When swapping motors its not the question of will it work, more of "Will it fit?". You can practically put any engine into any car(so long as it fits). If you have the proper tools, the right money, and alot of patience sure you can swap a B18C into an `88 Accord.
You will need new axles, engine mounts, and wiring harness, as well u will need to convert your car to OBD0 or OBD1 I believe. Most of the parts neeeded can be aquired from Placeracing.
The H22A swap is probably not feasible for the average Honda guy. The motor alone is very expensive and everything must be custom made to fit in your car. I suggest you stick to a B18c. This should help yah good luck.
