whys that is the accord slower :confused
umm well... yes... but that's not the point. The point is, the Accord engine was never made to fit into an Integra. I probably CAN be done, but it would require a lot of custom work. Depending on the year/model of Accord, it probably has comparable hp and much more torque, but it's just not worth it at all. Why, is your engine falling to peices at the moment? It's not like the LS engine is THAT inferior to the GS-R in stock form. We're only talking 30-40hphp up top and 1-7lb/ft depending on year. The LS motor really isn't that bad at all...

The engines on that salvage site look like hell. Stay away. There is no way they could have internally inspected them because that would require removing the head and replacing the head gasket. For all you know, those engines could be hydrolocked as well. You are MUCH better off getting a low mileage JDM longblock. This LS is only $750.
