Re: Gen2 engine Help.

Replacing the valve seals -- or even a complete valve job -- should be less than a whole engine. As far as what will drop in, you're basically looking at the A18A (ET2) and A20A (BT) engines that came with the car. Those same engines were shared with the Accord in various forms, so shouldn't be rare, but I'd think that anything you find will be old enough to require some work.
