    Are you saying the distributor you have installed doesn't have the crank sensor? The vtec and non-vtec distributors are totally different.

    Have you taken the valve cover off to make sure it is vtec? I would imagine there is a vtec solenoid if it is a vtec head? If it isn't a vtec head then I'd think that the distributor you are using isn't going to work. The vtec and non vtec f22bs have a different firing order I'm pretty sure.

    I'm not sure about the wiring in these accords. The pins can easily be swapped around if needed though. I'm sure there is a write up somewhere on exactly how this engine should be swapped and what parts and modifcations are needed.
