recently my accord 88 crank started to make noise, and it gets worse in one day, mechanic opened up engine and took crank to kharadia, but he said crank is finished. he cannot do anything with it now. so i decided to change the engine.
i went to engines market in pindi and i purchased HONDA D17A VTEC engine prosmatic transmission (2005 model). i already had auto transmission with my previous A18a1 engine.
i am expecting my car to be ready in two days. i want to ask the performance of this engine its 1.7 engine with VTEC, i havent seen anybody running accord with this engine so i want to ask weather it is a worthy swap or not? however i have already purchased the engine and installation is in progress.
there will be new mountings and foundation, same axles can be fit. so i am guessing it wouldn't be any problem in long run.
i will keep posting pictures.
