youre joking right?

first of all the cb7 ex's did not have vtec. the cd5 was the first accord in the U.S. to get vtec. now yes the engine and trans will bolt up but the swap to a standard will take some extra work. you will need the axles off the 93, the halfshaft, and all the transmission and hydraulic components. you will also want the ecu, get rid of the tcu, and swap dashes. its not the easiest thing to do though.

why are you swapping? is your 93 wrecked?

No you google it. if it has vtec then it has a newer motor that was swapped into it. there is not a single 90-93 accord in the us that came with a vtec engine. they are the f22ax series. f22a1, f22a4, and f22a6, none of which have vtec. the f22a6 has a more agressive cam and IAB intake manifold but no vtec.

that 91 ex he has does not have vtec unless it has swapped in motor. your friends must also be swapped. tell me this. find the engine code on the block to the left of the exhuast manifold and tell me what it says.

and by the way: OP sorry for this and i apologize. this is the section for 94-97 accords. you would probably have greater luck in the future in the cb7 forums below these on the main page. as i stand though your swap is possible.

Please do not give out information until you are dead certain you know what you are talking about. It sounds like you have been too busy playing with those billy goat cars too long.

91ex is a f22a4 93lx is a f22a1 the ONLY differeance is the a4 has a better flowing exhaust manifold so they will interchange with no issues.

The tranny swap will take a lil more effort since you have to completly remove the auto tranny and all its coolant lines, then you gotta run clutch pedal, clutch line and blah blah blah, its some work but its well worth the effort in the end

all correct..... cept it isn't necessay to swap the dash out.... the cluster IF you want the manual one but also not necessary. ECU from the 91 will work as is, and you can simply unplug the tcu.....

There is no VTEC on any 90-93 Accords, and there is a full thread on what to do and how to do the auto to 5 speed swap in the DIY section.
