type S you can find some for like 22-24k and put the new comptech supercharger i am pretty sure they are going to be available for the 3.2 u will be pushing like 300HP on a front wheel drive coupe.
