Default Engine Swap Difficulty Quick Reference Charts

When it comes to Honda engine swaps, there are literally dozens of possible engine/chassis combinations. The following charts will hopefully give you a good idea of any difficulties you may run into with particular engine swaps. The charts are divided up by model (Accord, Civic, etc.), and then subdivided by the different chassis variants of each model.

In order to use the charts, simply find your particular model and year of car, and then cross reference it with the type of motor and transmission setup you want to swap in. Once you find the numbers for your swap, look up their meaning in the reference key below to see what kind of difficulties you can expect when performing your engine transplant.

Reference Key

1 = Beginner difficulty; bolt-in swap
2 = Intermediate difficulty; mostly bolt-in
3 = Difficult swap; fabrication, welding, and/or aftermarket engine mounts may be required
4 = Minor wiring changes are necessary
5 = Major wiring changes and/or OBD conversion may be necessary
6 = Cable-to-hydraulic transmission conversion (or vice versa) is necessary
N/A = Swap is either impossible or highly impractical and should be avoided
