Rep: 10 Verxaa is on a distinguished road
Default Engine swap or new car?

So, I recently got a job that is a lot better paying and was wondering what would be a better or more worth my while I own a 1994 Accord ex 5 speed and was thinking of putting a h22a into it. Or leaving it stock and waiting as I build up money to maybe get a V6 accord or something? I am a complete noob, I have been on other forums and only found mixed answers. Any replies will be appreciated!!!!

Thanks,

I'd leave it be and save your cash for something newer and nicer. What are you looking for in a car? What kind of budget are we talking about?

Thank you for the reply!! I'd be looking for something a bit faster but I would like to stay Japanese if possible my budget could be roughly 6-10k if all goes as planned

I just bought a nice 2006 Mazda 3 5 speed in that budget

There's loads of cool Jap cars you can get in that budget. A nicely swapped 240 with a SR20 would be in that budget or even just a stock KA24 240 would be well under. A Civic Si, Lexus SC300/400, WRX, etc etc all fit into that budget easily. Mike's suggestion of a Mazda 3 is probably the smartest. It's reasonably fun to drive, fuel efficient, and reliable.
