actually, you may have a chance... the '96 accord did come with a 2.2L engine, but it was NOT vtec. he was bs'ing you if he told you that. the engine is the f22, which is 145hp/145ftlbs with SOHC. unless hes got an H22 prelude 2.2L swapped in there (which is pretty much a direct bolt in), it has no vtec.

I know no one really cares but I just found out that the engine was not a drop in, apparently the v-tech engine was an option for the 96 accord. just thought Id clear that up.
you were right, i looked it up, and the 2.2 is VTEC, but its a SOHC, and not for performance (SOHC VTEC is for fuel economy, DOHC VTEC is for performance). its 145hp/145ftlbs as i stated above. you will probably be able to beat him, or it will be very close at the least
