B series swap on a 1986 honda prelude

I have a 1986 Honda prelude with, what I think is a A20a3 motor. Knowing there isn't much aftermarket support for the A series motors, I was considering doing a B series engine swap. I found some innovative motor mounts for the 86-89 honda accords. would these motor mounts work with the 86 prelude as well? Also, is a B series engine swap in a older prelude practical?

a B is a perfectly good swap and fits fine. It has been done plenty of times, but i cant promise how good those mounts work with the lude. The engines are the same as the accord, but the frame is not. Although it is still likely cheaper using them as a base rather than having mounts made from scratch.

And if you do have Fuel injected (A20A3) then you are off to a much better start.

Also check 3geez. There is still some activity there. This place is dead.
