    Yeah you shoulda kept the F22, without vtec they can make more power than the vtec F22b. As to your problem, i really am not sure. Why didnt you keep the obd1 harness and distributor though. You could have used that and then ran you vtec wires from the engine to ecu. Sounds like you did some uneeded work.

    my motor was killed got this one with tranny, with only 13,000 miles couldnt pass it up. i never swapped a car before, talked to Rywire and they said to make the 2 harness's into 1 . to late use the stock harness now. i tried though before i sent it out and plugs were short among other things

    what do you mean it doesn't run good? is it misfiring, or just slow.

    fyi... my accord doesn't hardly have any power down that low... i can feel a big jump at around 2000rpm

    it is cutting out and bucking. not slow, past 2000rpm and it runs smooth to redline, it is misfiring from one thing or another, not plugs wires ect...

    replaced it already it feels like a timing issue, but why only through a certain rpm?
