Will a 96 prelude trans fit in a 93 accord?
Yes, I actually bought a 93 accord trans for my 96 prelude. The 91-93 accords have the same engine and trans as the 92-96 preludes.
Will front cross members for a 1988 accord bolt up to a 1990 accord body. wanting to do a complete swap motor trans front?
I don't think so. The 90-93(4th gen) and 94-97(5th gen) share some parts especially suspension and have similar engine bays, but I don't think that the 98+ share much. If you are looking to do an engine swap check out www.cb7tuner.com for a list that will fit. One of the more common seems to be the H22 from the 92-96 Honda Prelude which will bolt in and only need some minor modifications.
It should, I believe dx and lx engines are the same 90-93, the EX engines where slightly different same block different intake manifold, some of the early fourth generation(90-93) accords had external coils while the later ones(like my 93) had internal coil. just use wichever distributor will fit your wiring harness. also the EX manifold might fit the lx wiring harness, you would have to look at a wiring diagram. the EX manifold increases Horsepower…
